Newsom running ads attacking GOP in Florida: 'Don't let them take your freedom'

California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) has is airing a new ad in Florida targeting Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) and GOP lawmakers over a wave of new legislation targeting LGBTQ rights, voting rights, so-called "critical race theory" and abortion.

In a 30-second ad that will start airing on Fox News on Monday, Newsom, who is running for reelection, invites fed up Floridians to move to California, which he says still believes in protecting personal freedom.

“It's Independence Day. Let's talk about what's going on in America. Freedom. It's under attack in your state your Republican leaders, they're banning books, making it harder to vote, restricting speech in classrooms, even criminalizing women and doctors,” Newsom says.

The ad shows DeSantis shaking hands with former President Trump with the words “Freedom is under attack”

“I urge all of you live in Florida to join the fight, or join us in California, where we still believe in freedom, freedom of speech, freedom to choose, freedom from hate and the freedom to love,” Newsom added. “Don't let them take your freedom.”

Both DeSantis and Newsom are seen as potential presidential candidates for their parties, having developed national profiles through their leadership of two of the country's largest states. Polls show DeSantis trailing only Trump as the presidential pick among GOP voters, while Newsom has said he has "sub-zero" interest in seeking the White House.

DeSantis and his state party stirred national controversy by passing a so-called "Don't Say Gay" bill, prohibiting teachers up to grade 4 from classroom instruction related to sexual orientation and gender identity.

He has also been among among a number of GOP governors who have restricting voting rights amid Trump's false claims of a rigged election in 2020, and moved to severely restrict abortions even before the Supreme Court's decision last week to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Newsom has previously boasted that California's economy is healthier than Florida's, and has shown an appetite for engaging Republicans across the country.
