Nikki Haley kicked her aggressive heels into the fight for the 2024 GOP candidacy this week, and other Republicans are anticipated to join soon, including Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who is said to be ready to run, but has not done so as of this week.
At a recent news conference on tort reform, a reporter questioned the immensely popular Republican governor whether he will be the next to declare, as reported by Jon Doughtery for Conservative Brief, with links to the comments.
“BREAKING: DeSantis asked if he’s running for president
“Nikki Haley announced her presidential run today, do you plan on following suit?”
“Hahaha! Wouldn’t you like to know!” Florida’s Voice (@FLVoiceNews) posted on Twitter on February 14, 2023.

Not everyone who likes DeSantis supports his current candidacy. Some people believe that he would make a great president, but that he should remain in Florida, where he is doing a great job, and run sometime in the future when the mud fights will not be as damaging as they are expected to be in the next few years – with the brutal battles that will undoubtedly occur over many difficult issues.
Doughtery’s article included a discussion of Sarah Palin’s remarks on this matter, and he continued:
Meanwhile, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who was the late John McCain’s presidential running mate in 2008, is encouraging DeSantis to stand down in 2024 and throw his support behind Donald Trump, the first to declare officially for the party’s nomination.
During an interview with Newsmax presenter Eric Bolling, Palin discussed rumors that DeSantis could run for president in 2024, pitting him against Trump in the GOP primary. Trump announced his candidacy for president in November.
“Do you think DeSantis jumps in?” Bolling asked Palin.
“DeSantis doesn’t need to,” Palin replied. “I envision him as our president someday, but not right now. Everybody I speak with in Florida, they all love him. And he does set the tone for, I’d say every other governor in the nation. I think he’s our best governor and he should stay governor for a bit longer. He’s young. You know he has decades ahead of him where he can be our president.”
“Trump needs to choose somebody who, like him, has nothing to lose. What more can they do to that person personally or verbal attacks or anything else on the family? That person has been through the wringer, so they know what they’re getting into. And that person then can just focus on doing what’s right for the people,” Palin said.
“Are you describing yourself?” Bolling asked.
“Not necessarily,” Palin said before referencing her run with McCain. “However, I’ll tell you, the opportunity that I had to run with someone who wasn’t as commonsense [of a] constitutional conservative as I, and I think the majority of Republicans were.
Palin makes several excellent arguments.
Sarah Louise Palin, according to her bio, is an American politician, broadcaster, author, and reality television personality who served as the ninth governor of Alaska from 2006 to 2009. She was the 2008 vice presidential nominee for the Republican Party alongside U.S. Senator John McCain.
Palin was without a doubt the most exciting aspect of the McCain ticket.
Obviously, the media handled her in a horrible manner, as they do with all conservatives, but she managed to keep her dignity and accurately convey the concerns that the majority of Americans have about an out-of-control and centralized government.
The left-leaning Guardian covered Palin’s remarks:
Sarah Palin, the former Alaska governor who was John McCain’s running mate in 2008 but resigned rather than complete her term, suggested that Florida Governor Ron DeSantis should remain in office “a bit longer” and not run for president in 2024.
DeSantis, 44, has not yet declared his candidacy, but he is generally expected to do so as Donald Trump’s sole formidable opponent, according to polls of the field’s formation.
Palin, a supporter of Trump, said Newsmax, “DeSantis does not need to run.” I envision him being our president in the future, but not currently.
