MIAMI.- Donald’s campaign Trump attacked a memo from Ron’s electoral organization DeSantis, where the former president was criticized and his candidate was promoted as the favorite for the nomination of Republican Party.
The memo, sent Saturday to potential donors, insists that DeSantis has the potential to win the primary and, as well, the presidential debate next Wednesday in California, a majority Democratic state.
This event, the second in the election race with a view to 2024, will confront DeSantis with other Republicans who have emerged as serious threats in the polls, where the political leader of Florida is currently in second place.
Trump announced his absence from the debate, choosing instead to travel to Detroit to address active and former members of the auto union, amid a United Auto Workers strike that has now continued for several days.
DeSantis campaign manager James Uthmeier said in the memo that DeSantis is “the only candidate who can beat Joe Biden and Trump” and presented him as the best long-term choice among the candidates.
This statement prompted a swift response from Trump’s team, which called the message “a desperate cry for help from a candidate who is languishing in the polls.” This statement prompted a swift response from Trump’s team, which called the message “a desperate cry for help from a candidate who is languishing in the polls.”
Steve Cheung, Trump’s spokesman, stated that “President Trump is crushing him (DeSantis) in the polls because of primary election. He called DeSantis’ campaign a “fantasy far from reality.”
A recent Fox poll showed that, despite the accusations against him, Trump extended his lead over other candidates with 60% support. The study, conducted between September 9 and 12, involved 1,012 voters.
Meanwhile, some national political experts see DeSantis as a latecomer and look interested in the campaign of Vivek Ramaswamy, a pharmaceutical billionaire from Ohio who is gaining ground in the polls.
