Ron DeSantis announced this week as expected.
His campaign started off with a stumble when his Twitter spaces crashed, which his campaign is now trying to capitalize on.
After that stumble, however, he has had the pedal the metal, and he just got a lot of people's attention with one particular pledge.
Wray is Gone
When Donald Trump appointed Wray, the consensus was that he would be a solid pick to fix what Comey had destroyed.
Today, Wray is quite possibly considered to be worse than Comey and a complete and utter failure.
DeSantis stated that he would address that right out of the gate, reports the Washington Examiner.
When asked about Wray staying on as Director if he was elected, DeSantis responded, "No, I would not keep Chris Wray as Director of the FBI. There'll be a new one on day one."
DeSantis also addressed the idea of having an Attorney General that would actually do his job and not worry about the left-wing media in this country attacking on a daily basis.
He stated, "You're going to get attacked by CNN. And you've got to wear that as a badge of honor. You can't try to please polite society because otherwise you'll just get captured by the institution itself.
"And I think the DOJ and FBI have lost their way. I think that they've been weaponized against Americans who think like me and you. And I think that they become very partisan," reports Fox News.
I give DeSantis credit for addressing the elephant in the room, openly stating that the FBI and DOJ are no longer "independent," as everyone always claims, and that is just a brutally honest truth.
Biden can sit there and say that his DOJ is independent all he wants, but we have seen the actions taken and the bias.
DeSantis stated, "They answer to the elected president of the United States. So as president, you have a responsibility to be involved in holding those agencies accountable, clearing out people who are not doing the job, and making sure that they're doing the people's business, and they're not abusing their authority."
DeSantis has an excellent record on both crime and education, so these are areas that he will also be able to tout during the election.
Now that he is in, we are going to start to see some heavyweight punches thrown at him, and I know he has to swing back, but I would love for him to stay on message and keep addressing the issues rather than getting into the mud.
If he does that, he has a chance as this progresses. If he plays Trump's game, he will get clobbered.
