TAMPA -- Florida Governor Ron DeSantis praises the deep-fried specialty foods at the Florida State Fair, while roasting environmental, social and governance policies. At the annual Governor's Luncheon, DeSantis said ESG threatens Florida farmers by challenging agricultural practices over climate change.
The governor says he also plans to sample some of the fair food. DeSantis plans to try a "Florida quesadilla" made of gator nuggets, while his children are getting Oreo cinnamon buns and Barbie funnel cakes. "I know that when I bring that Barbie funnel cake home to my three-year-old daughter, and she eats it after dinner, that I am not going to get her (to go) to bed on time," DeSantis said.
