    Governor Ron DeSantis on Friday directed the Florida Department of Education to suspend four schools from the state’s school-choice scholarship program because of their alleged “direct ties to the Chinese Communist Party.” “Through a thorough investigation, FDOE has determined that Lower and Upper Sagemont Preparatory Schools in Weston, Parke House Academy in Winter Park, and Park Maitland School in Winter Park have direct ties to the CCP and their connections constitute an imminent threat to the health, safety, and welfare of these school’s students and the public,” the DeSantis administration said in a statement. The Florida DOE is working with...

    Ron DeSantis has replaced his campaign manager Generra Peck, in what is the third major reshuffling of his operations, a campaign spokesperson and a person familiar with the move confirmed to POLITICO. Peck will be shifted to a role of chief strategist as part of the new order. Taking her place atop the campaign will be James Uthmeier, who has served as chief of staff in DeSantis’ governor’s office.

    LET'S TALK ABOUT DESANTIS STATEMENT THAT BIDEN WON THE ELECTION: THE PREMISE: DeSantis set the premise by saying this: "Whoever puts their hand on the Bible on Jan. 20 every four years is the winner," DeSantis told NBC News correspondent Dasha Burns. So, in essence DeSantis is saying that according to our form of government, whoever is certified by Congress as the winner and takes the oath of office is the winner. This is simply a matter of fact. Biden was certified and took the oath, Biden was the winner. DESANTIS BLAMES TRUMP: However, DeSantis then went on to say...

    This strategy could be hit or miss for the Florida Republican, according to political strategists and pollsters. While some praised the idea as a smart move in an unusual media environment, others dismissed it as desperate. According to Republican strategist Ron Bonjean, this is "a smart strategy to impress voters" but only so long as "he can prove that he is effective at scoring points against a leading Democratic player." Fellow GOP strategist David Kochel agreed, noting, "The new Trump indictment sucks up all the oxygen, and I think anything these campaigns can do to gain some of the market...

    Tech entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy is gaining ground in the Republican presidential primary election with a recent poll showing him breaking into double-digit numbers as he closes in on Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis for second place behind former President Donald Trump. While Gov. Ron DeSantis' poll numbers are falling, Ramaswamy's popularity is increasing among voters, with an Echelon Insights poll finding that Ramaswamy improved his poll numbers by 2 percent, while DeSantis' numbers saw a 3 percent decrease. Donald Trump, who is the 2024 Republican presidential frontrunner, has a dominating lead over all Republican challengers with data showing him polling at...

    Governor Ron DeSantis’ campaign team released a wild culture war ad on Friday taking aim at former President Trump as Pride Month ends, using clips from “American Psycho” and “The Wolf of Wall Street” to hammer home the Florida firebrand’s leadership on issues. “To wrap up ‘Pride Month,’ let’s hear from the politician who did more than any other Republican to celebrate it…” the DeSantis War Room tweeted with a compilation of clips showing Trump’s ties to the LGBTQ and transgender community. The video begins with a 2016 clip of Trump telling the Republican National Convention, “I will do everything...

    Over one-quarter of Republican voters – 27 percent – will not consider voting for Governor of Florida Ron DeSantis in the upcoming Republican presidential nomination race. Comparably, just 14 percent of Republican voters say they would not consider supporting Donald J. Trump.The data comes from CBS and YouGov, and sampled a hefty 2,480 U.S. adults between June 7-10th, with a 2.7 percent margin of error.Though considered by many to be Trump’s toughest opponent, Trump and DeSantis are almost as far apart from each other as DeSantis and Senator Tim Scott, who is polling third, 15 points behind DeSantis, with 42...

Ron DeSantis (R-FL) ahead of his presidential campaign launch on Wednesday, asserting he would be doomed to fail in the general election after voting to overhaul entitlement programs when he was a congressman. Trump, the leading Republican presidential candidate, took to Truth Social to hit DeSantis’s support of legislation that took aim at Social Security and Medicare during his time in Congress :

    [snip] Wilson began by attacking DeSantis's personality, claiming that he "doesn't like humans, has to pretend to be human." He insisted DeSantis has a "mean streak." Yes, Rick Wilson said that, without any introspection about his own behavior.In contrast, despite being sure to get on record that he dislikes everything about Trump, Wilson argued Trump does have "charisma" and "energy." In a particularly gruesome metaphor, Wilson then predicted that in a debate, Trump would "tear Ron DeSantis's head off and kick it around like a soccer ball."Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    The Florida House passed a bill on Friday with a 76-34 vote that would permit the state leader to run for the presidency without stepping down from their current position. The bill’s approval comes only a few days after it was passed in the state Senate by a vote of 28 to 12. The bill is now on its way to Governor Ron DeSantis’ desk for approval. The timing of the bill’s approval and Governor DeSantis’ potential presidential announcement adds to the uniqueness of the situation.

    HOT AIR ^ | April 26, 2023 | Ed Morrisey
    "...this sounds pretty whiny for a first-look official campaign ad. The script for it amplifies that quality, as it sounds as though Trump wrote it himself. “Struggling big-time,” “failing so bad,” “Trump’s support was so powerful,” and so on. It’s comic-book language for a comic-book grudge. Everything about this ad is about Trump’s personal affront, and nothing — not a single word — is about the issues of the day, policies Trump wants to implement, or even voters themselves. It’s sixty seconds of personal butt-hurt, broadcast nationally."

    Florida Governor Ron DeSantis's stalling 2024 campaign has been hit by a triple threat - his perceived coldness, fundraising issues - and a resurgent Donald Trump. While DeSantis is still widely-hailed as an exceptionally-capable lawmaker, his apparent inability to connect with voters on the campaign trail outside Florida has some GOP bigwigs wondering if he has the sparkle necessary to win a presidential race. Longtime Republican strategist Mike Murphy is among those fearful over the Florida governor's struggles with so-called 'grip-and-grin' politics.
  • Trump is a hack

    So I just saw the Trump commercial re: Desantis. He accuses Desantis of wanting to cut Medicare funding among other things. All dark and foreboding in black and white (of course). And here's my favorite part: "Desantis even voted to raise the retirement age to 70"!! Anyone even halfway responsible who looks at the Social Security trust fund numbers knows the retirement age will have to be lifted. Americans are living longer. There's no other option. Well, there is one other option -- raising SS taxes and/or raising or eliminating the income cap. Both Democrat solutions. Of course Trump has...

    Former President Donald Trump was arraigned in New York on Tuesday on 34 felony counts of falsifying business records, but the largest blow to his hopes of reclaiming the White House might have occurred nearly 1,000 miles away in Wisconsin, where liberals secured a majority on the state's Supreme Court for the first time in 15 years. Hours after Trump became the first American president to face felony charges, Judge Janet Protasiewicz claimed victory over former Justice Dan Kelly, a major Trump supporter and one of the Wisconsin Republicans central to the former president's attempts to throw out the results...
