Ron DeSantis: Is the Florida governor the Republicans’ only hope?

The New York Post recently proclaimed him “DeFuture.”  The Florida governor has a lot to recommend himself for the Republican nomination.  A resounding re-election, a strong resume, a coronavirus response rooted in freedom, and a willingness to fight for conservative causes.  At least, that’s the theory.  The practice, as ever, is a lot more complicated… Continue reading Ron DeSantis: Is the Florida governor the Republicans’ only hope?

Trump and DeSantis: Rumors of one’s political demise are greatly exaggerated, as are calls for the other’s coronation

Last week’s midterm debacle has renewed calls in certain quarters to dump former President Donald Trump, blaming him entirely for the Republican’s poor performance, and to elevate Governor Ron DeSantis after his domination in Florida.  We should be wary of both.  Many promoting this have vehemently opposed the former President since his candidacy while the… Continue reading Trump and DeSantis: Rumors of one’s political demise are greatly exaggerated, as are calls for the other’s coronation
