    According to Ed Rollins, the campaign strategist behind the 1984 Reagan reelection who’s now working with a DeSantis PAC, it’s increasingly looking like a Trump 2024 presidential run is sure to happen.Speaking on that, Rollins was quoted by the Epoch Times as saying, as of June 14th:“The information that I’ve gotten the last several weeks is Trump is definitely running”That could be wrong, however, as it is not congruent with what he said in a pro-DeSantis fundraising email on June 10th. In that email, he said:“Donald Trump is not running, that’s why we have to prepare for Ron DeSantis running...

    Even though former President Donald Trump has yet to officially announce his 2024 presidential candidacy, he still dominates the GOP as a kingmaker and the most recognizable name in Republican politics. With Trump in the race for the GOP nomination, he receives a majority (54%) of votes from Republican primary voters, which is four to one more than the next most popular candidate, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (12%), with former Vice President Mike Pence nipping at DeSantis' heels with 10%.No other candidate received support within the margin in the error, including Senators Ted Cruz-TX (4%) and Marco Rubio-FL (3%), former...

    Donald Trump has shared a poll indicating he would comprehensively beat Ron DeSantis for the 2024 Republican nomination for president amid continuing speculation the Florida governor is planning on announcing his candidacy. The former president shared the results of a recent Zogby Poll on Truth Social on Wednesday that indicated that he is still an overwhelming favorite to clinch the Republican nomination should he choose to run. The survey shows Trump has the backing of nearly 54 percent of votes from Republican primary voters—just under five times the amount that second place DeSantis received (11.5 percent).
  • Ron DeSantis' Immigration Crackdown Could Prove Costly

    Last week, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis signed legislation and announced new actions related to immigration enforcement in the state. Among them is a policy that could impose a hefty financial burden on state taxpayers and reduce community trust toward police. S.B. 1808 requires each law enforcement agency in Florida that operates a county detention facility to enter into an agreement with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Under a so-called 287(g) agreement, state and local law enforcement officers are deputized by the Department of Homeland Security to carry out duties typically performed by federal agents. Those officers may interview people about...

    A public opinion survey in New Hampshire, the state that for a century has held the first primary in presidential race, indicates that Florida Gov. Gov. Ron DeSantis has a razor-thin margin over former President Donald Trump in a hypothetical 2024 GOP primary match-up. According to polling numbers released on Wednesday by the University of New Hampshire Survey Center, 39% of likely Republican primary voters in the Granite State would support the first-term Florida governor, with 37% backing the former president. Respondents were provided a list of potential contenders for the 2024 GOP presidential nomination, and DeSantis margin was well...

    I voted for Trump twice, and I’m a lawyer and I played a small role in his challenge to the results. My question for this board is: why shouldn’t we pick a winner? Trump lost. He lost the election and he lost, pathetically, in the post-election challenges. He lost those legal challenges before Trump-appointed judges as well Bush appointees, Obama appointees, and Clinton appointees. He’s persuaded 40-something percent of the country but not matter what he does, he cannot – can not – persuade more people. He has not done so and will not do so. It may suck, but...

    Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is expected to sign a bill to grant places of worship the right to keep doors open during a state of emergency. Florida bill SB 254, which passed the Senate in January, would officially designate religious services as being essential and therefore allow houses of worship, including churches, to remain open and host public gatherings in the event of a public emergency or disaster. The governor received the bill last Friday and has until June 30 to act on it. “An emergency order authorized by this part may not directly or indirectly prohibit religious services or...

    Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has picked another fight with progressive corporate America, this time the Tampa Bay Rays baseball team. When he signed the state budget last week, Mr. DeSantis zeroed out $35 million to help build a new site for the Rays’ spring training. “I don’t support giving taxpayer dollars to professional sports stadiums, period,” he said Friday. This is a good policy that too few states emulate, and Florida taxpayers can be grateful that their Governor has a line-item veto and is willing to use it

The pledge specifically says the candidate will, “Reject lockdowns, increase teacher pay, and reject critical race theory.”

    Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis called out the relationship between Big Pharma and federal regulatory agencies at a press conference on Monday where he announced there will not be any state-pushed mRNA vaccination programs for 6-month old babies. "What this whole year and a half has shown us is these regulatory agencies in the federal government have basically become subsidiaries of the pharmaceutical companies," DeSantis said.

    President Joe Biden issued a veiled criticism of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis Tuesday while touting the COVID-19 vaccines newly available to young children. Children as young as 6 months old began receiving COVID-19 shots on Tuesday. Biden boasted about his administration’s extensive road map for getting shots in children's arms while visiting a Washington, D.C., vaccination site, where he met with parents and young children. The federal government has already made 10 million doses of Pfizer-BioNTech's and Moderna’s pediatric vaccines available to states for preorder, but Florida opted out. DeSantis, who often casts himself as a foil to Biden, declared...

    Florida Governor Ron DeSantis on Monday clarified his government’s stance on babies receiving COVID-19 vaccines, stating that “there’s no proven benefit” for the controversial injections to be used in infants. DeSantis slammed the “legacy media” and the Biden administration over their support for COVID-19 vaccines being administered to children. They came out with an article saying ‘the state of Florida has not ordered, it’s department of health has not ordered mRNA jabs for the babies,'” said DeSantis. “Yes. We didn’t. We recommend against it.” We are not going to have any programs where we are trying to jab six month...

    This part of the New Yorker‘s profile of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is saying the quiet part out loud: For decades, the Democratic Party had commanded a majority of Florida’s registered voters. But the state was changing, as Trump’s election helped energize a shift in political affinities. The Republican Party’s rank and file became increasingly radical, and G.O.P. leaders appeared only too happy to follow them. “There was always an element of the Republican Party that was batshit crazy,” Mac Stipanovich, the chief of staff to Governor Bob Martinez, a moderate Republican, told me. “They had lots of different names—they...

    President Donald Trump recently issued his fourth official statement about me since our controversial interview two months ago. At the risk of further incurring his wrath, if anyone is drawing flies right now, it’s Donald Trump. If you were scripting a perfect Republican presidential candidate, the list of preferred requirements would read something like DeSantis’s resume.

    The Republican Party of Florida gave the nation a “little taste of Florida freedom” last Saturday at a wildly successful “first in the nation” flotilla to honor Gov. Ron DeSantis (R), Christian Ziegler, vice chairman of the Republican Party of Florida, told Breitbart News during the event. Roughly 1,300 boats registered for the event as individuals donned their vessels with patriotic flags, making their way down the St. Johns River in Jacksonville, Florida. Even more supporters and party officials participated in the show of support aboard the USS Orleck, docked along the river in downtown Jacksonville.

    Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis staked his claim Thursday as the first governor in America not to provide state support for vaccinating younger kids against COVID-19. DeSantis stressed at an event Thursday that parents can still vaccinate their young children. Even though the state will not be working with the federal government to distribute the vaccine, that doesn’t mean it is banned, according to DeSantis. “You are free to choose — that’s not the issue,” he said.
