Ron DeSantis Rules Out 2024 White House Run, Plans to Run for Reelection as Florida Governor Instead

Ron DeSantis Rules Out 2024 White House Run, Plans to Run for Reelection as Florida Governor Instead

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis said on Tuesday that he plans to run for a second four-year term for governor, and plans to make a formal announcement at the end of the year.

Politico reports that DeSantis said that speculation about a 2024 presidential bid was “total garbage” and that it was a “safe assumption” he would run for a second term as governor, saying “I’m planning that, I haven’t announced yet, but I think it’s a safe assumption that I will do it. Any political stuff that you hear along those lines—that is total garbage. It’s not coming from me. I’m just doing a day at a time.”

Noting that he has three children under the age of 5, DeSantis knocked the notion that every office is a stepping stone for a higher one, saying that “I’ve got a young family, I have a good job, we have gotten a lot accomplished here. What’s wrong with just actually having accomplishments?”

DeSantis is, unquestionably, a great conservative and would make a great president. Florida is lucky to have him as governor and hopefully will again for a second term.
