It’s true that, if elected, I’d be the nation’s youngest governor. I’ll note the person who now meets that description, Governor Ron DeSantis, is doing a pretty darn good job.

DeSantis, for instance, had kids back in school a year ago. And he never forced masks on them. Gavin Newsom, by the starkest of contrasts, just announced he’ll defy the CDC and impose a new school mask mandate.

Newsom’s edict is as ignorant as it is cruel. I’ll reverse this outrage on day one. We’re also working with other counties on the Healthy Kids Resolution that just passed El Dorado and Orange County.

I also want to thank everyone who came to our Kickoff Rally (despite the 111 degree heat!). Here is the video. We have four major rallies coming up, with one in San Diego this Saturday. You can sign up here.

Finally, we’ve been greeted with quite a smear campaign online the last few days. For now, it seems to be sputtering out; the trolls made the mistake of concocting lies so crazy that few are taking them seriously.

It’s is a clear sign that California’s corrupt political class is threatened by our movement – and it’s surely just the beginning. We’re more than ready for the fight.
