Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis appeared as a guest on Maria Bartiromo’s Sunday Morning Futures show earlier today.
Maria wasted no time in asking the tough questions. She cornered Gov. DeSantis on his stalled-out campaign.
DeSantis has been unable to make any significant impact on President Trump’s commanding lead in the GOP presidential primary.
The Florida Governor dismissed claims of a stalled campaign, attributing them to media narratives aimed at undermining his candidacy.
“I’m wondering what’s going on with your campaign?” Maria asked. “There was a lot of optimism about you running for president earlier in the year, but here’s this weekend’s headline from the Politico playbook: “FAILURE TO LAUNCH — Florida Gov. RON DeSANTIS’ campaign to topple DONALD TRUMP has stalled.”
“We are way behind, says a top DeSantis PAC official, sounding the alarm.”
“What happened?” she wondered.
DeSantis confidently stated that the media is well aware of his ability to defeat President Biden and implement policies that they might disagree with.
He also emphasized the significance of building grassroots support in early primary states, highlighting the recent launch of the “Mama’s movement” initiative alongside his wife in Iowa. He believes that parents, especially mothers, will play a crucial role in both the primary and general elections.
“Maria, these are narratives. The media does not want me to be the nominee. I think that’s very, very clear. Why? Because they know I’ll beat Biden. But even more importantly, they know I will actually deliver on all these things,” DeSantis said.
Bartiromo then brought attention to a recent poll that showed DeSantis trailing former President Donald Trump, who was leading with 56% support compared to DeSantis’s 22%.
In response, DeSanits acknowledged Trump’s popularity but focused on addressing the issue of corruption within the justice system. He pledged to end the “weaponization” of government agencies, advocating for the appointment of a new FBI director on day one.
“I think one of the reasons that Donald Trump is in the lead, because of the corruption and the unfairness of our justice system,” DeSantis claimed.
