Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) tamped down the establishment media’s efforts to escalate a supposed rift between former President Donald Trump and the governor, telling reporters that “people just need to chill out.”
The remark came at the end of a news conference on Wednesday, following the governor awarding $8.7 million for Hurricane Ian recovery. When asked about the potential “Civil War” brewing in the GOP, with people supposedly choosing between Trump and DeSantis, the governor dismissed the speculation.
“We just finished this election,” he began. “People just need to chill out a little bit on some of this stuff.”
“I mean, seriously. We just ran an election,” DeSantis continued. “We have this Georgia (Senate) runoff coming, which is very important for Republicans to win that Georgia runoff.”

DeSantis pointed to the historic victories in the Sunshine State in last week’s midterm election, emphasizing that he secured a “historic” victory because his administration led, delivered, and “had your back when you needed us.”
