A Republican congressman who is a member of the Freedom Caucus has officially endorsed Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) for president in 2024, snubbing former President Trump.
Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) put out an email Wednesday endorsing “Ron DeSantis for President of the United States,” even though the governor hasn’t announced yet.
“The next President of the United States must be a vibrant and energetic leader with the faith, vision, and courage to chart a new course,” Roy began.
“America needs a leader who will truly defend her and empower the people against the destructive force of unrestrained government and corporate excess, profligate spending, and woke cultural indoctrination,” he added.
“That leader is Florida Governor Ron DeSantis,” Roy said.
He tweeted out his endorsement with the hashtag: “Never Back Down.”
This is a developing story.
