[cheers and applause] >> my man donald trump. >> nikki haley! governor desantis, but what about president desantis? >> i like it. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ [cheers and applause] >> lawrence: you are looking at jacksonville, florida, where the sun is coming up already. one end of the slushy mess mess, ainsley. brian is having breakfast with friends. >> ainsley: is not too far away. [cheers and applause] at a diner called the metro diner. and he used to live there his wife right down the street, hey, brian.
5:02 am
[chanting: usa] >> film xp when they are pumped up and they love the country. when the sun came up, these guys are hitting their peak. by lunch time, they should be out of control but i'm keeping them somewhat under wraps but big final hour and of course we have governor desantis and tom cotton. for people here when you mention leonard skinner jacksonville, johnny van zant here, that is like the messiah coming down. so he will be here shortly. that is going to be great. and of course, we will be talking diner's and the living 40 miles north of the border thk about what's going on with the election and everything else biggest story in florida is central florida and what's going on with disney, lawrence? >> lawrence: that is exactly right, governor desantis really made the case on why he took on disney.
5:03 am
some conservatives say you shouldn't get involved. he told us exactly why he got involved, watch. >> is it free-market economics to have a corporation run its own government and be exempt from laws and be treated better than all of its competitors? of course not! that is corporate welfare. this is something that had been embedded in florida's dna because disney was very powerful for many, many decades that nobody questioned this. disney ran the show in the state for a long time until i became governor. we said, you know we will decide the people of florida. we will not kowtow to a woke company and california but make no mistake about it, lawrence. we have a more competitive market today than when they were operating their own government and enjoying the special privileges. >> lawrence: i guess this is my big question into you brian, to you as well why would they get a cup when other florida businesses have to make it on
5:04 am
their own que? >> ainsley: they felt like we are disney, the powerhouse and we come to florida for the spirit and he is saying "no more." if you are going to be political, you will jump into our schools and tell us what we can and can't do we will not support u.s. much either. that is what started this all. instead of stepping down from disney, bob eichinger, he said, ron desantis in his book, actually had a conversation, i'm feeling so much pressure, pressure like i've never felt before. here is a new ron desantis ad put out by the friends of ron desantis pack and it is making people wonder, is he really going to run for president? watches latest ad. >> one of the things that struck us in florida is floridians are pessimistic about the country's direction, about the biden administration, but yet, majority of them were very satisfied and encouraged by florida's direction. you think about it, normally if
5:05 am
things are going back naturally, people will feel bad across the board of cured people recognize florida has actually done it right. we stood for the right principles and we are ready to fight these fights when it's not easy. we stood up for a lot of people and lifted them up. that is why the state has succeeded. we have people visiting here, moving here like never before. i think the video is more about telling that story. so come i would say it's more about that than any type of campaign. >> that was him reacting to the ad with fox news poll has him above donald trump 43%, ron desantis 28%. if they ran against each other and those are the two leaders, trump put his name in the hat to run for president but desantis has not. what are people there sing about it? what is your feel? >> brian: walking through here it is very much trump country and home edge to the congressman, now governor who
5:06 am
could be president desantis. they really love him. this is the area that he represented as congressman. i used to work down to the metro diner and so he knows what it's like to come back here and write his first book. a couple of things, if you look at what ron desantis has done, it is not just disney. we know what he did for central florida. a place to go to. no one is minimizing their impact. if you think about ron desantis on "60 minutes" he took on nbc who mischaracterized and they kind of apologized. i'm going to go on that channel again. he took on the riots, the florida riots and the cop specifically. he took on the teachers unions. he has taken on crt, the ap forces. these are all things that are not manufactured. one thing he prizes himself on he has not taken a poll for anything he has done. this is what i do.
5:07 am
i collect as much information as i can. i make my decision and i asked my staff to implement it and call a press conference. let the chips fall where they may. you can ask where did the chips fall? 19-point win in the next election. the last time he won by 40,000 votes or something like that. so, it shows performance matters. had do you do once you got the job? that is what his book is about. what went into the decision with the ramifications and if you could put up with the attacks and walk through it, you will be successful. >> lawrence: brian it is interesting because i push the governor, you just wrote this book about what works, right? why don't you put a plan out and not run for president. by the way, i think he will run for president but he pushed back and have a brilliant answer. the reason why he did this, he is making a case for the states to have the power. not so much the centralized government where the president
5:08 am
is making all the decisions. but the book was almost a book for governors. >> brian: absolutely. he is a guy in charge. the question people have is can you take the florida blue print and bring it to illinois where it is blue? can you take the blueprint to california? guys come i have to ask the metro diner some questions, campo florida blueprint, which is our red state, can it work in a blue state? show of hands? will it get an opportunity to work in a blue state? you don't think so? so why is that, sir? why don't you think governor desantis policies work outside of florida? >> well, governor desantis is a governor of his own. he's done tremendous things for the state of florida. i don't think the democratic mayors are abrasive enough like for change.
5:09 am
>> brian: it is interesting because a democrat they came out and defend a governor of desantis when telling him he's only giving vaccines to the peoe who voted for him. it was the democrat that said that is not the case at all but we teamed with another supermarket chain who wanted to help out. that was kind of true peer they are listening to the show on the app, get the fox news app. listen to it. what is your name, sir? >> nick. >> brian: do you think though florida blueprint can work somewhere else? >> it is a tough one. it could, it couldn't, probably not. it might but it would take a lot of teamwork, formation across the board. >> brian: a lot of people think when it comes to woke policies, governor sununu, successful in new hampshire come i don't get involved in local politics. i'm against woke but that's not my job as governor. what is your name? >> joann. do you think governor sununu's right to not get involved in woke politics? as governor i have to get
5:10 am
involved. >> governor desantis is always right. [applause] listen, we will talk to the diners and the metro manager too appear to be kind of took over today. this is the worst nightmare for a owner, we sit for three and a half hours. tipped good, everybody. back to the studio, we will be back shortly.

5:11 am
all of the nine candidates that you see in this race are all democrats. people think differently in this town. the nine candidates ensure, making it pretty sure that we will not see anybody win tonight. you have to have 50% so probably a runoff pier at the top for coal mayor lori lightfoot as you point out who had a rough four years and crime has skyrocketed on her watch and whither we blame her, we will decide tonight, and paul vallas the closest you will get to in this race. but he said he's a lifelong democrat but the handcuffs need to come off of the police in chicago. and he said he's more republican than democrat. now, a lifelong democrat. jesus garcia lost to rahm emanuel and brandon johnson got the attention of the business community not in a good way because he wants to tax the
