Governor of Florida Ron DeSantis, though he says he’s focused on winning a second term in 2022, has not ruled out running for president in 2024.
Will Cain, one of the “Fox and Friends Weekend” hosts, asked DeSantis Sunday morning if he would throw his hat in the presidential ring. The governor laughed heartily and said, “We’ve got a great governor’s election in 2022, which will be very important for our state, and quite frankly I think […] it gives us the ability to keep the momentum going, so that’s what we’re focused on.”
“Focused on governorship, but is that ‘no’ for president?” Cain asked.
“That’s a ‘we have 2022 to worry about,'” replied DeSantis, thus leaving the door open for a possible 2024 candidacy.
The governor was seen Sunday night at the Super Bowl, which was played at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Tampa’s defense smothered the Chiefs all night and the offense took advantage of several Chiefs defensive penalties to cruise to a 31-9 victory.
DeSantis is quickly becoming a nationally recognized political figure and would be a prime candidate for president, particularly if Donald Trump decides not to run. But 2024 is still a ways away and a lot can happen between now and then.
Big League Politics recently covered Governor DeSantis’ speech on proposed legislation to combat Big Tech, which included a snipe at Twitter and the media over their treatment of the Hunter Biden story near the end of the 2020 election.
Matt Gaetz Reveals that President Trump “Acts, Talks and Schemes” Like He’s Running in 2024
Gaetz is referring to private conversations with the President.
Florida Republican Matt Gaetz suggested that President Donald Trump is inclined to running to regain the presidency in the 2024 election, referring to private conversations he’s had with Trump since the 45th President left office. Gaetz revealed that President Trump “acts and talks and plans and schemes with me like he is 1000% running again,” speaking in a Clubhouse room to hundreds of Trump supporters.
Gaetz is known to be close to President Trump, and previously suggested that a Trump 2024 campaign is a real possibility. If Trump were to run for the presidency in 2024 and win, he’d become the first US President to serve non-consecutive terms in office since Democrat Grover Cleveland, who served in the late 19th century. Trump would enter office for the second time at the age of 78; seasoned for a President, but equivalent to Joe Biden himself ascending to the presidential throne for the first time at the same age.
With most of the obvious Republican contenders for the presidency lacking Donald Trump’s political charisma and established track record of policy successes as President, it’s hard to imagine any contender defeating Trump in a GOP primary.
Trump has declined to make a decision on a 2024 campaign yet, openly stating that it’s far too early to consider announcing a comeback campaign in phone call appearances on Fox News. Currently, the President is planning to vet and endorse candidates to advance his brand of “Make America Great Again” Republicanism, suggesting he’s finally soured on the Republican establishment after his final months in office.
If the President declines to run, it’s expected that the Republican primary will be largely dominated by traditional conservatives, with rhetorical allusions to Trump’s ‘America First’ vision and policy adherence to traditional Reaganite ideas.
