Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis traveled to Cobb County, Georgia, on Thursday to visit a popular gun store as part of his ongoing book tour ahead of what is expected to be a presidential campaign announcement this summer. The previously scheduled trip happened to come days after a shooter killed six people at a private school in Nashville, Tennessee, which Georgia Democrats noted in criticizing DeSantis, who is seen as a rising Republican star after easily winning reelection in November. The governor is continuing a tour pegged to his new memoir and promoting what he calls Florida's "blueprint" for the rest of the country, believing it can serve as a model for governing and politics nationwide.
