Ron DeSantis is running for president – kind of. Florida state law prohibits a sitting Governor from running for President without resigning, however the Florida legislature seems intent to overturn that law for Ron DeSantis.
So, while DeSantis is in kind of a limbo before he can officially announce his candidacy (I mean, why give up a lucrative job in the meantime?), he has been busy traveling the country to give speeches and interviews, as well as turning Florida into a defacto fascist state with himself at the helm.
Even though a majority of GOPers polled prefer Trump, DeSantis is sure he can beat President Biden in a head-to-head matchup.
During an interview with Piers Morgan, which will air Thursday on "Piers Morgan Uncensored," DeSantis pointed to his massive reelection victory in Florida last year as the formula for him to prevail in a potential matchup with Biden.
"You can’t win with just Republicans. You’ve got to win with independents, and you need to convince some of these Democrats, which I was able to do in Florida,” DeSantis said, "I won with independents by 18 points.”
DeSantis told Morgan that if he "were to run," he would put his focus squarely on Biden and his failures as president. "I think he’s failed the country. I think the country wants a change. I think they want a fresh start and a new direction, and so we’ll be very vocal about that," he said.
DeSantis reiterated that he has not yet made a final decision on whether he will ultimately run. He has to wait until at least the Republican Florida legislature changes the state law to allow him to run and stay Governor at the same time, you know, in case he loses.
