DeSantis will (probably) run for POTUS

Apr 3, 2023 | True Patriot News Daily

In case you didn't catch his speech this weekend, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis all but confirmed that he's going to run for president in 2024. During his hour long speech in front of the Pennsylvania Leadership Conference on Saturday, DeSantis talked about keeping “the flame of liberty” alive and well in America. 

The question remains though, can either DeSantis or Trump survive a campaign season against each other, or will they tear each other apart to get the GOP nomination? If either candidate is too bruised from the Republican primaries, it could hurt their chances in the general election against Joe Biden. 

So that leaves Republican voters with a serious decision to make: will they hitch their wagon to Trump again, or take their chances with a new candidate like Ron DeSantis? Both men stand a good chance against sleepy Joe Biden, but only if they don't destroy each other first in the primaries. At times like these, it's vital to remember that we're all on the same team, and we all want the same thing at the end of the day: to get Joe Biden out of the White House and save America.

Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) left little doubt during his speech Saturday to Keystone State conservatives gathered for the annual Pennsylvania Leadership Conference: He is running for the Republican nomination for president. Nothing and no one will get in his way of doing that.

“We have a responsibility to preserve what the founders of our country called the sacred fire of liberty,” the Florida governor said in his closing remarks of the nearly hourlong speech that brought attendees at the Penn Harris conference center, even those with red MAGA hats on, to their feet several times.

DeSantis told the crowd, “the fire of liberty” began right here in this state in 1776 at Independence Hall in Philadelphia, “when 56 men pledged their lives to establish a new nation” and continued down the road in Gettysburg when the nation's first Republican president pledged this nation to a new birth of freedom.

Continuing that fire of liberty, he said, “is a responsibility that we as conservatives have at this time in our history. It's not something that we should shrink from. It's something that we should welcome. We need to be strong. We need to hold the line. And we can never, ever back down.”
