Reports are emerging that Florida’s Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis wants Arkansas Governor Sarah Huckabee Sanders to be his running mate when he announces his 2024 presidential campaign.
As Slay News reported, DeSantis is expected to jump into the Republican presidential race next week after the state’s legislative session ends.
A new report has now shed some light on who he wants as his running mate.
DeSantis “is determined to recruit Arkansas Governor Sarah Huckabee Sanders as his running mate before making a formal announcement on his 2024 presidential bid, sources close to his campaign” reportedly told RadarOnline.
The outlet noted further that “insiders claim” DeSantis made his decision to go after President Donald Trump’s press secretary after she became the first female governor of the red state in 2022, succeeding Asa Hutchison, who has also jumped into the 2024 GOP primaries.
“He really only has one strong choice: Sarah,” the source told the outlet.
