Update on the 2024 election.
According to Trump’s former chief of staff Mark Meadows, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis will not run for President if Trump decides he will run.
Former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows thinks you can add Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis to the list of Republican presidential hopefuls who won’t run against former President Donald Trump in 2024 should he enter the race.
DeSantis recently edged out Trump in the Western Conservative Summit’s presidential straw poll, but Meadows, in an exclusive interview with the Washington Examiner that took place ahead of the poll’s release, danced around DeSantis’s skyrocketing popularity and the notion he might challenge another White House bid from the 45th president.
“Gov. DeSantis has made it very, very clear that he is running for reelection as governor of Florida, but he doesn’t shy away from being very bold in terms of the initiatives that he’s putting forth,” the former House Freedom Caucus chairman stated, citing three days he recently spent with DeSantis in California. “His reelect for governor is a platform to show that the policies, and the boldness, and, quite frankly, the courage.”
“You know, I think Ron DeSantis is identified across the country now for the courage that he shows for conservative solutions, and he would be the first to say that if President Trump gets in, that he would win the nomination and would clear the field, and so I don’t ever see it being a 2016 primary scenario,” Meadows continued. “That being said, Gov. DeSantis won’t even — he’s asked over and over and over again every time I’m in his presence — he’s been asked, ‘Are you running in 2024?'”
“His answer has been consistent: He is running for reelection for governor of the state that not only he loves, but one that is, quite frankly, well run because of his leadership.”
DeSantis not running will avoid a tough primary between two great conservatives.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has become a superstar in the Republican party due to how he handled the Coronavirus pandemic in Florida.
On the Presidential level, Trump has beaten DeSantis in nearly every poll.
The only poll where Trump polled lower than DeSantis is the straw poll mentioned above. (It was only by 1%)
Trump has shown no signs of not running in 2024.
Although he is yet to announce he will run he has strongly hinted at it every time he has been asked.
