Marjorie Taylor Greene: ‘DeSantis Should Stay Put As Governor’

Published on

With much speculation looming over a potential Ron DeSantis run for President, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), a close ally of former President Trump, says Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) should stay on as governor.

Greene suggested in a Twitter thread on Friday that losing a “strong Republican governor” early because political consultants are urging them to run for president will hurt the country in the long run because it leaves their states weak and vulnerable to poor leadership or Democratic control.

“If anything we need governors like [Georgia’s Brian] Kemp, DeSantis, and hopefully Kari Lake more than 8 yrs,” she said, referring to the GOP nominee in Arizona, whose race has yet to be called.

Greene’s comments come after DeSantis won a resounding victory in his reelection bid this week, defeating Democrat Charlie Crist by almost 20 points. Republicans in Florida were widely successful, with Sen. Marco Rubio (R) winning his own reelection race and Republican candidates winning most House races.

Another of Trump’s GOP House allies, Rep. Elise Stefanik (N.Y.), the conference chair, on Friday preemptively endorsed him for president in 2024 ahead of a “big announcement” he’s teased for Tuesday.

“It is time for Republicans to unite around the most popular Republican in America, who has a proven track record of conservative governance. Poll after poll shows that President Trump would defeat any Republican challenger by massive margins, and would beat Joe Biden if the election were held today,” Stefanik said.
