Invitations for the event, which reportedly will take place Wednesday at 4 pm, according to The Messenger, have been kept quiet, with the dress code described as "dressy casual resort wear." It has been said that the paperwork for DeSantis' campaign will already have been submitted once "the festivities" commence at 5 pm.
One individual allegedly noted that his invitation to the event was verbal but was reluctant to say more as operatives in the DeSantis campaign have apparently been "leak-testing" by purposefully sharing phony dates and information to see if it gets leaked, likely in an effort to see test the trustworthiness of those around them.
Recently, it seems that DeSantis has been further gearing up to officially begin a presidential run. Earlier this month, moving trucks were seen beside the Florida GOP building on Monday, only for a Republican official to later confirm that the vehicles were being used to switch DeSantis’ political operation to a new location.
DeSantis is the only other Republican candidate who has polled consistently in the double digits, but still falls short of the support that Trump has garnered.
A TV ad from Trump’s campaign posted last month went after the Florida governor, seemingly suggesting he should not be making a White House run in the first place.
The video features a part of DeSantis’ victory speech in November 2018, showing him saying, "I’d like to thank our president for standing by me when it wasn’t necessarily the smart thing to do."
"You’re welcome, Ron," the narrator states in response. "Unfortunately, instead of being grateful, DeSantis is now attacking the very man who saved his career. Isn’t it time DeSantis remembers how he got to where he is?"
Meanwhile, some reports say that DeSantis is courting various conservative donors for support, casting himself as a person who can continue the Trump agenda while also forgoing any type of drama or theatrics. The Florida governor and his senior campaign staff anticipate that around 30 percent of Republican voters will stay behind Trump no matter what he says or does, bringing the campaign concerns if the primary is crowded, according to Bloomberg.
There are many debates surrounding which potential GOP nominee would be better poised to take on the Democrats in the 2024 presidential election. Some people wonder if DeSantis will capture the Trump base, including political commentator Rich Baris, who opined that if American voters who largely supported former President Trump "don’t show up, DeSantis would need an epic collapse of Democrat turnout to win."
