Governor Ron DeSantis took an unusual move by giving an endorsement for the non-partisan Lee County school board race.

DeSantis publicly endorsed Armor Persons and Sam Fisher in July for a spot on the Lee County school board. And in August a committee that supports the Governor, Friends of Ron DeSantis, sent out mailers to Lee County voters.

District five incumbent, Gwyn Gittens, is happy for her one and only competitor, Persons.

“I can only speak for myself,” said Gittens. “And I know that the two candidates subscribe to the same thing.”
