2024 ELECTION/ENDORSEMENT/RON DESANTIS: “In an interview with The Wall Street Journal on Monday [July 25, 2022], Mr. Trump said he would vote for Mr. DeSantis’s re-election in November but quickly turned to his role in helping Mr. DeSantis four years ago. ‘If I didn’t endorse him, he wouldn’t have won,’ Mr. Trump said.

‘I get along with Ron very well,’ he added, before mentioning ‘a very good poll this weekend’—an unscientific straw poll of young conservatives at the Tampa conference that showed him beating Mr. DeSantis by a wide margin [in the 2024 election].”
