The 2024 campaign field is heating up…

Top Trump campaign challenger Ron DeSantis is gaining steam as the former President’s legal troubles overshadow his active campaign.

Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt (R) is choosing to endorse DeSantis for president and Trump could not be less thrilled by the choice.

“Governor DeSantis is a strong conservative and principled leader, and I am proud to endorse him for president,” Stitt said in a statement.

“As fellow Governors during COVID, DeSantis did not surrender states’ rights and individual liberties over to groupthink,” the governor continued. “In this election cycle, Oklahomans will remember that DeSantis was one of the few who never backed down in the face of adversity because DeSantis operated with dogged conviction and shared our values for a limited government and free country.”

The Oklahoma governor campaigned with DeSantis over the weekend in the Sooner State.

“Governor Kevin Stitt of Oklahoma, who I didn’t know very well, called me before his last election to say he was in BIG trouble and very much needed my Endorsement. I LOVE Oklahoma & won 77 out of 77 Counties, something that never happened before,” the former president said on his social media platform Truth Social.

Former presidential contender Mitt Romney (R-Utah) also won all 77 counties during the 2012 election.

Ronald Reagan was next with 56. Anyway, I gave him my endorsement, he immediately went way up, and won. Now, despite the fact that DeSanctimonious is losing to Biden, & me, Stitt just endorsed him. Wow! He disliked ‘the Indians’ & my great Senate pick!” the former president continued, appearing to reference Stitt’s working relationship with Indigenous tribes within the state.

DeSantis also received an endorsement from former Rep. Jim Bridenstine (R-Okla.), Trump’s former NASA administrator, and 20 state lawmakers last week.

  1. Kevin Stitt is an example why the Republican Party will fail to beat the Democrats in the coming election. While Trump is the only man (yes, I said man) who has the strength of character to reverse the Democrat efforts to destroy America yet Stitt represents the descenders. With the exception of a few good conservative politicians the party is corrupted by RINOs who are always willing to compromise with the Democrats.
