There is no Republican elected official more hated by the Left than Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
Democrats fear DeSantis because he is wildly popular with GOP voters nationwide.
And Ronald Reagan’s campaign chairman just launched a massive petition drive to encourage Ron DeSantis to make one major decision.
Ron DeSantis rose to national stardom in the Republican Party during the pandemic for his willingness to stand up and fight back against Joe Biden and Anthony Fauci’s COVID tyranny.
But DeSantis’ battle against the Left didn’t end with the pandemic.
DeSantis took the lead on important issues such as removing Critical Race Theory from Florida’s schools, prohibiting the teaching of gender and sex to children in kindergarten through third grade, and banning biological males from participating in women’s sports.
He also signed legislation banning abortions after 15 weeks, strengthening election integrity, outlawing so-called sanctuary cities, and cracking down on the hiring of illegal aliens in the Sunshine State.
Polls now consistently show that if Donald Trump decides not to run for President in 2024, Ron DeSantis is the clear frontrunner for the GOP nomination.
At the recent Wisconsin Republican State Convention, Ron DeSantis emerged as the top choice for President in 2024 among the attendees, edging out Donald Trump by 4 percent.
But Ron DeSantis is facing his first re-election as Governor this fall.
And he maintains that his only focus is serving as Governor and winning election to another term.
But a long-time GOP campaign veteran is hoping to convince Ron DeSantis to run for President by collecting signatures from millions of Americans.
Ed Rollins, who served a Ronald Reagan’s 1984 Campaign Chairman and ran the pro-Trump Great America PAC in 2016 and 2020, just teamed up with Miami attorney Lilian Rodriquez-Baz to launch the “Ready for Ron” PAC.
Registered with the Federal Elections Committee, “Ready for Ron” PAC is raising money to purchase online advertisements to garner attention to the petition encouraging Ron DeSantis to run for President.
“America is in grave danger from the Radical Left and their failed, socialist, woke policies,” the petition reads. “The America-First agenda MUST be revived. Governor Ron DeSantis is the next Great American President – like Ronald Reagan and Donald Trump – who will turn our country around. We must organize NOW – we cannot wait and let the Left take another election. I am Ready for Ron! Let Ron know I’m behind him and want to join his team!”
During an interview with Fox News Digital, Rollins admitted that the GOP Primary field is “frozen” until Donald Trump makes his decision about running for President again in 2024.
“We think DeSantis is a very strong candidate. He would carry on a lot of the efforts of President Trump’s agenda,” Rollins told Fox News Digital.
Rollins, who is still a supporter of Donald Trump, said the efforts weren’t meant to cause division between the two, saying, “I don’t think they will run against each other.”
Donald Trump will likely decide whether or not he is running for President again after the November Midterm elections.
No one knows what his final decision will be.
But if he decides not to run again, Ron DeSantis will have a strong foundation and network of supporters right from the get-go.
