Texas Republican Makes 2024 Announcement – Leading Conservative Chip Roy Just Endorsed Governor DeSantis

What’s Happening:

We are about a year away before the first primary voters cast their ballots. But the race seems to be heating up pretty fast. Trump is firing on all cylinders, trying to keep his lead ahead of several other Republican contenders.

But this early in the race means any unexpected development can change the course of the election. Donald might be the frontrunner today, but that might not be the case for long. Because a top Republican in the House just made a startling announcement. Trump won’t like this one bit.

From Daily Wire:

Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) announced Wednesday that he was endorsing Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis for president in 2024 despite the fact that DeSantis has not yet launched a bid for the White House…

The lengthy statement made no mention of former President Donald Trump and instead focused on DeSantis’ strengths and why Roy believes DeSantis is the right man for the job.

Woah. Republican Chip Roy is a leading conservative in the House. He’s a prominent Tea Party figure and member of the Freedom Caucus. He released a long statement endorsing Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis for president in 2024.

Roy said that the next president needs to be “a vibrant and energetic leader with the faith, vision, and courage to chart a new course.” It seems he is convinced DeSantis is that leader, after seeing his amazing track record in Florida.

The Texas Republican praised DeSantis’s success saying he has made Florida, “stronger and freer.” It’s no question that DeSantis has been a bold and effective governor. He defied the odds and the liberal elite to keep Florida thriving over the last few, rocky years for America. There is a reason so many have fled blue states to go there.

DeSantis has successfully flipped Florida, making it a strong, red state. Many have hoped this governor would throw his hat into the 2024 ring. While DeSantis has not officially announced a campaign, he has been busy traveling all across America this year.

He has met with big donors in various states and has even popped up in early primary-voting states. DeSantis just released a book about his leadership in Florida, which soared to the best seller’s list.

But Roy appears to be the first notable Republican to openly endorse him, even before he began his campaign. Once DeSantis does announce a run, don’t expect Roy to be the last.

Key Takeaways:

  • Chip Roy endorsed Gov. Ron DeSantis for president in 2024.
  • Roy praised DeSantis’ successful leadership in Florida.
  • DeSantis, while very popular, has not announced a campaign yet.
