Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is one of the most talked about 2024 Presidential prospects.
That’s true on both the Left and the Right.
And this Ron DeSantis 2024 announcement left Joe Biden speechless.
GOP strategist John Thomas helped start the Ron to the Rescue PAC to promote a potential 2024 DeSantis Presidential candidacy.
Thomas told Business Insider that big money donors – including police unions – donated six-figures to the PAC to get the operation off the ground.
“Not only are my original donors thrilled and jazzed to start cutting checks, but I’ve received some calls from very large law-enforcement unions that are going to throw in six figures to start, and lend me their name and credibility in the ads,” Thomas told Business Insider. “There are public safety leaders that are longing for DeSantis’ leadership on crime and immigration. Some very large police groups.”
Ron to the Rescue PAC is already running ads in the key early voting state of Iowa.

But Ron DeSantis’ team threw cold water on this effort.
DeSantis’ legal counsel Benjamin Gibson drafted a letter making it clear that DeSantis has no involvement with this PAC.
“Whether well intentioned or not, the organizers of these PACs have not been in contact with DeSantis leadership and such efforts may create confusion amongst supporters of the Governor and his policies,” Gibson wrote.
“It is important to make clear to supporters that Governor DeSantis and his team are not affiliated with the ‘Ron to the Rescue’ PAC, have not authorized it to conduct any activity on their behalf, and contributions made to the ‘Ron to the Rescue’ PAC will not benefit Governor DeSantis or his agenda,” Gibson continued.
New polling data shows why Republicans are so excited about a DeSantis 2024 run and why Joe Biden and the Democrats are so panicked.
Coming off the heels of a landslide 19-point re-election, a new GQR Research poll showed DeSantis leading Joe Biden 49 to 45 percent in a potential 2024 matchup.
But will Ron DeSantis pull the trigger on a 2024 run?
That question remains to be answered.
