Republican Congressman Endorses DeSantis For President

  • Rep. Chip Roy, R-Texas, announced Wednesday that he is endorsing Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, a Republican, for president.
  • “It’s time for Ron DeSantis to be President of the United States,” Roy, the policy chair of the Freedom Caucus, said in a campaign email obtained by The Daily Signal.
  • DeSantis is considered one of the top 2024 contenders, though he has not yet announced a presidential campaign. The Florida governor has drawn the ire of former President Donald Trump, who heavily critiqued DeSantis as recently as Tuesday, comparing him to Republicans Paul Ryan and Mitt Romney and joking about calling DeSantis “Tiny D,” according to the Daily Caller.
