Republican Pennsylvania gubernatorial candidate Doug Mastriano said Friday that he will aim to make Pennsylvania “the Florida of the north.”

DeSantis is slated to campaign for Mastriano, a Trump-endorsed candidate, at Turning Point Action’s “Unite & Win” rally in the lead up to the Pennsylvania Republican gubernatorial primary. Mastriano told One America News Network (OAN) that the Florida governor has “set the gold standard” for how to run a state.

“We heard from him and his team a couple weeks ago asking if we’d be interested in doing a rally in Pittsburgh and I’m like ‘are you kidding me? Heck yes’ because my goal as governor of Pennsylvania is make Pennsylvania the Florida of the north because he set the gold standard for the good a governor can do leading a state,” Mastriano said.

The governor has campaigned in Arizona and New Mexico in support of Trump-backed candidates, including Republican Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake, New Mexico Rep. Yvette Herrell and gubernatorial nominee Mark Ronchetti. He is scheduled to rally in Pittsburgh and Youngstown, Ohio in support of senate and gubernatorial hopefuls, including Mastriano and Republican Ohio senate candidate J.D. Vance.
