Ron DeSantis may be missing his moment.
A number of the Florida governor’s donors and allies are worried his recent stumbles suggest he may not be ready for a brutal fight against Donald Trump. Some feel DeSantis needs to accelerate his timeline to run for the GOP presidential nomination and begin directly confronting Trump if he's to have any chance of thwarting the former president’s momentum. Others believe DeSantis should sidestep Trump altogether and wait until 2028 to run.
“They liked him — many of them might even support him,” the person who was at the event said of DeSantis. “But they thought on balance that his long-term future was better without him trying to take Trump head on.”
At a Sunday luncheon following the annual Red Cross ball in Palm Beach, Florida, a group of 16 prominent Republicans, described by one attendee as a mix of DeSantis backers and Trump "skeptics," discussed misgivings about the governor's standing for the future if he tussles with the former president.

Anyone believe NBC news?
4 Marxists to write this trash.
DeSantis needs to COME CLEAN regarding Ukraine, for starters. Why did he do one of the fastest flips on a major issue that I can remember? For me, for the future (forget 2024), I’d like to know who was telling him to do what, as no one flips like that unless there are voices demanding he flip.
NBC NEWS: DeSantis donors are beginning to question if he is ready for 2024, considering Tim Scott.— David D. Chapman (@davidchapman141) March 25, 2023
So all it took was one month of fairly mild treatment from The Donald & DeSeoros folded like wet cardboard?
And no personality RINO Scott will excite the base?
These people truly are clueless.@Peoples_Pundit https://t.co/P6gF9pGQK8— Larry Schweikart (@LarrySchweikart) March 25, 2023
Glad to see you are agreeing with Nbc.
Rove became the prime political adviser to DeSantis. Very bad advice. DeSantis was in an excellent position to become VP in 2024 and President in 2028. He had the opportunity to make history with Trump by restoring the American nation and saving it from the lunatic globalists who wish to destroy it. Not only will DeSantis never achieve those offices but his impatient petulance has aided the globalists and more harm will come to the American nation.
They are scared of him. They always let you know who they fear.
I believe NBC News is prodding DeSantis.
Are you unable to see what NBC News is ddoing? SMH
It is so telling when it takes four people to write a tale that has no substance. Eeeesh.
Tallahassee Ron willingly walked into a setup laid out by the GOPe. Hubris, arrogance and envy led him in.
The Bushies don’t want a MAGA guy, even a moderate MAGA guy like Ron D.
They set him up, and now have taken him out.
Ron now has NO chance at POTUS.
Our PDJT the GOAT is the answer.
All y’all Ronnie D gangsters best get on board.
Roll MAGA, roll!
Yeah, they are tearing him down.
“Glad to see you are agreeing with Nbc.”
Yep, even a stuck clock gets it right, once in a great while.
If a movement is 5hat tied to one man it will die.
