( – Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) during an appearance at the annual Feenstra Family Picnic, hosted by Rep. Randy Feenstra (R-Iowa) urged the Republican party to reject the “culture of losing” that has become so prominent in recent years.

DeSantis in his speech stated that in order for the Republicans to be successful in 2024 they would need to be a “positive alternative” to President Biden and turn the election into a referendum on the Biden administration’s performance. He added that there is “no substitute for victory” and that the party needed to completely “reject the culture of losing” which has taken over in the past few years.

While DeSantis has not joined the presidential race yet, he is widely expected to be preparing to place a bid on the White House soon. As part of this preparation, he has also made multiple stops in early-voting states like Iowa and South Carolina. Following the end of his state’s legislative session, DeSantis stated that he was going to be making a decision about his political future soon.

While DeSantis is not an official candidate in the 2024 Republican primary, according to most recent polls he is the potential challenger that could take on former President Donald Trump who is currently in the lead.

Trump has received a lot of criticism from many GOP members who have pointed out that he lost the House in 2018, the Senate, and the White House in 2020 and endorsed candidates in the 2022 midterm elections that did not perform well in their general elections. While DeSantis did not outright call out Trump, he too appears to have been playing with the narrative about Trump having a bad track record with elections.
