Rep. Ron DeSantis formulated a game plan for his townhall to avoid the backlash others in the Freedom Caucus are facing. First, he didn’t back down from his criticism of Trumpcare, and many of his constituents agreed with him, saying it would have made Obamacare’s problems worse. Second, he utilized a moderator to ask him questions rather than field questions directly from the floor. Third, no signs were allowed. And fourth, he got the local pro-Trump groups to show up rather than let the Left dominate attendance.
