According to several GOP members who are close to Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, the governor is closer to reaching a decision on whether or not he will run for the presidency. Allegedly his advisers have already started the interview process looking through potential hires for his potential presidential campaign. They are also currently considering what the best time to announce his plans would be.
While a formal campaign launch is most likely months away, as most believe that DeSantis will not proceed with such an announcement before the state legislature ends its regular sessions in May, two different sources have revealed that the President is considering placing his bid in late May or early June.
One Republican operative even said that DeSantis has pretty much decided by now and that he is probably just wanting to finish the session and see where everything will stand then. He added that most likely unless a drastic change occurs “he’s a go.”
DeSantis has not revealed a lot about his 2024 ambitions, however, his position within the GOP has been rising consistently. According to most polls, he is either tied or leading against former President Donald Trump. Trump was long considered the most likely choice for the GOP’s presidential nomination before DeSantis’ prominence increased.
DeSantis’ advisers are working towards the goal of launching a presidential campaign. Phil Cox and Generra Peck, two veteran DeSantis campaign aides, have also been involved in the current preparations.
