(ConservativeHub.com) – Both Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and former President Donald Trump are heading to Iowa soon, AP News reports. These will be their first trips this year to Iowa, which is notably the first place in the country where voters cast their ballots in primary elections.
While DeSantis has not yet announced what his plans for 2024 are and whether or not he is going to try and win the White House, he is heading to Davenport, Iowa to push his book, “The Courage to be Free” which was released at the end of February. DeSantis will be going through Davenport and Des Moines on March 10 for his book tour.
According to Trump’s campaign, he is also going to be heading to Davenport on March 13 to discuss his education policy. This will be his first visit to Iowa since making his campaign announcement in November about placing his third bid on the White House.
Gloria Mazza, who leads the Republican party in Polk County, has said that this is very exciting and it is like heading from “ground zero” directly “to the moon,” according to AP.
The two men are believed to be moving closer to direct competition, even though DeSantis has not launched a presidential campaign and has stated that he is currently focused on Florida until the end of the Legislative session in May. Regardless of this, Trump has repeatedly attacked DeSantis verbally over the last several months. DeSantis, on the other hand, has repeatedly avoided responding to Trump’s attacks and has stated that he is focused on his work.
