Ron DeSantis Puts His Presidential Campaign On Hold


Florida Governor and GOP presidential candidate Ron DeSantis has announced that his campaign will be put on hold in order to focus on the impacts of Hurricane Idalia.

DeSantis appears to be putting all of his attention on preparing for the arrival of the hurricane, which is expected to make landfall on Wednesday.

The governor reminded reporters of how he had previously tackled similar situations during his election campaign last September when Hurricane Ian struck Florida.

He did not specify how long he would pause his presidential campaign, but it is clear that every effort must be made to ensure Florida citizens are safe from any harm caused by Hurricane Idalia.

As a result of this impending hurricane, a state of emergency has been declared in 46 out of 67 counties in Florida.

In addition to this, DeSantis spoke about the importance of coming together during times like these rather than worrying too much about political campaigns.

During a press conference Tuesday morning, he said: “There’s time and a place to have a political season, but then there’s a time and place to say that this is something life-threatening… So that’s what I’ve done on all these different issues and that’s what I’ll continue to do; when you have these situations you got to step up.”

Despite all efforts by Ron DeSantis over the past few weeks, including reorganizing his team and cutting staff costs – support for his campaign has significantly dropped from 23 percent in July according to the Yahoo News/YouGov poll released just prior to the first GOP debate – down 12 percent overall.

Although Vivek Ramaswamy increased four points (8%) since last month he still lagged behind DeSantis by 4 points while former President Donald Trump held an incredible lead at 52%.

The gap between Trump’s lead compared with DeSantis widened from 25 points in July up 40 points now – making it even harder for DeSantis’ bid towards becoming president come 2024.
