According to a report on Politico on Wednesday, Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has not requested former President Donald Trump’s support in his bid for reelection in 2022, Fox News informed.

In November, DeSantis, a 43-year-old Republican with enormous popularity, is up for reelection in Florida.

DeSantis’ refusal to win Trump’s support may be seen as a power move given that he has been extensively discussed as a potential rival to Trump in 2024.

According to a source in the former president’s political sphere, Trump hasn’t ruled out becoming engaged in the contest for governor of Florida as the state’s August 23 primary approaches.

Regardless of whether Trump enters the race, DeSantis has constantly shied away from questions about whether he intends to run in the 2024 presidential race.

His victory in the 2024 straw poll at the yearly Western Conservative Summit in Colorado in early June, however, sparked some questions.

Trump garnered 67 percent of the vote, falling short of the Florida Republican’s 71% victory.

The straw poll was centered on an endorsement method that let participants back numerous candidates.

DeSantis defeated Trump in a straw poll for the second year in a row.

According to polls, DeSantis will likely win re-election in November by a margin of seven points over Charlie Crist, the likely Democratic contender and the former governor of Florida.

The governor signed a law banning abortions after 15 weeks in April, one of many socially conservative measures that the DeSantis administration has pushed for.

After his administration discovered they contained aspects of critical race theory, the governor also prohibited a number of textbooks from being used in the state’s public schools.

After DeSantis approved the Parental Rights in Education Act, which forbids teachers from discussing gender identity or sexual orientation with students in kindergarten through third grade, the action was taken a few weeks later.
