Clay: Democrats Already Terrified Of Potential DeSantis Presidential Run In 2024

Videos by OutKick

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has Democrats shaking in their shoes, and not surprisingly, they are now trying to invent ways to take him down. That was the message delivered by OutKick founder Clay Travis, who says DeSantis very well may be one of the top candidates to become president in 2024.

“And Democrats are terrified that Ron DeSantis is going to be incredibly difficult to beat if he runs,” Clay says. “If he runs, and I think there’s a very good chance he will … they are already starting to tear him down. “

Clay points to the “60 Minutes hit piece” as one example of the liberal media’s fear of DeSantis. Then there was MSNBC’s Joy Reid, who may have even outdone 60 Minutes when it comes to making up stuff — as Reid shamelessly tried to connect DeSantis to a sex-trafficking ring.

“This is a sign of how nervous Democrats are about Ron DeSantis,” Clay says. “Because here is what they know deep down if they have any semblance of intelligence — Donald Trump would have wiped the floor with Joe Biden if COVID didn’t happen. Let me repeat that: The only reason Joe Biden got dragged across the finish line was because of COVID. …

“And Democrats, even though they’re trying to claim otherwise, know that if Ron DeSantis is the nominee, if Republicans end up with a decent nominee in 2024, that nominee is going to crush Kamala Harris. Because identity politics and cancel culture are wildly unpopular, and in 2022, Democrats are going to lose the House, and they’re going to lose the Senate. … And as a result, we are setting up what will be an absolute ass-kicking in 2024.”

Democrats likely agree, and that’s likely what all this DeSantis noise is all about.

  1. something ridiculous is coming. Obiden can barely function and dude in public.

    that presser with Japan friday makes it clear, that America is being scammed like i never thought i would see.

    Obiden has an earpiece for someone to tell him what to say. he scratches his ear or side of his head to communicate or trigger the earpiece.

    Kamala can’t run in 2024 without participating in Obiden’s removal.

    Desantis needs to win re election in florida next year and Trump needs to get back in the WH in 2024.

  2. 1. DeSantis needs to stay in Florida, for Florida’s sake. It could turn blue in a New York minute.

    2. Why does everyone think anybody will beat Biden, or any RAT? Trump, AS PRESIDENT, couldn’t keep them from stealing the 2020 race. How is any Republican going to get in the White House with the current “voting” system in place?

    • 1) I would like to keep DeSantis but I think that depends on if Trump makes another run. If not, I wouldn’t mind DeSantis running for Prez. Also, not worried about FL turning “blue”. FL already leans conservative and has refugees moving in by the thousands from shithole states, plus a larger % of Latinos are voting red.

      2) Good question. The “fortification” (as Time Magazine wrote) is real in many of these swing states. Fraud aside, the last election was a logistical nightmare. If any Republicans in these swing states can show a backbone and stand for fair/efficient elections then Harris is in trouble.

  3. A little off topic but considering what the media has already done to Trump.

    If CNN lied about Trump and produced propaganda to alter the election. Then an important question needs to be asked.

    Were the poll numbers that CNN produced designed to suppress voter turnout?
    Telling people an election isn’t close will suppress turnout of the side that is losing. Why were the polls so far off in Bidens favor?

    Again, CNN has already been caught on tape admitting that they produced propaganda. The New York Times stated that “normal” press coverage rules didn’t apply.

    Here is an article in Time were more proof of a coordinated effort by the media to decide who would win the election,
