Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis said on Fox News that he plans to sign the state’s newly passed bill to ban males who identify as female from competing in girls’ sports.
The governor’s statement took place during a town hall event Friday night led by Fox News host Laura Ingraham.
When asked if DeSantis planned to sign the bill, he responded, “Oh, yes. We’re going to protect our girls.”
DeSantis added, “I have a 4-year-old daughter and a 1-year-old daughter, and they’re very athletic. And we want to have opportunities for our girls. They deserve an even playing field.
“And that’s what we’re doing, with what Mississippi did, with what Florida did, and I know what other states are going to do. So, I look forward to being able to sign that into law.”
