GOP 2024: DeSantis Hits Iowa For His First Big Campaign Event Since The Launch (VIDEO)

Written by Wes Walker on May 31, 2023

Trump held a big lead in the polls when DeSantis finally wrapped up in Florida’s legislative session and joined the race. Now Florida’s governor is making his move to see if he can make up any ground.

Not counting the official launch with Elon on Twitter, this was his first real kick at the can. Either way, this is his first big event on camera where he makes the case for why he should be the GOP’s pick for Presidential Nominee in 2024.

Today we have been highlighting campaign speeches/videos from various leading nominees from the GOP race. This article features a video from Ron DeSantis.
