WASHINGTON — Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, a 2024 Republican presidential candidate, had a message for three conservative House Republicans in a phone call Wednesday: stick to their guns even in the face of a looming government shutdown.

Rep. Bob Good, R-Va., a member of the ultra-conservative House Freedom Caucus, confirmed to USA TODAY Thursday the call took place with two of his Republican colleagues, Reps. Thomas Massie of Kentucky and Chip Roy of Texas. Politico first reported the phone call.

"We talked about what was going on in the House and about the appropriations fight and what our positions were on how to try to navigate the best path forward," Good told USA TODAY Thursday.
