DeSantis targets Biden in swing state Pennsylvania, says Democratic Party 'dead' in Florida


"It's been a massive defeat for the Democratic Party," the Florida governor said. "They did not want to see Florida go red. They threw everything but the kitchen sink to stop us. And yet, we have left the Democratic Party for dead in the state of Florida."

The Florida governor has been walking a political tightrope for months as he refuses to officially declare his candidacy for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination.

At the same time, he has butted heads with both the Biden administration and former President Donald Trump's campaign — both of whom view him as a rival for the presidency.

In speeches this year, the governor has pitched his numerous conservative policy victories in Florida as a roadmap for the entire nation.

Sources in DeSantis’ wider orbit have said that any presidential campaign launch would come in the late spring or early summer, after the end of Florida’s current legislative session.

However, the governor’s recent stops in the early-voting states of Iowa and Nevada and a trip next month to New Hampshire are sparking more 2024 speculation.

DeSantis said earlier this week that his state "will not assist" in any extradition request by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg amid what he called "questionable circumstances" while slamming the charges against Trump as "un-American" and a "weaponization of the legal system to advance a political agenda."

The former president and 2024 Republican presidential candidate was indicted by a Manhattan grand jury on Thursday after a years-long investigation by the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office.
