California's Gov. Newsom targets the Florida GOP in a Fox News ad

Election 2022 California Governor
Rich Pedroncelli
California Gov. Gavin Newsom discusses the recent mass shooting in Texas during a news conference in Sacramento, CA on May 25, 2022.

Gov. Gavin Newsom is running for reelection in California, but his latest television ad is airing in Florida.

The 30-second spot scheduled to air on Fox News starting Monday takes shots at Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and his policies, while drawing a contrast with California.

Newsom says in the ad that he urges Florida residents to “join us in California.”

Newsom has said he has no interest in running for president, but the ad is sure to stoke speculation that the 54-year-old Democrat is eyeing national office.
