One fight between Trump and this rock star Republican could get really ugly fast

The Democrats are taking a victory lap after avoiding the projected “red wave.”

The surprising Midterm result has the GOP looking for solutions moving forward.

And one fight between Donald Trump and this rock star Republican could get really ugly fast.

All signs pointed to the Republicans romping in the Midterm elections, but the party underperformed.

Republicans appear poised to take back the House, but not with the historic margin projected.

However, one Republican undeniably had a great night: Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.

Not only did DeSantis win re-election by an eye-popping 19 points, he transformed Florida from a purple state to a blood red state.

And establishment Republicans and Democrats are using that as an opportunity to drive a wedge between Donald Trump and DeSantis.

DeSantis’s resounding victory, along with virtually every other Republican in the state, means that Trump may not be handed the GOP nomination on a silver platter in 2024, especially with many of his hand-picked candidates underperforming in the Midterms.

A few days before the election, Trump appeared at a rally and bizarrely referred to DeSantis as “Ron DeSanctimonious.”

And after the strong night for Florida Republicans, Trump said, “I don’t know if [DeSantis] is running. I think if he runs, he could hurt himself very badly . . . I really believe he could hurt himself badly. I think he would be making a mistake. I think the base would not like it — I don’t think it would be good for the party . . . If he runs, he runs . . . I would tell you things about him that won’t be very flattering — I know more about him than anybody — other than, perhaps, his wife.”

The in-fighting with DeSantis is a bad look for the party, and it’s exactly what the Democrats want.

Joe Biden and the chattering class on cable news have already played up the battle between the two Republican titans.

The clash is also a distraction from the fact that Mitch McConnell and the establishment Republicans did a terrible job in the Midterms.

McConnell refused to spend on Blake Masters in Arizona, and other good Republican candidates were left twisting in the wind without much party support.

McConnell, however, was invested in defeating Kari Lake in the Republican Primary and ensuring that Lisa Murkowski gets another term in Alaska.

Party leadership has a lot to answer for, and they’re perfectly willing to lay all of the blame at the feet of Trump as a scapegoat.

But Trump shouldn’t take the bait and lash out at DeSantis, who will not be announcing his candidacy for the President any time soon.

Democrats want Trump and the Republicans distracted so they stop highlighting how horrendous Biden’s leadership has been.
