Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis fired back at House Speaker Kevin McCarthy on spending after the Republican leader said that former President Donald Trump will be 2024 GOP presidential nominee and the two aren't on the "same level."
He added that Trump and McCarthy were on the "same team" on "every major spending bill" that added $7.8 trillion to the national debt. Andrew Mark Miller is a reporter at Fox News. Find him on Twitter @andymarkmiller and email tips to AndrewMark.Miller@Fox.com.
"Never in a four-year period has that much been added than what they did together. And so he (McCarthy) said we’re different. We are different, because in Florida, we run budget surpluses, We’ve paid down nearly 25% of our state’s debt just since I’ve been governor," said DeSantis.
