'damn, it feels good to be here'
SUMTER COUNTY, FLORIDA (FOX NEWS) – Florida first lady Casey DeSantis made an exultant return to the campaign trail Monday evening in support of her husband following a battle with breast cancer.
The first lady of the Sunshine State, accompanied by Gov. Ron DeSantis, made the appearance and offered remarks at a “DeSantis Day” campaign event held at The Villages in Sumter County.
“Governor, I don’t know if this sounds very first lady-like, but damn it feels good to be here,” she said after being welcomed on stage by her husband. “Let me say this, no matter what you’re going through in life, no matter how hard things seem like they are, no matter how hard it feels like you have to pick yourself off the ground, or you feel like your back is against the wall, fight! Fight like hell!”
“Never ever give up, never ever back down,” she continued, just weeks after receiving her final radiation treatment. “I am the testament that God is great, that God is good, and hope is alive.”
In closing her remarks, DeSantis reflected on a message her father frequently tells her. “Ever since I was little, he would call me on the phone, and he’d say, ‘Casey, have faith and don’t let the bastards win,'” she said.
