Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds is set to endorse Florida Governor Ron DeSantis for President at a rally in Des Moines tonight.
"As someone who is a leader you should want people who are delivering big victories for their Constituents, standing up for Conservative values which Kim has done," said DeSantis in a clip from an exclusive interview on NBC's Meet the Press. "With Donald Trump if you don't kiss the ring, you could be the best governor ever and he will trash you. You could be a terrible, corrupt politician but if you kiss his ring then all of a sudden he will praise you."

President Donald Trump went on a Truth Social rampage after hearing news of the endorsement calling Reynolds "extremely disloyal" and calling this the "end of her political career" and threatening that "MAGA will never support her again".
"Thank you Kevin and Kim Reynolds for welcoming us into your home today!" First Lady Casey DeSantis posted with a photo of her and the Governor along with Reynolds and her husband today at the Iowa Governor's Mansion.
Thank you Kevin and @KimReynoldsIA for welcoming us into your home today!
