Speaking this weekend at the Faith and Family conference, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis received a rousing standing ovation.

During his speech, DeSantis stressed the need to stand strong against “the left’s schemes.”

“It ain’t going to be easy,” DeSantis said. “You got to be strong. You got to put on the full armor of God. You got to take a stand, take a stand against the left’s schemes, you got to stand your ground, you got to be firm, you will face flaming arrows, but take up the shield of faith and fight on.”

“So I look forward to joining with you in the battles to come. I can tell you that in the state of Florida, I’ll be holding the line, I’ll be standing my ground, I won’t back down, and I have only begun to fight,” he continued.
