    Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) addressed rumors his wife Casey could be considering a political future of her own in the near future.

    The Republican governor shot down speculation of his wife’s political ambitions at an event in Coral Gables. Recent polls have suggested that Casey DeSantis would be strongly favored in a hypothetical Republican primary for governor. 

    Asked about those polls, DeSantis smiled and told reporters, “If I had to characterize her interest in getting into the political thicket as a candidate, I would say, I would characterize it as zero. But, you know, I think it’s because she has had a front row seat on all the nonsense that goes on when you do it.”

    In an interview with Fox News’ Harris Faulkner in 2023, DeSantis said “humility” is what defined her as the first lady of the Sunshine State.

    “I think one who looks at the role with a lot of humility,” Casey said. “It isn’t about me. It is about being in a position to be able to do good on behalf of the people of this state and hopefully of this country.”

    Before her husband’s election as governor in 2018, DeSantis enjoyed a career as a television host, reporter and anchor.
