Ron DeSantis just laughed off a reporter’s question about this major decision with these five words

Feb 17, 2023

Florida’s popular Governor recently held a news conference.

He was asked numerous questions – including one that everyone wants to know.

But DeSantis just laughed off a reporter’s question about this major decision with these five words.

It’s no secret that the 2024 elections are already heating up.

Just this week, former South Carolina RINO Governor Nikki Haley announced her plan to run.

“Wouldn’t you like to know?”

But at least one potential candidate is remaining quiet about his plans.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis laughed off a question about announcing his run for President in 2024.

“Wouldn’t you like to know?” DeSantis responded, while laughing. 

The crowd erupted in laughter at his non-response response.

DeSantis was asked the question at a Jacksonville news conference held to discuss transforming the legal system to better protect children from books containing inappropriate topics.

DeSantis has kept his cards close to the vest on a potential 2024 run focusing instead on his job as Florida Governor.

This is despite the fact DeSantis remains the only Republican who even comes close to knocking Trump out of the race.

DeSantis is a favorite among GOP activists in the 2024 Presidential nomination contest.

It’s a race between DeSantis and Trump 

In a recent Wall Street Journal poll about a hypothetical 2024 race DeSantis beat Trump 52% to 38%.

The poll also showed that former President Donald Trump is slowly losing support among Republicans, but that he still soundly beats anyone except DeSantis.

If DeSantis does run for President in 2024, he won’t be facing just Donald Trump.

Former South Carolina Republican Governor Nikki Haley has already announced her candidacy breaking her promise to never run against Donald Trump.

While Haley is not expected to garner more than 10%, she is just one of many GOP potential candidates and is actually angling for a potential Vice President slot.

A crowded field

While Haley’s announcement makes her the first official rival to challenge Trump, there are at least 13 others considering jumping into the race.

They include former Governors like Maryland’s Larry Hogan, Arkansas’ Asa Hutchinson, and former New Jersey Governor and one-time Trump confidante Chris Christie.

There are also current Governors considering a run like Virginia’s RINO Governor Glenn Youngkin and South Dakota’s more conservative Governor Kristi Noem, as well as Texas Governor Greg Abbott and New Hampshire’s Chris Sununu.

South Carolina’s Tim Scott is being widely talked about.

There are also a number of former Trump officials including Vice President Mike Pence and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

And of course, there is always the Never-Trump fanatic and former RINO Congresswoman Liz Cheney.

But as it stands right now, none of those potential challengers can break 10% support, with most of them coming in under 1%.

It’s still early

While right now Haley is the only official candidate challenging Trump, it is still very early in the game.

But the nomination process is still in its early stages, and it could take months before the field fully fills up and candidates make more than occasional visits to early primary and caucus states like Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, and South Carolina. 

Haley could remain alone for weeks or even months to come as the party’s only official opponent to former President Donald Trump.

And if DeSantis continues to stay mum on his decision, there may not be a real challenger who can actually beat Trump until DeSantis announces.

For now America’s Governor is just smiling and laughing his way into conservative hearts and minds by taking on the Left – and winning.
