While the tag "DeathSantis" trends on Twitter, Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL), has done nothing but boost his electability in 2022, and possibly boosting his shot at the White House in 2024.

After months of clashing with the media, ripping on President Biden (D), and displaying pure efficiency with an open state policy, DeSantis is Public Enemy #1 for Democrats across the nation, just as the recent scandals sobering Governor Andrew Cuomo's (D-NY) stardom, and the mess that is Governor Newsom's (D-CA) California continue to unfold.

DeSantis has easily positioned himself among the top tier of US Governors as Florida has prospered.

Representative Matt Gaetz (R-FL) took to Twitter today to point out a Republican-led Florida's success over blue states such as New York and California.

According to many Florida polls, DeSantis has a higher favorability among Republicans than former President Donald Trump (R) who won the state of Florida by the largest vote margin since 2004 in his re-election bid.  These numbers also stagger over other Florida GOP members such as Senator Marco Rubio, and Senator Rick Scott.

Top advisor to Senator Mitch McConnell, Josh Holmes, described DeSantis as, "having a moment with Conservatives."  And with a 64% approval rating, this claim is hard to argue.

If Cuomo genuinely wishes to answer Socialist prayers of a 2024 run for the White House, then he better take notes from DeSantis and realize it takes more than whinny press conferences to be a leader.
