More than 300 people showed up to the rally hosted by the Political Action Committee called Never Back Down. Several supporters say they are excited for a candidate who will stand for the country.

“I am officially 100% endorsing Ron DeSantis for President and we’re going to win in Oklahoma,” Governor Kevin Stitt announced.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis says he wants to gain Oklahomans’ support to reach the White House and overturn several of President Joe Biden’s policies.

“Lord knows Joe Biden has failed on the economy. We know he has failed,” DeSantis said.

The Political Action Committee Never Back Down organized the rally in Tulsa. It comes after former President Donald Trump was indicted this week.

Trump and DeSantis are the frontrunners in a growing field of GOP candidates.

“I’d vote for Ron. I’d vote for Ron, but I’d also like to see what happens to Trump, too,” attendee Mike Kellogg said.

The Florida Governor is known for his “anti-woke” policies and says he will maintain those policies if he is elected as President.

“Woke represents a war on the truth. You have to have a society in which the truth matters,” DeSantis said.

“I think he is trying to do what most conservatives are trying to do. I don’t worry about me, but I have 20 grandchildren and I would rather deal with it now than deal with it later,” Kellogg said.

DeSantis spoke on several of his policies, including what should and shouldn’t be taught to children in school, securing the southern border, ending mass immigration, and holding medical establishments like the CDC accountable for COVID lockdowns.

“I want whosever gonna have the cojones like Trump did to get in and get a job done, do the best you can,” Kellogg said. “I wish he toned down a bit, but he didn’t. I think what they’re doing to him is despicable and I think most people do.

Governor Ron DeSantis also has the endorsement of 20 Oklahoma representatives and senators.
