Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis told a reporter that everyone needs to take a breath and relax after being asked whether a “civil war” was breaking out in the Republican Party over whether to support him or Donald Trump in 2024.

“Governor, do you hear there may be a civil war brewing in the GOP, people having to choose between you and Donald Trump?” DeSantis was asked at a press conference.

“No. Look, we just finished this election, okay? People just need to chill out a little bit on some of this stuff,” DeSantis responded. “I mean, seriously. We just ran an election.”

DeSantis pointed out that there is still a Senate runoff race in Georgia to deal with before even discussing another election and pointed to widespread Republican wins in his home state of Florida.

“I know around the country Florida was kind of the biggest bright spot,” he said. “I was not so bright in many other parts of the country. It was a substandard performance given the dynamics that are at play.”

  1. It is over a year until the first primary. The best recent analogies at this point in the campaign, Hillary Clinton was the certain nominee in 2008, and Jeb Bush was ready crowning in 2016. It appears very unlikely that Trump will end up as nominee, meaning the real question is whether he’ll be kingmaker (probably by endorsing the likely winner, since he likes to be a winner) or spoiler (by attack Republicans and encouraging Republican voters and causing them not to support the party in 2024). Most the leading Republicans are people allied with Trump in the past, which will facilitate him “delivering” his base when the time comes. Obviously if a “never Trumper” (e.g. Larry Hogan, Mitt Romney, Liz Cheney) becomes the front-runner, that would be different.
