Ok ... still waiting for DeSantis to make a formal announcement.

Ex-Trump campaign adviser Steve Cortes endorses DeSantis for 2024: ‘Best possible option to win the presidency’

A former adviser to Donald Trump’s 2016 and 2020 presidential campaigns backed Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis Tuesday, saying the 44-year-old “represents the best possible option to win the presidency in 2024 and to govern as a highly capable, patriotic populist leader.”

“I have worked as a dedicated spokesman and advocate for Donald Trump for much of the last seven years, so I do not arrive at that conclusion flippantly,” Steve Cortes wrote in a Newsweek op-ed announcing his endorsement.

“But our America First movement has always been bigger and more important than any one individual, and heading into this crucial election, our activism and our votes must be guided by a clear-eyed assessment of recent failures and potential future successes.”

Cortes, now an adviser to the pro-DeSantis super PAC Never Back Down, said voters should opt out of a Biden-Trump rematch next year.

“The country is miserable,” Cortes said. “That’s not some biased or uninformed right-wing opinion, but the harsh reality revealed by data and evidence.”.................

Live in harmony with one another; do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly, do not claim to be wiser than you are.  Do not repay anyone evil for evil, but take thought for what is noble in the sight of all.  If it is possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all…do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

Governor Ron DeSantis represents the best possible option to win the presidency in 2024 and to govern as a highly capable, patriotic populist leader.

Trump may well win the nomination anyway.  But him running essentially unopposed in the GOP primary would have been a disgrace.

DeSantis should run and take his best shot, win or lose, to give the rest of us Republicans a real choice.

I would say, as of now, it looks like Trump will be the nominee. But a lots gonna happen, and the primary season has yet to begin. At this time in 2007, I would’ve bet everything that Hillary Clinton was going to be the nominee for the Democrats in 2008.
I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them.
