Florida Governor DeSantis says ‘freedom lives here’ as he begins second term | app

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Declaring that “freedom lives here in our great, sunny state of Florida,” Gov. Ron DeSantis was sworn in Tuesday for a second term amid widespread belief he would soon run for president.

In his 16-minute speech outside the Old Florida Capitol, far shorter than some of his campaign speeches, DeSantis gave few details about his agenda for the state, reverting instead to impassioned rhetoric of the culture war that helped him get re-elected in November.
