Governor DeSantis is writing a book about his accomplishments related to the pandemic and otherwise in the state of Florida and already people are speculating that this is a sign he’s going to run, according to Newsmax.
The book will be released at the end of February and will be called “The Courage to Be Free: Florida’s Blueprint for America’s Revival”
Here’s more from Newsmax:
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is publishing a book hailing his COVID-19 pandemic response and leadership, a sign some believe points to a 2024 GOP primary challenge to former President Donald Trump.
“The Courage to Be Free: Florida’s Blueprint for America’s Revival” is being released by HarperCollins on Feb. 28.
“No American leader has accomplished more for his state than Gov. Ron DeSantis,” the book’s pitch reads. “Now, he reveals how he did it.”
The hardcover version is available for pre-order on Amazon at $28.99.
“He played baseball for Yale, graduated with honors from Harvard Law School, and served in Iraq and in the halls of Congress,” the synopsis continues. “But in all these places, Ron DeSantis learned the same lesson: He didn’t want to be part of the leftist elite.
“His heart was always for the people of Florida, one of the most diverse and culturally rich states in the union. Since becoming governor of the sunshine state, he has fought — and won — battle after battle, defeating not just opposition from the political left, but a barrage of hostile media coverage proclaiming the end of the world.”
The book will delve into DeSantis’ COVID-19 policies that permitted Florida to grow as many northern blue states and California saw mass outmigration amid lockdown policies.
“When he implemented evidence-based and freedom-focused COVID-19 policies, the press launched a smear campaign against him, yet Florida’s economy thrived, its education system outperformed the nation, and its COVID mortality rate for seniors was lower than that in 38 states,” the synopsis continues. “When he enacted policies to keep leftist political concepts like critical race theory and woke gender ideology out of Florida’s classrooms, the media demagogued his actions, but parents across Florida rallied to his cause.
One thing interesting about this article from Newsmax is that they quote ZERO people suggesting this is a sign that DeSantis is running.
In the first paragraph they even say that the book is “a sign some believe points to a 2024 GOP primary challenge to former President Donald Trump”. But they NEVER say who these people are that believe this. Nor do they elaborate on it.
I’m sure there are people who really do think this and that might even include some of you. But it’s pretty shotty writing in my opinion to lead with something and NEVER mention it again in the entire article.
