DeSantis is Trump the Second but much smarter, more articulate and more politically savvy. I think he's the frontrunner for the GOP nomination in 2024.https://www.cnn.com/2021/03/17/politics/ron-desantis-covid-florida/index.html
I'll take this over the endless rioting in portland. the exodus from new york; the recall in calif; the mess that's illinois. yes give me desantis all day long for prez. It’s a shame there’s only one DeSantis and one Florida. It’s filling up and getting expensive. Folks are willing to drop heavy bucks to get out of calif and New York.
That said, he'd hardly be a lock for the White House. His friendships with both Trump and Gaetz could prove harmful, particularly if either (or both) gets indicted. He's shifty-eyed, rarely smiles and lacks charisma. The filing of unemployment claims at the beginning of Covid was a well-publicized debacle in Florida. Piney Point could hurt him if it results in another red tide and a concomitant hit to tourism. The anti-riot law could blow up on him if it's found to be unconstitutional. He's definitely got his kryptonite.
