The Kansas City Chiefs were not very welcoming on Saturday, putting an abrupt end to the playoff hopes of the Jacksonville Jaguars.

But Chiefs fans appeared to give Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis a warm welcome.

DeSantis, a Republican, attended the game to cheer on the Jags. As shown by a video circulating on social media over the weekend, many Chiefs fans shook hands with DeSantis and applauded him as he walked along the edge of the field.

As David Hookstead, a writer for the conservative sports website Outkick.com noted, “Fans appeared to be very happy to see Ron DeSantis at the Chiefs/Jaguars game Saturday. … Chiefs fans (and a single guy in a Jags jersey) lined up to shake his hand, and one young man could be heard shouting, ‘You’re the best governor. Run for president!’”

Hookstead noted that DeSantis’ presence may have just demonstrated his desire to watch the Jags, since they were the last remaining Florida team in the NFL playoffs after the first round.

“However,” he added, the [Miami] Dolphins – another Florida team – played in Buffalo last weekend, and he wasn’t there. Is it because New York is a solid blue state no matter what while Missouri has gone red since 2000?”

Hookstead added, “It’s definitely food for thought. DeSantis is an incredibly popular man inside and outside of Florida. A poll conducted by NBC News back in December showed that 86% of Republicans have a favorable view of him, and that comes after he absolutely mauled Charlie Crist in the 2022 election. People love the man. As you can see in the video, every single person he walked past wanted to shake his hand.”

“Going to a solid red state for a postseason game kind of kills two birds with one stone. It lets you cheer on a Florida team and it allows you to show your face at a national event. Judging by the reception, Chiefs fans were happy to have him there.”

“No matter what he decides [about running for president], there’s no question people love the man who kept Florida open and free.”
