Donald Trump is headed to Florida to stump for Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL).
Rubio is in a tight battle with Val Demings and Trump is hoping to give him a big push two days before election day.
This would normally be something that DeSantis would also attend, but that will not be the case.
Donald Trump is livid with DeSantis for endorsing Joe O’Dea.
While O’Dea won his GOP primary, he is very, very moderate.
He has also stated that he would not be stumping for Trump, the opposite actually.
O’Dea stated he will work against Trump, possibly even backing a Democrat if it comes to that.
After Trump ripped O’Dea and refused to endorse him, DeSantis came in and put his name behind O’Dea.
Now there is a major Trump event, where everyone will be, and DeSantis will not be there.
A Republican consultant stated, “You’ve got the Sunday before Election Day totally hijacked by Trump parachuting in on Trump Force One taking up the whole day.
“No Republican could go to a DeSantis event that day. None. And DeSantis won’t be here? This is big.”
A Trump staffer denied any issues between the two, however.
He stated, “This is an event President Trump is holding as part of a series of stops he is making for Republican Senate candidates.
“It came after he and Senator Rubio spoke directly.”
DeSantis is in great shape and this should not hurt him, as we don’t expect to come out and openly distance himself from DeSantis, but this is an issue moving into 2024.
