ccording to sources close to Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, he is “almost certainly” going to seek the GOP nomination in 2024. This means a grueling head to head battle with Donald J. Trump is on the horizon.
News on Governor DeSantis approaching the decision comes from The Hill, which reported that “Several Republicans familiar with the deliberations say that DeSantis is almost certain to seek the GOP’s presidential nomination. His advisers have begun reaching out to and interviewing potential hires for a campaign and are gaming out the best time to announce his intentions.”
Those sources also told The Hill that a final announcement is still months away. That is because Governor DeSantis wants to wait until the state legislature has wrapped up its normal session in May before making an announcement. So, according to those two sources that discussed the matter with The Hill, a DeSantis announcement would come in late May or early June.
But the public having to wait months to hear his decision doesn’t mean that DeSantis isn’t on the cusp of making it. According to one source quoted by The Hill, his mind is nearly made up and he plans on running. That source said “I think his mind is pretty much made up at this point. My read on it is: Let’s get through session, get some stuff done and see where things stand. But unless something changes drastically between now and then, I’d say he’s a go.”
