The popularity of Ron DeSantis, the Republican governor of Florida, has increased by leaps and bounds as Joe Biden slowly destroys America.
DeSantis has raised more than $100 million for his re-election campaign, making him the first gubernatorial candidate in the state and probably the entire country to do so.
This staggering amount not only gives DeSantis a significant advantage over Democrats in November, but it also sends an unmistakable message to the field of potential Republican candidates for president in 2024 that he is already a promising candidate with broad support from both major donors and grassroots voters.
Scott Reed, former president of the US Chamber of Commerce and senior Republican strategist, remarked that his fundraising abilities “catapults him into the top tier of potential GOP candidates,”
According to the Saint Leo University Polling Institute, DeSantis leads former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist by 16 points at 49 percent to 33 percent, Crist’s former running mate, state senator Annette Taddeo, by 19 points at 49 percent to 30 percent, and Florida Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried by an astonishing 24 points at 51 percent to 27 percent.
All of this has not escaped the attention of President Trump.
There were allegations of a disagreement between the two late last year.
Nevertheless, according to Donald Trump’s aides, Senator Mitch McConnell was behind the increasing rumors of a conflict between Trump and DeSantis.
Trump was reportedly unhappy that DeSantis has not said if he will seek the 2024 Republican candidacy.

In a Thursday interview with Newmax’s Wake Up America, Trump said he ‘gets along with’ DeSantis when asked if he has thought about adding him to a potential 2024 presidential ticket. CONTINUE READING…
