  • Conservatives call on Haley to drop out and back Trump: ‘Please withdraw from the race now’

    EXCLUSIVE — A group of 12 prominent conservatives, including a former governor, media executives, and a former U.S. attorney general, have issued a letter calling for Nikki Haley to drop out of the race for president. The former U.N. ambassador is the last remaining GOP opponent in former President Donald Trump‘s quest to win a nonconsecutive second term in the White House. She has vowed to remain in the race and is continuing to raise money, but the group argues she is only damaging her party. “While you have waged a spirited campaign for the 2024 Republican Party nomination, it...

    Nikki Haley doubles DeSantis' support. Donald Trump leads him by 57 points. Gov. Ron DeSantis arguably had his best performance in a national debate this week, with a widely viewed showdown with California’s Gavin Newsom the week before. But new polling suggests it might not matter. In the latest Emerson College poll, the Florida Governor has fallen to 7%, his worst showing in any national survey in the 2024 cycle. Adding insult to injury, DeSantis is actually at 6.7%, benefiting from rounding to even hit the modest 7% threshold. DeSantis trails Nikki Haley, who has double his support at 14%....

    Feeling empowered after his boost from Georgia Republican Governor Brian Kemp, a man of notoriously intemperate disposition, presidential candidate Ron DeSantis begins the process to align himself with the neocon establishment and labeling Donald Trump supporters as “listless vessels” devoid of principle, who simply “follow whatever comes down the pike from Truth Social every morning.”Appearing with a young millennial wearing a beaver tail on his head, namely Will Witt from the Florida Standard, Ron DeSantis outlines his opinion that the MAGA movement is only driven by the support of President Donald Trump, a person who has exhausted his usefulness in...

    Florida Governor Ron DeSantis was mocked online for his "awkward" entrance with his wife, Casey DeSantis at the wedding of Iowa Republican Taylor Collins in Des Moines on Saturday night, with social media users accusing him of stealing attention from the bride and groom. Videos of the event shared online show the Florida governor entering the wedding reception, held at the Beaux-Arts-style building, with his wife and walking straight into the room after the newlywed couple. Collins and his bride can be seen stepping to the side and clapping for the Republican governor as the audience in attendance cheers. DeSantis...

    Ron DeSantis has broken with 70 percent of the Republican base, telling NBC News, “Of course [Trump] lost: Joe Biden’s the President.” The stunning remarks, though caveated with complaints about mail-in voting and ballot harvesting, are unlikely to endear DeSantis to his party’s voters, a majority of whom are already soured by the Florida Governor’s lackluster campaign and toxic online strategies.DeSantis, who has spent the last two weeks watching some of his chief donors abandon his beleaguered presidential campaign, told NBC News: “Whoever puts their hand on the Bible on Jan. 20 every four years is the winner,” before being...

The billionaire UFO enthusiast had harsh words for the campaign when asked if he’d continue his financial support:“Not until I see that he’s able to generate more on his own. I’m already too big a percentage… A lot of his donors are still on the...

    Speaking in South Carolina today, presidential candidate Ron DeSantis blamed President Trump for the events of January 6, 2021, in Washington DC saying, “I think it was shown how he was in the White House and didn’t do anything while things were going on. Should he have come out more forcefully? Of course.” However, DeSantis affirmed he does not believe Trump’s transgressions amounted to criminal conduct. “But to try to criminalize that, that’s a different issue entirely,” the Florida governor noted.Governor DeSantis then tacked to his preferred position that politicians should not be criminally targeted and promised if he was...

    Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said Tuesday he would not be former President Donald Trump’s running mate if given the opportunity to join him on the ticket. “I don’t think so. I’m not a No. 2 guy,” DeSantis said on the “Wisconsin Right Now” radio show, saying he would rather stay on as governor because the vice presidency “doesn’t really have any authority.” Asked about his own thoughts on a running mate, DeSantis said, "It’s a little bit presumptuous to be doing that at this stage." "I’m here to win the early primaries, and that’s what we’ve got to do first,"...

    FOX News anchor Maria Bartiromo tore into Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis on Sunday as he continues to fall behind in national polls. 'Maria, these are narratives,' the Florida governor said of the news that he is trailing in the polls. 'The media does not want me to be the nominee,' he claimed. 'I think that's very, very clear. Why? Because they know I will beat Biden. But more importantly they know I will actually deliver on all these things.' At that point, the FOX News host decided to close out the interview by asking the governor if he plans to...

    The Ron DeSantis campaign continues to collapse under the inertia of its central flaw, a terrible candidate.Hundreds-of-millions have been amassed to structure the pretending, create the brand image and present the narrative of something completely false.The central flaw was always, eventually, going to surface.Tens of millions have been spent on the launch and careful construct. However, when the core of the effort is built upon a false premise, there is nothing that can be done to change the outcome. Truth has a way of being self-evident; this represents the ultimate problem for the DeSantis team.Every single week since the launch...

    As Ron DeSantis pursues the presidency, his wife’s role is limitless. Casey, 42, isn’t a typical political spouse. Why does that inspire so much fear? Her rise in TV and insular marriage tell the story.“Where is she at?”Ron was always asking.Ron DeSantis was in the middle of a picnic in Sioux Center, Iowa, bent over a homemade poster. Four photos, arranged in a neat grid, stared back at him: Ron and Casey, smiling on election night, 2022; Ron and Casey, smiling outside the governor’s mansion, 2021; a headshot of Ron; a headshot of Casey. The governor signed his name in...

    Both Trump and DeSantis tied for first place with 41 percent support each in their home state. No other potential candidate came close. Pence fell 38 percent points behind with three percent support. Christie, Ramaswamy, and Haley came one point behind with two percent support, and zero percent supported Elder, Hutchinson, and Scott. Overall, eight percent of Florida GOP voters are “not sure” who they would support. Notably, 71 percent chose DeSantis as their first-choice candidate, compared to 57 percent who said the same of Trump. When asked who would be their second-choice candidate, 30 percent said DeSantis, followed by...
