With Florida Governor Ron DeSantis finally entering the Presidential race after months of buildup and speculation, the Republican primary is officially in full swing. Given he’s got a significant mountain to climb in the polls and has the charisma of a soup can, it should come as no surprise that he’s trying to think of ways to appear tough and make some headlines. Naturally, the left was the target.

Martin Pengelly with The Guardian writes:

“Predicting two terms in the White House should he defeat Donald Trump for the Republican presidential nomination next year, Ron DeSantis said he would go on to “destroy leftism in this country”.

“I will be able to destroy leftism in this country and leave woke ideology in the dustbin of history,” the Florida governor told Fox News.

DeSantis declared his long-expected run last week, in a glitch-filled appearance on Twitter with its owner, Elon Musk.

The widely panned launch followed a long phony war period in which DeSantis toured early voting states and launched a campaign-oriented book but nonetheless fell further and further behind the former president in primary polling…”
