In 2005, he graduated from Naval Justice School.

In 2006, he was promoted to lieutenant from lieutenant junior grade. He worked directly with detainees at the Joint Detention Facility at Guantanamo Bay for the commander of Joint Task Force-Guantanamo (JTF-GTMO). 

In 2007, DeSantis reported to the Naval Special Warfare Command Group in Coronado, California, where he was assigned to SEAL Team One and deployed to Iraq as the Legal Advisor to the SEAL Commander, Special Operations Task Force-West in Fallujah as part of the troop surge. 

In April 2008, DeSantis returned to the United States and was reassigned to the Naval Region Southeast Legal Service.

Until his honorable discharge from active duty in February 2010, DeSantis was assigned as a trial defense attorney.

U.S. House of Representatives

2012 Election

In 2012, DeSantis declared his intention to compete in the Republican primary for Florida's 6th congressional district. The district was formerly the 7th and was represented by 10-term Republican John Mica. However, Mica's portion of Orlando was drawn into the new 7th District, and he chose to run there despite the fact that the new 6th District included the majority of his former territory. 

The runner-up in the six-candidate Republican primary was state representative Fred Costello, who received 24% of the vote. In the general election held in November, DeSantis defeated Heather Beaven, the Democratic nominee, 57–43%, with majorities in all four counties.


On January 29, 2014, DeSantis introduced into the House the Faithful Execution of the Law Act of 2014 (H.R. 3973, 113th Congress), a bill that would require the United States Department of Justice to report to Congress whenever a federal agency refrains for any reason from enforcing laws or regulations. The government would have to explain in the report why it chose not to enforce the law. DeSantis spoke in favor of the bill, arguing that "President Obama has not only failed to uphold several of our nation's laws, but has also vowed to continue doing so in order to implement his unpopular agenda....The American people deserve to know precisely which laws the Obama administration is refusing to enforce and why." The bill was not signed into law. 

In 2013, DeSantis signed a pledge sponsored by Americans for Prosperity in which he pledged to vote against any global warming legislation that would increase taxes. 

On August 24, 2017, DeSantis added a rider to the proposed fiscal 2018 spending bill package that would end funding for the Mueller investigation "or for the investigation in that order of matters occurring before June 2015" (the month in which Trump announced his candidacy for president). This provision would take effect 180 days after the bill's passage. The amendment was intended to counter a bill drafted by two Democratic and two Republican U.S. senators to restrict the president's authority to fire the special counsel. The DeSantis amendment intended to end funding for the investigation by November 2017, It was also a response to Rod Rosenstein's statement that the Department of Justice "does not conduct fishing expeditions." The May 17, 2017 DOJ order, according to DeSantis, "did not specify a crime to be investigated and practically invites a fishing expedition."

DeSantis was a founding member of the Freedom Caucus, a group of congressional conservatives and libertarians.

2016 U.S. Senate Candidacy

On May 6, 2015, DeSantis declared his candidacy for the United States Senate seat held by Marco Rubio, who initially did not file to run for re-election due to his presidential campaign. The fiscally conservative Club for Growth endorsed him. DeSantis withdrew from the Senate race and ran for reelection to the House when Rubio ended his presidential campaign and ran for reelection to the Senate.

Governor of Florida


In January of 2018, DeSantis declared his candidacy to succeed term-limited Republican incumbent Rick Scott as governor of Florida. Trump stated in December 2017 that he would back DeSantis for governor if he ran. During the Republican primary, DeSantis emphasized his support for Trump by running an advertisement in which he taught his children how to say "Make America Great Again" and "Build the Wall" and dressed one of them in a red "Make America Great Again" jumper. When asked to identify an issue where he disagreed with Trump, DeSantis was unable to do so. On July 30, 2018, Jonathan Martin of The New York Times wrote that the support DeSantis' primary campaign received demonstrated both Trump's king-making ability in a Republican-trending state and a "broader nationalization of conservative politics" in which "a willingness to hurl rhetorical lightning bolts at the left, the media, and special counsel Robert S. Mueller can trump local credentials, local endorsements, and preparedness for a state-based job." 

The August 28, 2018 Republican primary was won by DeSantis. Andrew Gillum was his Democratic opponent in the general election. The race was "widely regarded as close." 

As his opponent was African-American, DeSantis was accused of using "monkey" as a racist dog whistle. The incident received extensive media coverage, and DeSantis denied that his remark was racially insensitive.

DeSantis announced state representative Jeanette Nez as his running mate in September 2018. On September 10, 2018, he resigned his House seat to focus on his gubernatorial campaign. In the same month, DeSantis was criticized for lacking a comprehensive policy platform. He canceled an interview with the Tampa Bay Times in order to have more time to develop a platform prior to a policy-focused interview. 

Florida Police Chiefs Association endorsed DeSantis for governor. During the campaign, some sheriffs supported DeSantis and others supported Gillum.
