On this special edition of the New Hampshire Journal podcast, Gov. Ron DeSantis recounts his COVID experience — from the day he first heard about a new virus beginning to spread, to his current political battle with former President Donald Trump over COVID policy.

Once denounced as “Death-Santis” for his refusal to close beaches and aggressively reopen schools, DeSantis recounts why he made the decisions he did, what he learned about leading during a crisis and why his friends were more worried about his political future than he was.

Is Trump right that DeSantis  “shut down Florida. It was tight as a drum?” Did the Florida governor have “no doubt” about sending kids back to school in the fall of 2020?

It’s all part of the conversation.
