Ron DeSantis is one of the top contenders to win the White House in 2024.
But will he pull the trigger and actually run for President?
Now Ron DeSantis just received one bombshell letter that will change his life forever.
Polls show Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and former President Donald Trump are far outpacing every other Republican who could potentially run for President in 2024.
Trump served as President and still retains a strong base of support within the Republican Party.
But after the Midterm elections, conservatives began to consider alternatives.
The much-hyped “Red Wave” never materialized, considering his endorsed candidates went 2-16 in winnable state-wide races in key battleground states.
Trump-endorsed candidates losing in battleground states stood in stark contrast to Governor DeSantis’ massive 19-point landslide re-election victory in which he led Republicans to win 62 of Florida’s 67 counties, including becoming the first Republican Gubernatorial candidate to win Miami-Dade County in two decades.
Such a win certainly caught the attention of many conservatives, causing DeSantis’ support to skyrocket nationwide.
In fact, one of the top Republicans in the key battleground state of Michigan even went out of his way to travel to Florida to hand-deliver a letter to the Governor urging him to run for President in 2024.
“A group of prominent Michigan Republicans are encouraging Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis to jump into the 2024 presidential race — a significant and thinly veiled shot at the only announced Republican candidate: former President Donald Trump,” POLITICO reported. “Last month, Bryan Posthumus, the Republican floor leader in the Michigan state House, flew to Florida and hand-delivered DeSantis a letter encouraging him to run for president.”
“The letter — which was signed by 18 Republican members of the state House, one quarter of party’s caucus — called DeSantis “uniquely and exceptionally qualified to provide the leadership and competence that is, unfortunately, missing” in the White House under President Joe Biden, according to excerpts provided by a Posthumus spokesperson,” the report continued. “The signers also say they “stand ready and willing to help [DeSantis] win Michigan in 2024.”
DeSantis initially won Florida’s Governorship by roughly 30,000 votes in 2018, and his massive margin of victory in 2022 stood out.
That’s because the Governor refused to moderate or move to the middle.
Instead, Governor DeSantis doubled down on fighting the Left on COVID and in the culture wars.
But he didn’t just fight.
DeSantis won real policy victories – something Republican aren’t used to seeing – like stripping the Walt Disney Company of its tax and governance special privileges after the corporation opposed a bill banning teachers from grooming children into transgenderism.
When President Biden supported mask mandates and tried to force the COVID vaccine on 80 million Americans, Governor DeSantis banned mask mandates in schools and vaccine passports.
It is not clear who the GOP’s nominee will be in 2024.
But what is clear is that Donald Trump will not have a cake walk to the General Election.
