Similar to Former President Donald Trump, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis got a special treatment at UFC 273 over the weekend. The rockstar treatment that DeSantis received was similar to what you would see for the fighters.
DeSantis has made a name for himself in the conservative community by bucking up against the federal government during the Covid-19 lockdowns, the southern border crisis, and the “Don’t Say Gay” bill. All of those issues have been created by President Joe Biden’s administration and the Democrat party as a whole. You can see DeSantis enter the stadium to move toward his seat here.
Fans were giving him high fives, yelling and cheering, and treating him as the political all-star that he deserves. The greatest part of the entrance was DeSantis’ seat right next to Dana White, the president of the UFC.
The entrance opens the door further for a DeSantis 2024 presidential run. Though Trump has unofficially announced that he’s running again in 2024, DeSantis is going to be a force to reckon with and the two may end up teaming up after the primary regardless of who gets more votes.
In all honesty, there should be a shift toward younger politicians and DeSantis would be a fantastic choice. DeSantis has a unique ability to push back against liberals and make it look good. DeSantis is very relevant in politics right now and will be for the remainder of Biden’s presidency and without a run for president and Florida has a two-term limit for governor. DeSantis was elected in 2018, which means after his two terms he’ll be ineligible to run for office in 2026. That would mean that DeSantis would have to wait until 2028 to run for president and his chances of winning could be far lessened by the time lapse.
On the other hand, if DeSantis decides to run in 2024, he either wins the primary or doesn’t. There isn’t a risk of lessening the political presence that DeSantis has in the country. A presidential run may actually give DeSantis more of a political presence and the ability to do greater things across the country if he doesn’t win the primary such as a federally appointed position and a better chance to win in the future.
