California Governor Gavin Newsom (D) revealed the reasoning behind his decision to attack Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) in an ad.
On July 3, Newsom posted an ad on Twitter with the caption, “We’re celebrating Independence Day – but Freedom is being attacked by Republican leaders in states like Florida.”
He added, “Book ban. Limited speech. Makes voting more difficult. Criminalization of women and doctors. It’s time to stand up. Don’t let them take away your freedom”.
In the ad, Newsom urges Florida residents to join the fight or move to California.

In an interview with the Sacramento Bee, Newsom said DeSantis “did something that made me very direct, and that came after the Special Olympics. I had an emotional reaction to that. “
He added, “That led to the consideration of doing something a little more expressive and that’s the determination on the ad.”
The Bee noted just before the start of the 2022 U.S. Olympics Special Olympics, the Florida Department of Health said it would fine the organization $27.5 million unless it dropped its vaccination mandate.
Newsom responded in a tweet at the time, saying, “Ron DeSantis’ values are on full display: Bullying. The. Especially. Olympic. “

DeSantis gave his own response to the ad during a press conference in Cape Coral, Florida.
“California is driving people away with their bad management,” DeSantis said.
He continued, “They are hemorrhaging the population. It’s almost impossible to drive people out of a place like California for their natural advantages, but they’re finding a way to do it.”
DeSantis argued that Florida has “created a citadel of liberty here that attracts people, and we’re proud of that.”
Newsom’s campaign spokesman, Nathan Click, told Insider DeSantis the idea of freedom “means the government forces rape victims to bring in their attacker’s children.”
He added, “’Freedom’ in Florida means that any 18 year old can buy an AR-15 and unlimited ammunition, no questions asked. Governor DeSantis’ idea of ’freedom’ has resulted in 40,000 Floridians dying because of the policies he introduced during the pandemic. DeSantis’ liberal reception is simply not American. “
