If Conservative States Band Together on Pension Fund Use, They Can 'Check a Lot of These ESG Votes'

On Wednesday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) argued that conservative states should join together to form a block vote restricting the use of ESG in their state pension fund investments so they can use their large combined resources to “check a lot of these ESG votes that are going on throughout corporate America.”

DeSantis stated, [relevant remarks begin around 3:00] “I think that you’re going to see some other states do what Florida [is doing], and then what I’d like to do is get a lot of the conservative states together and let’s get our proxy voting rights on all of our funds, let’s combine those and vote as a block. Tucker, we’d have over a trillion dollars in assets between just the red states. That would make a difference when you’re talking about that so we would be able to check a lot of these ESG votes that are going on throughout corporate America. So, I would urge all of my fellow governors around the country…Republican or Democrat, let’s band together and let’s fight back against this so we can keep power to the people.”
