Can Ron DeSantis Win the Big One?

Animals,

We’ve been ignoring the elephant in the room, which is Florida Governor Ron DeSantis. There is simply no doubting the fact that he already rivals Trump’s power within the Republican Party, and is capable of not only succeeding Trump, but potentially knocking him off in the 2024 primaries.

As guest Curt Mills tells SSG, “DeSantis has really established a very interesting counter-model in Florida” to Democratic-dominated states like New York and California. And that DeSantis’s successes in contests against Disney and COVID mandates will doubtless be “very charismatic” to Republican voters and donors in 2024.

Is DeSantis the real thing? Or is he a flash-in-the-pan governor who will stay out of the race in 2024 and recede back into history?

CAN RON DESANTIS WIN THE BIG ONE?

This is a must-watch podcast. Our guest, Curt Mills, is a contributing editor at The American Conservative and gets invited on all the cable TV shows that we secretly love.

Here’s a sneak-preview of some of Curt’s smoking hot takes:

  • Does Trump still have that 2016 magic? “This is a much different environment. Things have changed.”
  • Is Trump too old? It certainly helps that DeSantis is “substantially younger than Trump.”
  • How would DeSantis take Trump out? “A substantial building block of any DeSantis campaign” is “who was the president when we locked down? Donald Trump. Who was the president when the city’s burned? Donald Trump.”
  • What’s the biggest difference between these two arch conservatives? Mostly, the notion that Ron DeSantis has, “More prodigious executive abilities”

With that as prologue, it’s worth asking, is Trump even the GOP top dog?

LASTLY, CURT GIVES HIS PROJECTIONS ON A FEW OTHER GOP PRESIDENTIAL HOPEFULS:

  • Kristi Noem
  • Tim Scott
  • Rick Scott
  • Mike Pompeo
  • Nikke Haley
