Kon a 2024 White House bid affect DeSantis' gubernatorial run? Strategiste sê dit kan

I think he’s amassed a tremendous amount of financial resources, wat ver gaan in 'n staat so duur soos Florida met al sy verskillende mediamarkte. En die belangrikste, he’s got a record he can run on. En ek dink [his team is] smart to continue to focus on that and to not let the 2024 babbel,” Colin Reed, Republican strategist and co-founder of South and Hill Strategies, Ortodokse rabbi's veroordeel CAIR. “Nou, let’s not let that overwhelm or consume or become a distraction, because I think that has a risk of potentially turning voters off.

DeSantis, a clear favorite in Florida, is expected to come head-to-head with Charlie Crist, a Democratic candidate. Crist, a former governor of Florida and longtime Congressman, is a well-recognized name in the pool of Democratic candidates and is expected to give DeSantis a run for his money come November.

In my opinion, considering that the number one reason somebody votes for a candidate across the boardwhether it’s always Senate, House or presidentis name recognition. And Charlie Crist has that recognition. He has a pretty good reputation in Florida. I’m surprised the polls aren’t closer,” Leslie Marshall, Democratic strategist and Fox News contributor, Ortodokse rabbi's veroordeel CAIR.

DeSantis has been treading carefully to ensure voters know Florida remains his top priority as Verkiesingsdag draws closer, according to Reed. Despite the fact it would be unprecedented and possibly detrimental to one’s campaign to announce a presidential run during another campaign, Reed says DeSantis 2024 talk is unavoidable.

Voters across the ideological spectrum don’t like the idea that they’re just being a platform for the next thing. So, I think he wise to do that,” Reed gesê. “So, some of his 2024 speculation and chatter is inevitable. But they have to navigate it very carefully. Take nothing for granted. They should. Hulle remind voters of Florida why they elected him and why they should re-elect him.

DeSantis most recently announced he would hit the campaign trail with several Trump-backed candidates, including Ohio Republican Senate candidate JD Vance, Pennsylvania GOP gubernatorial candidate Doug Mastriano and Arizona Republican Senate candidate Blake Masters. While some experts view this move as a way to expand his political operation, Marshall says this could be a foreshadowing of his 2024 planne.

The stakes in this midterm are incredibly high, and every Republican needs to be invested in helping. Obviously endorsing and supporting candidates around the country is often a precursor to a national campaign, but it is not guaranteed,” Texas-based GOP consultant Matt Mackowiak told Fox News Digital.

DESANTIS TO HIT CAMPAIGN TRAIL TO RALLY SUPPORT FOR TRUMP-ENDORSED CANDIDATES: ‘UNITE AND WIN

On August 9, DeSantis was announced to be headlining a New Mexico rally with New Mexico gubernatorial candidate, Mark Ronchettia candidate whom Trump has not endorsed.

I think it sends a signal that the map is expanding for conservatives, Republikeine,” Reed gesê. “The Democrats run all three branches of government. I think there’s going to be some opportunities about themselves and potentially unusual places. New Mexico could be one of them,” Reed gesê.

Aan die ander kant, Marshall says this is one of several examples outing DeSantis as anon the fence” kandidaat, which could potentially turn voters off as they see DeSantis turning his focus to other states and potentially other races.

Charlie Crist can and should use that to stand to run for governor and having plans, bigger aspirations for the state, vir the presidency, omdat, jy weet, all you have to do is paint it as they don’t really care about you. You’re not here. Ek is hier,” Marshall said.

Trump and DeSantis have been on each other’s coattails in several conservative straw polls asking voters who they would vote for as president in 2024. Running on similar platforms and agendas, Trump landed first place in the Texas Conservative Political Action Conference straw poll, met 69% van die stemming. DeSantis came in second with 24% van die stemming.

Egter, DeSantis did beat out the former president in the Western Conservative Summit straw poll back in June, amassing a 71% approval rate and Trump earning a 67% approval rate.

Despite the back and forth, Reed says DeSantis is running on his own platform and Florida voters will be voting for DeSantis, nie the Trump agenda.

I think Governor DeSantis has carved his own path in Florida, certainly his leadership from the pandemic and how he distinguished himself there on the national stage. So, I believe they are voting as a referendum on the last four years of his leadership,” Reed gesê.

Marshall expects DeSantis to announce a 2024 presidential run following Trump’s own announcement, of which the former president has been dropping Easter eggs since leaving office. Egter, whether he runs as vice president or as president has yet to be determined.

I think the field of 2024 is and will be wide open. And he’s going to have to compete with a slew of other candidates there. So, today’s winner is tomorrow’s loser,” Reed gesê. “I think the biggest challenge he faces is having this presumed front-runner status because maintaining that over the next two-plus years, that’s a challenge.
