Ron DeSantis Responds to 2024 Speculation

Ron DeSantis Responds to 2024 Speculation

(TargetLiberty.org) – Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is playing it close to his chest on the subject of the 2024 election campaign. Is he considering being Donald Trump’s running mate? If he is, he’s not saying.

On June 13, DeSantis told reporters that he’s had no discussions with the former president – or anyone else – about making a run at the White House in 2024. Some Republicans are speculating that DeSantis, who’s rapidly making a name for himself with effective campaigns against critical race theory and COVID authoritarianism, is positioning himself for a spot on the next presidential ticket.

On Sunday, DeSantis stressed that he’s busy governing Florida, where he said his team is “putting a lot of points on the board,” and is on the offensive working to “move the ball forward.” However, he’s also hinted recently that he’s “only begun to fight” and that he’s building a formidable fundraising machine. He might not be confirming anything now, but if he does decide to put his name forward, he’s already done a lot of the groundwork.
