Donald Trump is the only major Republican candidate to officially enter the 2024 Presidential race.
Nikki Haley will announce her campaign on Wednesday and become the second Republican to enter the field.
And now a top Republican operative in Florida just told the press three words about Ron DeSantis running for President that left Democrats on edge.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis was already a rock star in the Republican Party before last November’s Midterm elections.
DeSantis rose to stardom over his willingness to stand up and fight for conservative values.
He protected Floridians from pandemic tyranny, restored parental rights, and waged war against the Left’s woke ideology.
But DeSantis’ 19-point landslide re-election victory in the Midterm elections turned him from a wildly popular Governor to a top contender for the GOP nomination in 2024.
However, the Governor is keeping his plans for 2024 close to his chest, instead saying his top focus is on serving the people of Florida and defending their freedoms.
But conservative leaders and grassroots Republicans from across the country are starting to line up behind DeSantis.
Ready for Ron PAC filed paperwork with the Federal Election Commission and declared its intent to spend more than $3 million on television advertising, phone, mail, and digital promotion through late June promoting DeSantis for President in 2024.
Even though DeSantis is keeping his decision close to his chest, rumors are starting to leak out to the press about his plans for 2024.
“Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is on the cusp of making a final decision on a 2024 presidential run,” The Hill reported. “Several Republicans familiar with the deliberations say that DeSantis is almost certain to seek the GOP’s presidential nomination,” The Hill continued, before adding that “his advisers have begun reaching out to and interviewing potential hires for a campaign and are gaming out the best time to announce his intentions.”
The timing of DeSantis’ announcement is expected to be sometime after the state legislature finishes its regular session in May.
“I think his mind is pretty much made up at this point,” one Republican operative with close ties to DeSantis said. “My read on it is: Let’s get through the session, get some stuff done and see where things stand.”
The operative added that “unless something changes drastically between now and then, I’d say he’s a go.”
Another GOP operative close to DeSantis told The Hill that “he needs to seize the opportunity now because who knows what things will look like down the road.”
“He has the momentum now,” they added.
All eyes are on Ron DeSantis, as many believe he is the only Republican who could defeat Donald Trump.
But since the first Presidential nominating contest is still a year away, DeSantis is wise to take his time and focus on serving the people of Florida right now.
