Florida Governor Ron DeSantis got even more encouragement to run for president.
This is major news.
Ron DeSantis just got one game-changing 2024 endorsement.
A new CNN poll showed 59 percent of Republican voters want a nominee that agrees with them on the issues.
Both Donald Trump and DeSantis are running as “America First” conservatives appealing to the GOP base.
One way voters will determine which candidate they think shares their values will be by seeing who endorses Trump and DeSantis.
That’s why conservative Texas Congressman Chip Roy endorsing DeSantis is so important.
Roy won the admiration of conservatives across the country by leading the opposition to Kevin McCarthy as speaker of the House.
Congressman Roy led a band of 20 holdouts who refused to vote for McCarthy until McCarthy agreed to concessions on policy and rules changes that granted conservatives in the House more power and stripped some power from the D.C. swamp to steamroll its agenda into law.
In his endorsement of DeSantis Roy told conservatives they need a candidate with a track record of fighting and defeating the left.
“The next President of the United States must be a vibrant and energetic leader with the faith, vision, and courage to chart a new course. America needs a leader who will truly defend her and empower the people against the destructive force of unrestrained government and corporate excess, profligate spending, and woke cultural indoctrination,” Roy stated.
Roy praised DeSantis as a conviction candidate whose background and Christian faith shaped his populist conservatism.
“That leader is Florida Governor Ron DeSantis. Governor DeSantis is a man of conviction — a man who puts his faith in God first as a dedicated husband and father. He grew up a blue collar kid who worked hard, got a great education, and used it immediately to serve his country,” Roy continued.
Roy even took an implied shot at Donald Trump praising DeSantis for standing up to Drs. Fauci and Birx during the COVID pandemic.
Roy said Fauci and Birx were “foolishly empowered” during COVID which Roy meant was one of Donald Trump’s biggest mistakes in office.
“He loves America unapologetically but loves freedom and the rule of law even more, with the courage to fight for both. As Governor, he unequivocally has made Florida stronger and freer. Economic growth and prosperity in Florida surged upon his firm rejection of the devastating COVID mandates foisted upon us by foolishly empowered Washington bureaucrats. He stared down woke corporate America and higher education. And he stood with Texas in defense of our border – sending a message to elites in Martha’s Vineyard that they cannot ignore the human and economic toll of open borders,” Roy declared.
Congressman Roy’s endorsement is a validator that conservatives can trust that Ron DeSantis is an anti-establishment outsider who will take on the left and drain the swamp.
