LAS VEGAS – Florida Gov. Florida Governor. Ron DeSantis spoke energetically to a large crowd of donors and activists, highlighting his landslide victory and his conservative crudeness against “woke ideology”.
“We’ve accomplished more over a four-year period than anybody thought possible,” DeSantis touted as he delivered the keynote address on Saturday night in Las Vegas at the Republican Jewish Coalition’s annual leadership meeting, which is seen as the first major Republican cattle call in the 2024 White House race.
DeSantis, 44, is 32 years younger that former President Donald Trump. He won his first term as governor in 2018, thanks to a substantial assist from the president. But he’s become a force of his own as he’s built a political brand that stretches from coast to coast.
Florida’s governor has seen his popularity soar among conservatives across the country the past two and a half years, courtesy of his forceful pushback against coronavirus pandemic restrictions and his aggressive actions as a culture wars warrior, as he’s targeted the media and corporations.
