Florida Governor Ron DeSantis rushes to the aid of woman who passed out during press conference

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is an exceptionally competent leader. He's also a good man.

DeSantis halted a press conference to make sure that a woman who passed out nearby was okay, the Washington Examiner reported. The Florida Republican was giving an update on the state's efforts to rebuild after Hurricane Ian when the incident occurred.

In video footage tweeted by The Recount, DeSantis is seen coming to the aid of an unidentified woman who fainted. The governor repeated a bystander's request for water for the woman and didn't leave the crowd until it was clear she was better.

"She’s gonna be OK," DeSantis said. The news conference resumed shortly thereafter.

"She's fine," Republican State Sen. Kathleen Passidomo said from the lectern. "And this just goes to show you the first person who came to her aid was our great governor."

The governor has shined during the cleanup and rebuilding effort following Hurricane Ian. Despite the left's hopes that they could use his response as a political club, DeSantis has done an outstanding job for the people of Florida.

Earlier this month, he received high praise from President Joe Biden. "What the governor's done is pretty remarkable," Biden said at an Oct. 5 news conference, according to Newsweek.

"I think he's done a good job," the president added. Biden acknowledged that he and the Republican governor "have very different political philosophies" but have still been "in complete lockstep" with how they're handling the aftermath of the hurricane that made landfall in September.

However, one Democrat who is not pleased with DeSantis and his willingness to reach across the aisle is his political rival, Charlie Crist, according to USA Today.  The Democratic gubernatorial candidate attempted to downplay the impact his response to Hurricane Ian would have on the upcoming election.

"It got him a lot of air time," Crist said. "We’ll see how people feel about their property insurance."

For his part, DeSantis has downplayed the impact the storm should have in politics. "You don’t have to politicalize every single tragedy in this country," he said.

DeSantis is a man who cares enough about the people of Florida to lead them to prosperity and renewed freedom. He's also a man who deeply cares on a personal level -- and Democrats don't stand a chance against a person like that.
