Two protesters briefly disrupted Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis as he was delivering a speech at the New Hampshire GOP’s fundraising dinner on Friday.
The two individuals who interrupted the Republican’s speech seemed to be yelling “Jews against DeSantis” as they were removed from the stage.
“You gotta have a little spice in the speech right?” DeSantis said, adding, “you gotta have a little fun.”
“Why you’d wanna pay the ticket to get in just to do that, I don’t know, but different strokes for different folks,” he added.
“IfNotNow members are confronting Ron DeSantis at a GOP fundraiser in New Hampshire this evening,” the IfNotNow movement tweeted. “We’re making clear that DeSantis is an antisemite whose actions and policies both support Israeli apartheid and put Jews in danger.”
DeSantis, who sailed to re-election last year, is widely viewed as someone who may jump into the GOP presidential race, a move that would mean challenging former President Donald Trump, who has been taking shots at the governor.
Republican Reps. Chip Roy of Texas and Thomas Massie of Kentucky have both endorsed DeSantis for president, even though the governor has not thrown his hat into the ring.
So far, in addition to Trump, former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, former Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson, and author and entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy have announced White House bids, but others may jump into the primary race in the coming months.
The first GOP primary debate will be held in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, in August.
