Republikein DeSantis stelt zich kandidaat voor het presidentschap in 2024 (2)
November 9, 2022 - Republican Ron DeSantis has won a second term as governor of Florida in a landslide victory, fuelling speculation that DeSantis will run for president in 2024.
DeSantis, the 44-year-old governor of Florida, stormed to victory in a landslide. With 96 per cent of precincts reporting, DeSantis led Democratic candidate, Charlie Crist, by a 20-point margin, a significant improvement on the three-point margin Donald Trump beat Joe Biden by in the state just two years ago.
DeSantis is considered by many to be the most likely candidate to supplant Trump as the Republican candidate to run for president in 2024.
Trump has warned DeSantis against running for president in 2024, saying doing so would harm the Republican Party.
He also threatened to release unflattering information about the 44-year-old, without providing details.
