Any Floridian who casts a vote against Governor Ron DeSantis is nuts. The election for Florida governor has national implications. Governor DeSantis can’t run for POTUS in 2024, if he is not re-elected governor of Florida in 2022. Outside of President Trump, Governor DeSantis is our only viable candidate for 2024.

Ron DeSantis plans Friday campaign event, but don’t call it a kick-off
By Florida Politics, April 16, 2021Friday promises a big DeSantis event in Trump country.
One conservative media outlet is reporting Gov. Ron DeSantis may launch his reelection campaign on Friday. More plugged in sources dispute that’s what’s happening while still confirming that an “event” is on.
Right Side Broadcasting Network is provocatively billing “LIVE: FL Gov. Ron DeSantis Re-Election Campaign Kickoff in West Palm Beach – 4/16/21” for Friday afternoon.
“It’s one of the most patriotic intersections in all of Florida, ‘Trumps Corner’. No better place to rally behind this popular Governor as he campaigns for another term. We’ll see if there’s any ‘special guests’ that make an appearance,” teases the description.
The “special guests” would presumably include former President Donald Trump.
The DeSantis campaign did not circulate advance notice of this alleged “kick off” event to the Tallahassee press corps that covers it, and one key member downplayed the framing.
DeSantis, tweeted POLITICO Florida’s Gary Fineout, “is not officially kicking off his re-election campaign tomorrow, per sources. He is doing an event in West Palm Beach….”
The Governor, for what it’s worth, has been quite explicit about avoiding “corporate media” to make his argument to his base. Much of his messaging has been deliberately anti-press, with spats about “smears” with “60 Minutes“ and censorship with Google, and YouTube. Right Side Broadcasting Network has complained of its own shadowbanning, which will provide an interesting wrinkle to its so-called “kick off” coverage of a Governor at war with the “big tech cartel.“
The Right Side Broadcasting Network has only existed since 2015, and is best known for carrying every Trump speech since that time on YouTube. The YouTube channel now has about 1.5 million subscribers,
Regardless of when DeSantis starts the formal campaign, he is well positioned.
The Governor looks to be the favorite, at least in the embryonic stages of this race, with those willing to hazard a guess on a hypothetical victor. The PredictIt platform shows DeSantis yes shares valued at 78 cents each. His closest rival, Democrat Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried, is at just 15 cents per share.
