The 2024 Presidential election is about to get serious.
A new candidate is on the verge of entering the race.
Ron DeSantis is about to take a trip that will turn the 2024 election upside down.
Governor DeSantis is using the publications of his new book The Courage to be Free: Florida’s Blueprint for American Revival to travel to Iowa, New Hampshire, and Nevada.
The New York Times reports:
Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida will make his debut appearances in three early presidential primary states in the next several weeks, according to two people briefed on his plans, selling his performance in his own state as he lays the groundwork for an expected presidential campaign.
Mr. DeSantis is tentatively expected to appear in Iowa during the first half of March, making stops in Davenport and Des Moines, according to the people briefed on his schedule who requested anonymity because they weren’t authorized to discuss the plans publicly. Shortly after, he is expected to appear in Nevada, an early primary state, followed a few weeks later by an expected trip to Manchester, New Hampshire.
An appearance in South Carolina is also being discussed, according to the people briefed.
Those three states and South Carolina comprise the first four nominating contests in the GOP Presidential Primary.
This is the surest sign yet that DeSantis is just months away from announcing his candidacy for President of the United States.
Polls show that Ron DeSantis and Donald Trump are the two leading Republican White House hopefuls.
A new survey from California found DeSantis leading Donald Trump 37 to 32 percent despite the fact that DeSantis is not yet a declared candidate.
But DeSantis is waiting for Florida to wrap up its legislative sessions where DeSantis expects to notch conservative wins on guns and abortion before announcing his candidacy.
DeSantis’ Presidential campaign is likely to center on his freedom agenda, which was founded on two pillars of standing up to Dr. Fauci and the woke mob.
Governor DeSantis raised a record sum for his re-election campaign and is already sitting on an $80 million war chest to seed a 2024 White House bid.
DeSantis traveling to critical early voting states should put to rest any doubts about if DeSantis would challenge Trump in the 2024 election.
