Florida Governor Ron DeSantis received a key endorsement for president in 2024, even though Desantis has not yet announced a bid for the White House.
“It’s time for Ron DeSantis to be President of the United States,” Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX), policy chairman for the House Freedom Caucus, said in a press release on Wednesday.

“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,” Roy said in his endorsement. “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. That leader is Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.”
Roy described DeSantis as a “man of conviction,” with a “style of no-nonsense government,” who has “also proven his ability to win at the ballot box time and time again.”
DeSantis is expected to announce a presidential campaign sometime after Florida’s current legislative session ends on May 5.
Meanwhile, former President Donald Trump, who has described DeSantis as his most serious challenger, is ramping up attacks on the Florida governor.
The Trump campaign is preparing opposition research into DeSantis, per Politico, hoping to paint him as “another member of the establishment and compared to Jeb Bush.”
