Iowa is a key battleground state in the GOP Presidential Primary.
Polls show Donald Trump currently enjoys a massive lead over the rest of the field in Iowa.
But Donald Trump is pacing the floor after Ron DeSantis just hit a major milestone in Iowa.
The 2024 Republican Presidential Primary battle kicks off with the Iowa Caucuses on January 15.
Multiple polls show Donald Trump is currently dominating the field in Iowa.
A recently released survey conducted by the Daily Mail showed Trump with a 26-point lead over second place Ron DeSantis.
But there is a silver lining in the polls for Ron DeSantis.
Even though Trump enjoys a comfortable lead, DeSantis fares best against him in a head-to-head matchup.
“This primary is a two-man race between Governor DeSantis and a man running in 2024 on the things he promised to do in 2016 and failed to do,” DeSantis campaign press secretary Bryan Griffin said. “Governor DeSantis is the only candidate in the race who can beat Joe Biden and implement the agenda we need to reverse this country’s decline and revive its future.”
Ron DeSantis is fresh off a campaign reboot that included staff layoffs and a new Campaign Manager.
As part of his reboot, DeSantis adopted a new strategy that focuses the majority of his campaign’s resources on the early states of Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Nevada.
Of the four early states, Iowa is the top priority for DeSantis.
DeSantis has already made several visits to the Hawkeye State since he entered the Presidential race in May.
Never Back Down, the Super PAC supporting DeSantis, has hosted 17 bus tour events for him in Iowa over the past several weeks.
They also have 21 staff members on the ground in Iowa.
“The group has 21 staff members working in Iowa, and an official with Never Back Down told POLITICO the super PAC has knocked 236,615 doors here, ultimately holding 69,537 conversations,” POLITICO reported.
The Florida Governor was back in Iowa on Thursday for a four-day swing through the state that included a “fair-side chat” on Saturday at the Iowa State Fair with Governor Reynolds.
And DeSantis’ hard work in Iowa is paying off.
On Friday, DeSantis announced that his campaign had reached a major milestone in Iowa “with a chairperson backing his campaign in every part of the state.”
“Never Back Down, the super PAC supporting the Florida governor’s presidential bid, has established 120 county-level chairs across the state, with at least one in each of the 99 counties,” POLITICO reported. “The chair group includes Appanoose County Sheriff Gary Anderson, former state Sen. Mark Chelgren and Clayton Ohrt, the Buchanan County supervisor, along with other GOP activists.”
Never Back Down has received “commitment cards from over 10,400 people in the state — Republicans pledging to caucus for the governor on Jan. 15.”
Ron DeSantis understands that the Presidential Primary is a marathon, not a sprint.
He is focused on winning the race in January when it counts.
