FreedomWorks Statement on Resignation of Rep. Ron DeSantis

WASHINGTON, D.C. — In response to Rep. Ron DeSantis’ (R-Fla.) decision to resign from the House of Representatives in an effort to better concentrate on his Florida gubernatorial campaign, Adam Brandon, FreedomWorks President, commented:

“Rep. DeSantis is doing the right thing by resigning when he knows full well he will not be in town for important votes this fall. This is the honorable thing to do because it means American taxpayers won’t foot the bill for a member who is never in Washington.

“If only every member of Congress would be fiscally responsible enough to do their job and not use their seat for political grandstanding.FreedomWorks wishes Rep. DeSantis the best of luck going into November.”

A principled conservative, Rep. DeSantis maintained a respectable 84% lifetime score on the FreedomWorks Congressional Scorecard.
