DeSantis on Trump Attacks: 'Check the Scoreboard'

By    |   Tuesday, 15 November 2022 04:29 PM EST

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis shrugged off attacks from former President Donald Trump on Tuesday, telling onlookers to "check the scoreboard" on his overwhelming victory in last week's election.

DeSantis' response came in a Tuesday press conference after he initially avoided responding to Trump's attacks, which included criticisms of loyalty before the 2024 presidential primaries.

"One of the things I've learned, like learn in this job is ... when you're leading, when you're getting, getting things done, yeah, you take incoming fire. That's just the nature of it," DeSantis said.

DeSantis, a Republican, said criticisms of him by "corporate media outlets" shows that "what you learn is, all that's just noise."

"What matters is, Are you leading? Are you getting in front of issues? Are you delivering results for people, and are you standing up for folks? And if you do that, then none of that stuff matters. At the end of the day, I would just tell people to go check out the scoreboard from last Tuesday night."

DeSantis was referencing his 20-point victory over Democratic candidate Charlie Crist in which historically blue Miami-Dade and Palm Beach counties flipped to the Republican side.

The surprising results in an otherwise sloppy midterm for the GOP also saw Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, candidate Anna Paulina Luna, and Reps. Carlos Gimenez and Maria Salazar soar to victories over their Democratic rivals.
