Get Ready for Gov. Ron DeSantis to Steal the Show at the Debate!
Well folks, we’ve got ourselves a showdown! The candidates are gearing up for their big debate, and let me tell you, all eyes are going to be on Gov. Ron DeSantis. As the top-ranking candidate attending the debate, DeSantis is going to be center stage, soaking up that spotlight. But don’t you worry, he’s ready to take on all the shade that will surely be thrown his way.
According to DeSantis’s campaign spokesman, Andrew Romeo, every candidate is going to be gunning for him because they know he’s the only one who can beat Sleepy Joe Biden. I mean, come on! Former President Donald Trump dropped over $20 million to take down DeSantis because he knows he’s a force to be reckoned with. That’s a ringing endorsement if you ask me!
Sure, some people like former Obama adviser David Axelrod think DeSantis has the most to lose from this debate, but his campaign is focused on the positive. Just look at the numbers! A recent poll found that 61% of respondents either have DeSantis as their first or second choice, or they’re seriously considering him. He’s right on the heels of the front-runner, Trump himself. So who really needs a breakout moment here? It’s those other candidates who are barely registering on the polls, that’s who!
Now, I know DeSantis’s overall polling numbers have taken a bit of a dip since he entered the race. But hey, that’s just a sign that there’s room for improvement, right? Some Republican strategists see this as an opportunity for DeSantis to shine. They say he’s the most popular Republican among conservative activists in Iowa. And you know what? I believe it! This guy knows how to speak to the heartland and fight for our conservative values.
But let’s not forget about the underdogs in this debate. They’ll be looking for their breakout moment, hoping to make a name for themselves. One name to watch out for is former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley. She could be the dark horse of the evening, ready to steal the show.
Now, there’s been some talk about DeSantis following a memo from his super PAC that advises him to attack Vivek Ramaswamy and defend Trump. But some critics, like Hofstra University professor Tomeka Robinson, think he should do the opposite. She says DeSantis needs to establish what makes him different from the rest of the pack. And you know what? I agree with her! The non-Trump candidates are bringing up the rear, so they better show us why we should even consider them.
Now, one thing making headlines about this debate is the fact that Trump is skipping it. But let’s not make a big fuss about it. Trump’s absence is nothing new. Just ask Bob Dole and George W. Bush, who also skipped some primary debates in their time. Besides, who knows if Trump will join in later, just like Bush did when he was drawn onstage by a John McCain surge.
And let’s not forget about the location of this debate – Wisconsin. This state is going to be a battleground in the upcoming election, and both parties want to come out on top. Heck, the Democratic National Committee is even hosting a press conference in Milwaukee on the same day as the debate. They’re feeling the pressure! But let’s face it, Wisconsin has had a complicated relationship with Trump. It turned red in 2016 but swung back to blue in 2020. So, it’ll be interesting to see how these candidates play their cards in the Badger State.
As we gear up for this debate, there are a few questions we need to ask ourselves. What do these candidates bring to the table? Is it their ideology, their electability, their background and skills, or their appeal to small donors? It’s these questions that we need answers to. And let me tell you, folks, Gov. Ron DeSantis is ready to deliver.
So buckle up, grab some popcorn, and get ready for the showdown of the century. Gov. Ron DeSantis is about to steal the show and show the world why he’s the best candidate to lead our great nation. Let the games begin!
