Freedom Caucus Congressman Preemptivley Endorses Ron DeSantis for President

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has seemingly scored his first Congressional endorsement and he hasn’t even launched his campaign.

On Wednesday, Texas Rep. Chip Roy preemptively endorsed the Florida Governor for president

“The next President of the United States must be a vibrant and energetic leader with the faith, vision, and courage to chart a new course,” Roy said in an email to supporters from his campaign account on Wednesday.

“America needs a leader who will truly defend her and empower the people against the destructive force of unrestrained government and corporate excess, profligate spending, and woke cultural indoctrination.”

“That leader is Florida Governor Ron DeSantis,” Roy said.

The Texas lawmaker has become one of the most vocal hardline Republicans in the House, and his decision to endorse DeSantis is a notable rejection of former President Trump.

Rep. Roy broke with Trump ahead of and on Jan. 6, 2021, criticizing his move to pressure Republicans to reject the 2020 presidential election results.

The Texas congressman praised DeSantis’s “faith in god” and his being a “dedicated husband and father.”

DeSantis’s “non-politically correct” stances and rejection of “woke corporate America and higher education,” Roy argued, are also reason to support him.

The House Freedom Caucus member did not directly mention Trump but pointed to disappointing 2022 midterm election losses that were widely attributed to Trump-boosted candidates falling short.

“[DeSantis] has also proven his ability to win at the ballot box time and time again. When other Republicans were faltering in key races, Governor DeSantis provided a positive vision for the future with prudent, conservative action. The result was crystal clear: Republicans enjoyed sweeping, historic performances statewide,” Roy said.

Roy appears to be DeSantis’s first official Congressional endorsement for president. Several other Republicans have endorsed Trump, while Rep. Ralph Norman endorsed former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley.

  1. The only thing is that Governor DeSantis is NOT God’s chosen and everyone who backs anyone else besides President Trump is looking for a great rude awaking, because God chose President Donald J. Trump before he was conceived and born and had his life already preordained for such a time as this. So expect a great disappointment when President Donald J. Trump is voted back in office, for the ones that didn’t back President Donald J. Trump.

  2. DeSantis would make a great Vice Pres. for Trump, but one state is not the entire USA and Trump showed what a great business mind he has. I will only vote for Trump.

  3. James O. – How do you know God chose President Trump even before he was conceived? Did God actually tell you that? I don’t think so unless you are a reincarnation of Elijah or another great prophet. My guess is that Trump’s massive pride/ego, self-centered and immoral life style probably puts God off as much as it does millions of Americans. Put me down as wanting any strong Republican leader (I’m looking at a minimum of 10 in that group) other than Trump who will be a two time loser if he wins the nomination; then we’re stuck with another 4 years of WOKE leadership. I don’t think our great Republic can survive that shock!

  4. Trump is and WILL be the nominee for the Republican Party in 2024… The reality is that it doesn’t matter who throws their hat into the ring for the WH … Trump will smoke them like a cheap cigar. Again. I have nothing against DeSantis, other that it is NOT his time. He will have his time… afterwards.

  5. I totally agree ! Trump is the one to be president! he needs to finish the great things he started! He is the best ever. DeSantis needs to stay where he is because Florida needs him! Also Ron has plenty of time for presidential expatations since he is young. This is NOT his time! Trump is ahead of him in the polls also’

  6. I will definitely vote for DeSantis in the primary. He is a fine,courageus leader. I am absolutely disgusted by Trump’s pettiness, ego and self-centeredness. Character counts! Oh, I forgot to mention Trump’s childishness.

  7. People need to check out the skeletons in DeSantis’s closet! Something about him is rubbing me the wrong way. He speaks good and says the right things but they all do until they get in power. We know Trump and what he can do and has proven to be America First! Not enough known about DeSantis! Trump 2024!

  8. When a building is on fire, the experienced fireman is needed. Those who feel he can’t win apparently think Biden won in a fair election, and they have a lot of Republican company. If the 2024 Election is properly monitored, the loud Democrat and negative Republican and RINO voices will not have their soothsaying confirmed, and just like Drs. including Govt & Health officials discouraging citizens with their COVID fear talk and mandates, the Press will be
    asking “How could we have gotten it so wrong?” If Ron has what you think, then why not spend your energy urging a Trump/Desantis team rather than urging the experienced fireman to retire? Wake up and smell the SMOKE, THE WHOLE BUILDING IS BURNING!!!!!!!!!

  9. I really like DeSantis and I think he will make a great president, but I wish he would wait four years! If he runs this time, it will hurt the Republicans. I voted for Trump twice and he WAS great for America and did a lot of really good things for our country. But he is so childish and DIVISIVE! Stay off Twitter and stop attacking fellow Republicans. He has too much pride and ego! He is hated by so many leftists, I’m afraid he might lose to Mush Mind (God, help us!)!
