The theory in Republican circles has been that Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) was the “clever” or “more intelligent” version of Donald Trump and would be a much better at running for president in 2024. Given Trump’s mounting legal problems and scandals, having someone like DeSantis would be less complicated for the Republican Party.

But according to Gabriel Sherman writing for Vanity Fair, Republican Party insiders are starting to question whether DeSantis would be brave enough to take on Trump.

One source revealed that DeSantis has led donors “to believe he will not run if Trump does.” Others, however, said he could “walk into the presidency in 2028 without pissing off Trump or Florida.”

The comment comes after the debate DeSantis had with former Gov. Charlie Crist (D-FL), who asked DeSantis whether he would commit to filling out his term. DeSantis refused to answer. The assumptions about DeSantis come from his behavior for the past year after he’s traveled the country and helped promote other Republican candidates. It’s something that presidential candidates typically do.

Now, he’s reconsidering, according to at least four prominent Republicans. He recently hinted to donors he wouldn’t make the challenge against the former president.
