Ron DeSantis is wildly popular with Republican voters nationwide.
He’s the only Republican with a real chance at competing with Donald Trump for the 2024 GOP nomination.
And Donald Trump just got news from Ron DeSantis that was music to his ears.
Ron DeSantis is a rising star among conservatives for his leadership during the coronavirus pandemic.
Not only did DeSantis keep Florida open for business, but he also rejected Biden and Fauci’s mask and vaccine mandates.
DeSantis also called out the Biden administration for creating the massive illegal immigration crisis at the southern border and the skyrocketing inflation and supply-chain shortages facing our already struggling economy.
Because of his willingness to stand and fight on virtually every issue that matters to conservatives, Ron DeSantis is wildly popular with Republicans nationwide.
And DeSantis’ rising popularity has many wondering if he will run for President in 2024.
But despite DeSantis’ growing popularity, poll after poll still shows Donald Trump far outpaces all other Republicans, including DeSantis, in a hypothetical 2024 Republican Presidential Primary race.
Of course, Donald Trump and Ron DeSantis are friends and close political allies.
In fact, Donald Trump’s endorsement of DeSantis during the 2018 Gubernatorial Primary is what compelled him to victory that November.
Ron DeSantis is up for re-election in 2022.
And on Friday, DeSantis officially filed the paperwork required to run for re-election for Governor of Florida.
“We’re not going to be doing really anything in terms of public announcements ‘till after the legislative session, but you know, you got to prepare for these things,” DeSantis responded when a reporter asked him why he didn’t formally announce his re-election campaign.
DeSantis is referring to the special session of the legislature he called to order next week to pass laws protecting Floridians from Joe Biden’s vaccine and mask mandates.
No one really knows whether or not DeSantis is planning to run for President in 2024.
As DeSantis told Fox News’ Sean Hannity, right now he’s “not considering anything beyond doing my job,” which is serving the people of Florida as Governor.
DeSantis running for Governor in 2022 could be received by Trump as great news that he won’t have to run against a fellow strong conservative in a potential 2024 Presidential election run.
