Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton do not have much in common with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and they disagree with him on virtually every issue.
But one commonality they do share is that all three are published authors.
And Ron DeSantis just topped Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama on one list that has Democrats on edge about 2024.
Ron DeSantis is the most popular Republican elected official in the country and is considered a top contender for the 2024 GOP nomination.
DeSantis entered the national scene during the pandemic when he reopened Florida and banned masks and vaccine mandates in the Sunshine State.
DeSantis’ bold stand and refusal to back down in the face of attacks made him a rock star in the Republican Party.
Ever since, DeSantis has only grown more popular as he continues to take on battles – like fighting the woke Left – that Republicans shied away from for years.
After his 19-point landslide re-election victory in November, conservatives all across the country began calling on him to run for President in 2024.
Although DeSantis is keeping his plans to himself, the anticipation is growing around his announcement as he continues to make moves that would indicate a future White House bid.
The Florida Governor visited Iowa on Friday after previously touring Pennsylvania, New York, Illinois, Alabama, California, and several other states around the country.
But one of the most telling signs DeSantis is planning to run for President was when he released his memoir last week, The Courage To Be Free: Florida’s Blueprint for America’s Revival.
DeSantis’ book topped The New York Times bestseller list for print and e-book nonfiction and also hit the number-one spot for most-purchased book on Amazon Charts.
But the Florida Governor’s book also sold more copies in its first week than Hillary Clinton’s, Barack Obama’s, or Donald Trump’s book during their first week of publication.
According to a report from Business Insider, DeSantis’ memoir “sold 94,300 copies in its first week, according to NPD BookScan, which tracks retail sales of US print books. The numbers go up to March 4 and include pre-orders but not e-books that people download onto their Kindles or other electronic devices.”
In comparison, Hillary Clinton sold 86,200 copies of her book, Hard Choices, in its first week of publication in 2016.
Barack Obama’s memoir, The Audacity of Hope, only sold 67,500 copies in its first week of sales.
And Donald Trump’s 2015 campaign book, Crippled America, sold 27,687 copies during its first week.
DeSantis’ book covers important moments of his life, including being raised by a working-class family, serving in the Navy and deploying to Iraq after 9/11, and discusses his important battles against COVID tyranny, CRT, and woke nonsense.
“What Florida has done is establish a blueprint for governance that has produced tangible results while serving as a rebuke to the entrenched elites who have driven our nation into the ground,” DeSantis wrote. “Florida is proof positive that we, the people, are not powerless in the face of these elites.”
DeSantis selling more books than Obama and Clinton has Democrats worried about facing the Governor in 2024.
