UPDATE 6.3.22: Florida Governor Ron DeSantis continues to push the conservative agenda in his state. His strong governing approach has earned him respect among conservatives around America, and he has pulled even with Donald Trump in the betting odds for who will occupy the White House in 2024. A.G. Gancarski reports for Florida Politics:
Gov. Ron DeSantis has pulled even with former President Donald Trump in one prediction market tracking the 2024 Presidential Election.
The PredictIt platform shows the Florida Governor having achieved parity with Trump this week in terms of the candidate most likely to occupy the White House following the 2024 cycle.
The latest “Yes” price for the election of DeSantis or Trump is priced at 28 cents for each potential Republican candidate. At the close of five of the seven most recent days tracked, both men settled at that same price.
UPDATE 5.19.2022: After fighting for freedom through two long years of COVID lockdowns, Governor Ron DeSantis has no intention of letting up. When the leaked draft of a Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade caused violent protests outside the homes of the justices who made up the majority in the ruling, Governor Desantis immediately went into action. Intimidating judges may be a normal occurrence in third world banana republics, but not in the United States, or any rules-based nation. DeSantis and Republican Florida legislators immediately took action, banning such intimidation tactics and authorizing the police to arrest violators. DeSantis commented on the new law:
“Sending unruly mobs to private residences, like we have seen with the angry crowds in front of the homes of Supreme Court justices, is inappropriate. This bill will provide protection to those living in residential communities, and I am glad to sign it into law.”

In a recent news conference, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) announced he would introduce an “executive function” against COVID vaccine passports, which he previously called a “terrible idea” that wouldn’t get support in Florida.
Governor DeSantis in Tallahassee on COVID Vaccination:
We always said we wanted to provide if for all but mandate it for none. And that was something that, while it was advised to take particularly if you’re vulnerable, we were not going to force you to do it.
It’s completely unacceptable for either the government or the private sector to impose upon you the requirement that you show proof of vaccine to just simply participate in normal society.
Politicized Bureaucratic Overreach:
- Mandating mask wearing.
- Preventing the media from seeing cages packed with children at the southern border.
- Blocking Ted Cruz from filming them.
- Calling for vaccination passports.
