Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis didn’t mince his words when asked why he should be the 2024 Republican nominee, saying that he would wreck leftism in the United States.

“Why is right now the time for Ron DeSantis to run for president?” Fox News host Joey Jones asked DeSantis Monday morning.

“Because everyone knows if I’m the nominee, I will beat Biden and I will serve two terms and I will be able to destroy leftism in this country and leave woke ideology on the dustbin of history,” DeSantis replied.

“At the end of the day, I’ve shown in Florida an ability to win huge swaths of voters that Republicans typically can’t win while also delivering the boldest agenda anywhere in the country,” he continued. “And I think there’s a reason why the legacy media is attacking me more than they’re attacking anybody else, because I think they realize that if I’m successful in winning the Republican nomination, we’re going to bring it home in the general election.

“And I pledge to Republican voters, if you nominate me, I will be taking the oath of office on January 20th, 2025, on the west side of the Capitol. No excuses. No more excuses about why we can’t get it done. We need to get it done and I will get it done,” DeSantis concluded.

  1. This guy will flame out big time before the Convention and likely on the Super Tuesday primary day in March 2024. There have been “leftists” around for 200+ years in the American political system and they will be around long after Ronnie and Donnie are gone.

    First time I agree with GHD

  3. But most Americans, including most Republicans, are more concerned with stable prices, low unemployment, and not letting China and Russia dominate the world. Destroying those you disagree with is seen by most Americans as somewhat un-American (which is why Biden and Trump are so unpopular that there only hope of winning is to run against each other).

  4. Gadolhaforah,
    He means the fanatic control on the govt that the woke leftists have.
    Obviously, ppl can have whatever beliefs they want. That’s not the point

  5. 125ST: Outside of a few cities, the “far left” “woke” progressives do NOT have whatever you mean by “fanatic control” of the government……As both parties have learned in the past 24 hours, neither the “far right” nor “far left” can dictate outcomes and the rational center has reemerged with respect to the debt ceiling legislation. Indeed, the “far left” seems extremely upset with President Biden, Mayor Adams, Govs Hochul and Newsom, etc.
