  1. @ Old Voter, you do realize that come the Election in November 2024, DeSantis is no longer our Governor right? He can learn a lot from Trump. Trump might not have a friendly personality but he was a great President.

  2. It’s in the news today that Ramaswamy accepted a scholarship from Paul Soros (George’s brother) in 2011. He said he needed the money to attend Yale Law School. However, that same year, 2011, he had a reported income of over 2 million dollars and an income of over 1 million the 3 previous years.

  3. Please do not propose or support the selection of Governor DeSantas as a running mate for Trump. Serving with Trump would just drag an honorable man down. Besides, we need him here.

  4. So we can assume from the areas of town she was shot in.. and the lack of any information about her at all.. that the victim was African American. I don’t know why you don’t think these things aren’t important. But they are.

  5. DeSantis is too embedded in the system to fit as the Trump VP. Let’s keep DeSantis at home for the next couple of years.

    I’d like to see Tim Scott as the VP. Actually, 3 or 4 of the current candidates could do well as the VP.

  6. I still say that DeSantis is not mean enough to be President yet. He really should consider sitting down with Trump and find away to be his pick for VP. Learn all he can from Trump and then run for President in 2028.
