Even though he has decided to suspend his 2024 presidential campaign, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is reportedly already taking steps towards his next political endeavor.

DeSantis has been actively maintaining connections with individuals who backed his presidential bid, such as donors and key figures in states with early primaries.

According to sources familiar with the situation, he is currently exploring strategies to uphold his prominence and impact on a national scale, which may involve backing candidates in congressional elections.

According to a source familiar with the planning, he is expected to resume fundraising for his political operation in the near future.

He made a surprise appearance in South Carolina shortly before the state’s primary, causing a brief moment of confusion among former President Donald Trump’s advisers, whom DeSantis endorsed but has not communicated with since withdrawing from the race.

His recent actions seem to be focused on maintaining his political base and support among Republicans. DeSantis has not rejected the idea of running for president again as early as 2028.

DeSantis’ comments during the call, where he criticized Trump and his team, sparked a strong reaction from the former president’s advisors and supporters.

The public lashing was a stark reminder to the Florida governor of the potential impact on his political future based on his relationship with Trump.

DeSantis is determined to maintain his influence within the GOP, regardless of Trump’s fate.

He has experimented with new methods to increase his audience, such as sharing self-made videos online where he discusses current political topics or humorously includes his kids.

He is leading a nationwide effort to push for federal term limits through a constitutional amendment, the main issue that brought him to South Carolina before last week’s primary and one that could offer additional reasons to continue his travel outside the state.

DeSantis is anticipated to once more establish a state political committee in Florida capable of raising unrestricted amounts of money.

It was the method DeSantis utilized to raise the $83 million in initial funding for the super PAC backing his unsuccessful bid for the presidency.

All eyes are now on the race between Trump and Biden in 2024, but DeSantis seems far more focused on shaping the narrative for a potential run in 2028, when it is far more likely he won’t once again have to face former President Trump in the GOP primary.
