Florida Governor Ron DeSantis won’t succeed in bringing a long-awaited casino to Miami Beach this year, but he made his stance clear for the future.
DeSantis, who ended his presidential campaign two weeks ago, failed to convince important legislators to join his divisive pro-casino push. However, he still has three years left in office and appears as if he will help drive the casino bill process forward in the upcoming legislative sessions.
The Republican Governor has often gotten his way with legislative issues, notably involving his push for legal sports betting. Experts theorized that his failed bid for president could have reduced his influence over lawmakers.
