Time Magazine: Florida Gov. DeSantis One Of The 100 Most Influential People Of 2022

DeSantis’ donors beg to disagree. CNN reported on Friday that DeSantis has raised more than $100 million for his re-election campaign this year.

On Monday, Florida’s Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis was named one of the 100 most influential people for 2022.

DeSantis was selected by Time magazine, which included him among 23 people on its list that were identified as “leaders.”

That bipartisan, international roster also included President Joe Biden, podcaster Joe Rogan, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, Russian President Vladimir Putin, Chinese President Xi Jinping, and Arizona Sen. Kyrsten Sinema.

Former Florida Republican Gov. Jeb Bush penned a short blurb for Time explaining how DeSantis made the lineup.

“During the pandemic, most people stayed home, and those who didn’t probably moved to Florida. Despite relentless criticism, Governor Ron DeSantis kept schools open, ensured Florida’s economy remained open for business, and allowed individuals to determine their own risk tolerance,” Bush wrote.

“His approach works.”

Continuing, Bush added, “It’s one that has allowed Florida to emerge from the pandemic as a national model of personal freedom, economic growth, environmental protection, and education excellence.”

“Florida continues to see record population growth, unemployment remains below the national average, the private sector is growing, and Florida remains a national leader in school choice,” Bush noted. “On top of that, DeSantis has demonstrated his environmental credentials with major investments to restore America’s Everglades, preserve and expand wildlife corridors, and protect Florida’s precious waterways.”

“While the Beltway crowd may not like his style, it’s his record that will become his legacy,” Bush concluded.
