Florida Governor Ron DeSantis recently held a gathering at South Florida’s Hard Rock Hotel and Casino to express his gratitude to approximately 100 of his most dedicated supporters and donors.

During the event, he also hinted at potential future plans.

DeSantis’ hopes for a presidential run in 2024 were dashed, but insiders within his campaign network are already sensing his interest in a future bid in 2028, a time when former President Donald Trump is not expected to be in the race.

Since his return to Tallahassee, DeSantis has remained connected with his key political supporters, prioritized immigration matters beyond Florida by deploying additional National Guardsmen to the southern border, advocated for federal constitutional amendments to establish term limits for Congress, and actively endorsed culture-war initiatives that initially propelled him to national prominence within the Republican Party.

Supporters of DeSantis view these actions, coupled with the recent event at the Hard Rock, as strong indications that the Florida governor is once more considering a run for the presidency.

The governor is currently restricted by term limits and is unable to seek re-election.

According to three attendees, DeSantis did not openly address the possibility of running for president again during the weekend’s events.

However, he expressed his belief that two highly anticipated Florida ballot measures, one regarding abortion protections in the state constitution and another concerning the legalization of recreational marijuana, would not succeed this autumn.

He discussed the changes driven by conservative forces at the state level since assuming office, drawing parallels to the developments at the federal level.

During the main event on Saturday evening, DeSantis engaged in a conversation with Representatives Chip Roy of Texas and Thomas Massie of Kentucky.

These two congressmen were among the select few who supported DeSantis’ presidential campaign.

They both accompanied him during his early campaign days, attending events where DeSantis presented his plans for different policies that he would later base his presidential run on.
