By Townhall. Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla) is reportedly planning a long-awaited 2024 presidential announcement, as his staff prepares for the potential White House bid.
The Washington Post reported that two Republicans with knowledge of DeSantis’s 2024 plans, said that DeSantis is “laying a foundation for a national campaign” amid meetings and preliminary staffing moves.
The WaPo said that the possible future DeSantis 2024 campaign has “already identified multiple potential hires in early primary states such as New Hampshire and Iowa.”
The Republican also told the outlets that Phil Cox and Generra Peck, two key members of DeSantis’s 2022 re-election team, are involved in talks about 2024.
Cox was the former executive director of the Republican Governors Association, while Crist was the campaign manager for DeSantis’s midterm victory over Democrat Charlie Crist. (Read more from “DeSantis Advisors Are Reportedly Preparing for His 2024 Presidential Announcement” HERE)

“When I hear that he might [run] I think it’s very disloyal,” Trump said. . .
“He won’t be leading, I got him elected,” he said. “I’m the one that chose him.” (Read more from “Trump Hits DeSantis: He’s a COVID Skeptic Phony” HERE)
