Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said on Friday in his opening remarks at this year’s Conservative Political Action Convention that the Republican Party must move away from the “establishment of yesteryear.”

The governor began by describing Florida, where the convention is being held, as “an oasis of freedom in a nation that’s suffering from the yoke of oppressive lockdowns.”

He went on to say that “Florida’s leading on the issues that matter to conservatives. We don’t spout hollow rhetoric. We take decisive action. And what’s true in Florida is what’s true for conservatives across this nation.

“We cannot, we will not go back to the days of the failed Republican establishment of yesteryear.”

DeSantis added, “We reject open borders and instead support American sovereignty and the American worker. Building a movement on the foundation of amnesty and cheap foreign labor is like building a house on quicksand.

“We reject weakness in the face of the threat posed by China,” he continued. “We reject military adventurism and instead support a strong defense solely for the purpose of protecting this nation and its people.”
