DESANTIS NEW GOP STAR
The only red wave in America on Tuesday night came ashore in Florida where Governor Ron DeSantis stormed to victory.
The 44-year-old former U.S. Navy lawyer and decorated Iraq War veteran seized the state, winning big in the longtime Democrat stronghold of Miami-Dade County.
“We not only won the election,” DeSantis told supporters after his victory, “we have rewritten the political map.”
His huge win over Democrat Charlie Crist makes him, potentially, the new star of the Republican Party, and possibly the prime candidate in the 2024 Presidential election.
“DeSantis is the new head of the party, not a 76 year old man,” said Republican operative Caleb Hull.
Trump’s concerns about DeSantis as frontrunner have been smoldering for some time. He even suggested he has ‘dirt on DeSantis’ — who he nicknamed ‘DeSanctimonious.’
Whatever DeSantis decides about 2024, the midterm results made a good case for him as the man to bring America back from the edge of doom.
Ron DeSantis is a graduate of Yale and Harvard and a U.S. Navy lieutenant who was legal advisor to a Navy SEAL squad in Iraq in 2007.
His wife Casey, 42, a former Jacksonville news anchor, won a battle against breast cancer, recently being diagnosed as cancer-free. Ron and Casey have three children.
