Looks like Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is trying to make sure that Donald Trump’s voters know he’s with the populist program as he sets himself up as a possible alternative to Trump in 2024.
DeSantis, Sen. Ted Cruz, and Mike Pence are all watching to see if Trump’s support declines, and if so may jump into the race even if he runs.
According to Fox News:
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is hitting the campaign trail this month to headline Turning Point Action’s “Unite and Win” rallies in support of Trump-endorsed candidates.
DeSantis will travel to New Mexico, Arizona, Pennsylvania and Ohio this month in support of GOP candidates, including Ohio Republican candidate for Senate JD Vance, Pennsylvania’s GOP gubernatorial candidate Doug Mastriano, Arizona Republican candidate for Senate Blake Masters and GOP nominee for governor Kari Lake.
Turning Point Action is hosting, and organizing the rallies with DeSantis in an effort to “unite” the Republican Party.
“Gov. DeSantis is America’s governor and one of the most popular leaders in America,” Charlie Kirk, founder and president of Turning Point Action, told Fox News. “He has become the model for a new conservative movement that is willing to stand on principle and to actually fight on behalf of the values of his voters.”
