Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis introduced this week he’s operating for reelection and isn’t contemplating “anything beyond” the governorship proper now.

DeSantis made the remarks in an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity, who introduced up the 2024 presidential election. 

“I’m not considering anything beyond doing my job,” DeSantis stated on “Hannity” Thursday night time. “We’ve got a lot of stuff going on in Florida. I’m going to be running for reelection next year and we’re also working on a lot of things in the state beyond just the governor’s race.”

DeSantis left the opportunity of a 2024 run open, saying it’s “way down the road. It’s not anything that I’m planning for.”

The governor stated he’s centered on Florida proper now and has his eye on different elections within the Sunshine State in addition to the gubernatorial one.


“We’ve got school board races and I want to make sure people are not supporting critical race theory,” he advised Hannity, “making sure parents have the ability to send their kids to school the way they want to. There’s a whole lot of huge issues.” 

DeSantis, an outspoken ally of former President Trump, has raised a nationwide profile in recent times and is purported to be a high contender to run for the Republican Party’s 2024 presidential nomination. 

Recent polling has proven him on par with Trump, who has stated he’s more likely to run. 

Trump has been teasing a potential run for some time, telling Fox News Digital final month it’s “getting to a point where we really have no choice” however for him to run for president once more. 

DeSantis had not but by Friday filed the required paperwork for reelection, FOX 13 of Tampa Bay reported, citing the Florida Department of State’s Candidate Tracking System web site.
