    I'm not surprised. He's been crushing it on the environmental side so far, which was the biggest issue for most Floridians last election. I voted for him very very tepidly, but if he can lead with common sense ideas I think perhaps he can be very good for the state. It's also only been two months, plenty of time to make me regret my vote.

    I was an environmental voter last election and I was wrong. He was such a Trump suck up I did not trust him. But he has cleaned out some of the stench and corruption from Scott's administration especially appointees to state environmental boards as well as addressing recent initiatives passed by citizens but ignored by the Florida house and senate. I am pleasantly surprised and give him an above average grade.

    I voted for him, and I am proud to say that he has not disappointed me in his support.

    Yeh but, but, but …. DeSantis once had admin "authorities" on a web site where some user once posted "white supremist" comments …. so, uh, gee … DeSantis is unfit to be Gov. Well, at least that's what I read on this very board.

    You can be a competent governor and still hold racist views.

    I voted for him figuring he was the lesser of two evils. Gillum was a sleaze bag who would have done nothing to reclaim the Everglades. I have been pleasantly surprised.

    I voted for the other guy while holding my nose, but I must say, so far, so good, thumbs up. Keep up the good work sir.
