Ron DeSantis Jumps Into 2024 Presidential Race, Setting Up Showdown With Trump
Ron DeSantis is in. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis officially filed the paperwork to run for president on Wednesday, kicking off his much-anticipated battle with former President Donald Trump.
DeSantis, who is seen as a rising star in the Republican Party, has been a vocal critic of Trump in recent months. He has accused Trump of being a "threat to democracy" and has said that he would not support him in 2024.
Trump, for his part, has not yet announced whether he will run for president in 2024. However, he has repeatedly hinted that he is considering it and has continued to hold rallies and raise money.
A poll conducted in March found that Trump was the most popular choice among Republican voters for president in 2024. However, DeSantis was a close second.
The race between DeSantis and Trump is likely to be one of the most closely watched in 2024. Both men are popular with Republican voters and both have a strong base of support.
The winner of the Republican nomination will be the favorite to win the general election. The Democratic Party is currently in disarray and does not have a clear frontrunner.
DeSantis' entry into the race is a major development. It will likely force Trump to make a decision about his own candidacy sooner rather than later.
The race between DeSantis and Trump is likely to be a bitter one. Both men are known for their sharp tongues and their willingness to attack their opponents.
The 2024 presidential race is shaping up to be one of the most contentious in recent history. DeSantis' entry into the race only adds to the excitement.
