This was the moment Republicans have been waiting on for months.
Ron DeSantis finally launched his Presidential campaign.
And the Chairman of the Florida GOP revealed why conservatives should be excited about the looming battle between Ron DeSantis and Donald Trump.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and former President Donald Trump are the two most popular Republicans in the country.
Republican voters like how Trump and DeSantis are both willing to go toe-to-toe with left-wing activists in the press.
They also appreciate their willingness to fight for conservative policies even if it means taking on members of their own Party.
Their courage to take on the press and the establishment originally made DeSantis and Trump conservative allies in the Republican Party.
But that all changed for Trump when he found out DeSantis was planning a Presidential bid against him in 2024.
Trump started attacking DeSantis before the Midterm elections and has only ramped up his war against the Governor.
Now that DeSantis is officially in the race, Republicans are bracing for a brutal and vicious Primary battle between them for the GOP nomination.
However, many Republicans are concerned that a brutal war between Trump and DeSantis – who should be conservative allies – could bruise the eventual nominee enough to hand Democrats four more years in the White House.
But Republican Party of Florida Chairman Christian Ziegler found a silver lining for conservatives in the looming fight between DeSantis and Trump.
“Something we should ALL be able to agree with: In 2024, the two leading contenders for the Republican Nomination for President are: Donald J. Trump [and] Ron DeSantis,” Ziegler wrote on Twitter. “HUGE IMPROVEMENT from 2008 when we were forced to pick between: John McCain and Mitt Romney.”
Something we should ALL be able to agree with:
In 2024, the two leading contenders for the Republican Nomination for President are:
🇺🇸 Donald J. Trump
🇺🇸 Ron DeSantis
HUGE IMPROVEMENT from 2008 when we were forced to pick between:
▶️ John McCain
▶️ Mitt Romney

Ziegler does make an excellent point that conservatives should find encouraging.
The fact that the two leading powerhouses are conservatives shows that America First Republicans are making a difference in the fight.
In the past, Republicans would have been guaranteed a choice in November between two peas in the same pod.
Whether it’s Donald Trump or Ron DeSantis, in 2024 Republicans can be certain that the nominee will be a conservative fighter instead of an establishment, Mitt Romney-style RINO.
And as Ziegler pointed out, that is a “HUGE IMPROVEMENT.”
