DeSantis 2024? How Florida’s governor is positioned as Trumpism heir

By Shannon Longworth

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is emerging as the next GOP darling and Trumpism heir. As the 2024 presidential race looms, speculation swirls around whether DeSantis will run as Trump’s vice president or for his own seat in the Oval Office.

THIS GOVERNOR IS HANGING OUT IN PRESIDENT TRUMP’S SHADOW RIGHT NOW—AND NOT JUST BECAUSE HE’S FROM THE SUNSHINE STATE.

IF THERE’S JUST ONE NAME YOU NEED TO KNOW TODAY, IT’S FLORIDA GOVERNOR RON DESANTIS.

THE REPUBLICAN GOVERNOR IS ONE OF THE HOTTEST NAMES IN THE 2024 PRESIDENTIAL RACE.

YES, WE’RE TALKING ABOUT THAT ALREADY.

MANY ARE EXPECTING HIM TO EITHER RUN FOR PRESIDENT OR BE A PICK FOR VP.

SO, OPTION 1: SAY FORMER PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP RUNS AGAIN. 

DESANTIS COULD VERY WELL BE HIS NUMBER TWO. AFTER ALL, THEY’RE PRETTY TIGHT.

TRUMP ENDORSED DESANTIS DURING HIS RUN FOR GOVERNOR IN 2018…AND THEY’VE BEEN TIED TOGETHER EVER SINCE.

OPTION 2 FOR DESANTIS: HE MIGHT WANT THE OVAL FOR HIMSELF.

THERE’S PLENTY OF SPECULATION FROM WITHIN THE GOP…AND OUTSIDE IT…SUPPORTING THAT POSSIBILITY.

SO WHETHER HE RUNS FOR PRESIDENT OR VYING FOR VP…

DESANTIS COULD VERY WELL BE THE HEIR TO TRUMPISM IN THE COMING YEARS.

AND IF YOU’RE WONDERING WHAT TRUMPISM IS, CHECK OUT THE LINK BELOW.

DESANTIS CATERS WELL TO TRUMP SUPPORTERS, AND PUSHES BACK ON SOCIAL JUSTICE WARRIORS. 

RECENTLY, HE SIGNED ANTI-RIOT LEGISLATION IN RESPONSE TO BLM PROTESTS.

AND WHEN IT COMES TO COVID, HE WAS ONE OF THE FIRST TO RE-OPEN BUSINESSES AND REFUSE A STATEWIDE MASK MANDATE.

NOW, HE’S LEADING THE CHARGE TO REOPEN FULLY—AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

SO, THERE YOU HAVE A HAVE IT.

A GOVERNOR WHO MAY VERY WELL RIDE TRUMP’S COATTAILS INTO THE FLORIDA SUNSET.

RON DESANTIS—JUST ONE NAME TO KEEP AN EYE ON AS WE GET CLOSER TO PRIMARY SEASON.
