(FreedomBeacon.com)- Reports show that as the GOP field widens, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis reacted to a query about running for president in 2024.
At a press conference on tort reform in Jacksonville, Florida, a reporter questioned Governor DeSantis about Nikki Haley’s announcement that she would run for president in 2024.
The reporter asked DeSantis about Nikki Haley declaring her candidacy for the presidency and whether he would do the same.
DeSantis laughed and retorted wouldn’t he like to know?
Recently declared presidential candidate Nikki Haley took aim at DeSantis on Thursday, saying the Parental Bill of Rights doesn’t go far enough.
According to Fox News, Haley explained that the policy basically suggested that discussions of gender should be prohibited before the third grade. Haley felt that it wasn’t broad enough.
Haley remembers that at her school, 7th grade was when they got around to having human reproduction education. Nevertheless, parental consent was still required before enrollment. She stated it was a choice for parents to make.
DeSantis responded to the comments by saying that every morning he wakes up to many attacks. This has occurred repeatedly over a long period of time.
The Hill reports that Senate Republicans are waiting anxiously for Florida Governor Ron DeSantis to enter the presidential primary contest as they worry that former President Trump will maintain his polling advantage.
Although GOP legislators anticipate DeSantis to wait until the end of the Florida legislative session before making his move, the prolonged suspense has been wearing on everyone involved. Some have even begun to wonder if DeSantis has lost political steam since his reelection victory in November.
Fueling the controversy, The Conservative Treehouse reports that ardent 2024 Ron DeSantis supporter and anti-Trump Matt Tyrmand organized the revolution inside the Project Veritas group.
However, as The Conservative Treehouse pointed out, Ron DeSantis would be in violation of Florida law, so he cannot run for presidential office unless he resigns as governor first.
