Well, that was startling.
As exclusively reported by Fox News, 100+ former Trump officials have announced an “Eight-Year Alliance” … backing Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
Given that Trump is ahead in multiple polls, including well ahead of Biden, the “Eight-Year Alliance” has undoubtedly caught more than one conservative by surprise.
Nonetheless, 100+ former Trump officials assert that they have found “a proven winner” in DeSantis following his impressive victory during the most recent gubernatorial race.
In addition, the officials note that they would prefer to avoid a potential “lame duck” presidency, as Trump has already served a first term.
Quite amazing that a candidate who has yet to make an official announcement is enjoying such fervent support from myriad Trump officials.
According to a top DeSantis political operation official, DeSantis is enjoying especially strong support amongst Florida’s lawmakers, in spite of the fact that Trump has long called Florida home.
“Ron DeSantis’ support among Republicans in the Florida legislature is almost universal because these lawmakers have partnered with the governor to pass the most robust conservative agenda in the history of the state, putting Florida at the top of the rankings on every key metric,” the official brayed.
DeSantis himself is clearly loving the potential presidential playout, proclaiming at one point there were only three real possibilities “in this whole thing.”
“You have basically three people at this point that are credible in this whole thing … Biden, Trump and me,” DeSantis boomed.
However, DeSantis apparently posits himself as a good alternative to individuals who apparently can’t stomach Trump as president again, though one can only wonder how a powder keg planet and nonexistent border are remotely viable alternatives.
“And I think of those three, two have a chance to get elected president – Biden and me, based on all the data in the swing states, which is not great for the former president and probably insurmountable because people aren’t going to change their view of him,” DeSantis continued.
Mind you, DeSantis’s confidence emerged prior to the declaration of South Carolina Senator Tim Scott, who has recently proclaimed his own interest in the 2024 presidential race.
“Joe Biden and the radical left are attacking every rung of the ladder that helped me climb … And that is why I am announcing today that I am running for President of the United States of America,” Scott proclaimed.
Interestingly, Trump has responded far more favorably to Scott than he has to DeSantis … as Trump continues to blast DeSantis as “DeSanctimonious.”
Scott, however, as a clearly fervent patriot, as well as one who is well-equipped to call out Democrats left and right for their wanton destruction of America, may well represent an outstanding complement to Trump … and a brighter future for the nation.
