DeSantis Hobbles to Finish Line

With the Iowa Caucuses less than a month away, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is in the last stretch of his presidential campaign.

Voters appear to be frowning upon his candidacy, and moving toward President Trump and Nikki Haley.

Donors are turning on him and Tallahassee-based supporters have all resigned that DeSantis's presidential race is over.

Team DeSantis is spinning the downward spiral of their campaign as sheer bluster, and are dismissing all of the public opinion polls that show Trump trouncing DeSantis.

It's all but over for DeSantis, but there is still an outside chance that he pulls it off, or at the very least, comes in a respectable 2nd Place in the early voting states


Debbie Wasserman Schultz-Fighting to restore democracy in #Venezuela, and protect and expand it at home, is what @DebbieforFL

and I did in Congress. So I know she’s the champion Floridians need in the Senate. Proud to join her and Venezuelan American leaders today to lay out our plans to do it.

MAGA War Room-Rep. @mattgaetz: "President Trump obliterated ISIS, he backed down Little Rocket Man, he kept Putin from invading his neighbors, Trump killed Soleimani, protected our service members, and actually put the tariffs on China that they have long deserved."

DeSantis War Room -DESANTIS: We need “a reckoning for how this government handled COVID. We need accountability for the CDC, for Fauci, for NIH, for FDA — for all these agencies that really plunged this nation into despair."

DeSantis is the only presidential candidate committed to this.

Rep. Cammack Press Office-This past weekend at the Highlands Memorial Park in Ocala, dozens of volunteers braved the chilly rain to honor our heroes with Wreaths Across America. American Legion Post 284 led the effort to honor each veteran buried there with a special ceremony and reflection.
