Jealousy is a nasty thing, and that is what I think Kinzinger is suffering from right now.
After what DeSantis did in Florida, it is clear he is the top dog currently holding office and the future of the Republican Party.
If you want a young face that will push the MAGA agenda, he is the man, just not for Kinzinger.
Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) does not have to like DeSantis to admit that he is the future of the party.
His opinion of the person means little, quite frankly, but that is what he is basing his opinion on.
Anderson Cooper asked him, "Governor Ron DeSantis obviously won big in Florida, including getting a lot of Latino votes. Do you think, I mean, do you see him as the future of the Republican Party?"
He responded, "Yeah. Well, I don't.
"But I think, you know, certainly he's probably in the lead right now, kind of a bit of a front-runner status.
"Again, I think what we're going to see over the next week is, you know, how does Donald Trump pivot from this, because he's certainly not going to take his loss. He's going to try to throw DeSantis under the bus.
"He's certainly going to go after [House GOP Leader Kevin] McCarthy.
"And if he's able to do that successfully, and he has been over the last number of times, then again, Ron DeSantis, is going to have a kind of a short-lived victory here."
Good indicator for DeSantis: @RepKinzinger says he's not the future of the Republican Party.

Now, I don't know about you, but that sounds like sour grapes to me.
Sour grapes from a man that thought by standing up to Trump, he would be elevated in the party, not tossed out.
