Democrats Fear DeSantis More Than Trump: Report

  • Some Democrats say that if President Joe Biden does run for reelection, he needs to actively target Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and stop boxing himself into a race against his predecessor.
  • Donald Trump is all but certain to enter the race, but with the Jan. 6 hearings coverage and potential lawsuits looming, DeSantis is the Republican to watch, some Democrats say.
  • “To me, DeSantis is the scarier prospect,” one Democratic strategist said. “He’s a smarter version of Trump, he’s way more strategic, and he doesn’t have a hundred lawsuits at his feet.“
