DeSantis is making some very interesting moves.
In a strange turn of events, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is now endorsing California attorney Harmeet Dhillon who is trying to replace Republican National Committee chairwoman Ronna McDaniel.
This could be a sign that DeSantis is trying to nominate new Republicans into leadership so they can back him in 2024 when he runs for the presidency.
According to The Hill, Governor DeSantis endorsed Dhillon and explained, “I think we need a change.”
DeSantis later added, “I think we need to get some new blood in the RNC.”
“I like what Harmeet Dhillon has said about getting the RNC out of D.C. Why would you want to have your headquarters in the most Democrat city in America? It’s more Democrat than San Francisco is,” DeSantis later added.
DeSantis then talked about a large number of problems that has happened under McDaniel’s leadership and explained, “We’ve had three substandard election cycles in a row: ‘18, ‘20 and ‘22. And I would say of all three of those, ‘22 was probably the worst. Given the political environment of a very unpopular president in Biden, huge majorities of the people think the country is going in the wrong direction — that is an environment that’s tailor-made to make big gains in the House and the Senate and in state houses all across the country. And yet that didn’t happen.”
DeSantis has been running Florida and fighting back against Democrats very effectively since he has been governor. His endorsement of Dhillon could pay off monumentally for him if he needs her support when he is running against Trump in 2024.
