Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga), a close ally of former President Trump, believes that Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R), who is facing rumours that he could challenge Trump for the Republican nomination in 2024, should continue serving as governor. Greene is a member of the Republican Party in Georgia.
In a thread on Twitter that he posted on Friday, Greene did not directly mention DeSantis’ possible interest in running for president in 2024. However, he did say that the loss of a “strong Republican governor” too soon because political consultants are pressuring them to run for president is harmful to the country because it weakens their states and makes them more susceptible to poor leadership or to being taken over by Democrats.
“If anything, we need governors like [Georgia’s Brian] Kemp, DeSantis, and hopefully Kari Lake for more than 8 years,” she said, referring to the Republican nominee in Arizona, whose race has not yet been called. “If anything, we need governors like [Georgia’s Brian] Kemp, DeSantis, and more than 8 years.”
Greene’s remarks were made following the results of this week’s election, in which Republican Ron DeSantis handily defeated Charlie Crist, the Democratic candidate, by a margin of about 20 points. Republican candidates in Florida were victorious in the majority of house races, and incumbent Republican senator Marco Rubio was also victorious in his reelection battle.
Trump, on the other hand, has been subjected to criticism from members of his party for the candidates he backed losing in important Senate, House, and gubernatorial races. Some party members have even directly blamed Trump for the dismal performance of the party.

The Republican Party had planned to make significant gains in both the House of Representatives and the Senate, but it appears like they will only have a slim majority in the House and may not take control of the Senate at all.
Greene said that success on the state level and success at the national level are not comparable, even though some political strategists have speculated that DeSantis’ achievements and Trump’s failures could help DeSantis mount a bid for the presidency in 2024.
“Unfortunately, people are misinformed or misled themselves if they believe that the same outcomes from Republican states can be instantaneously reached in one presidential election,” she said. Greene stated that the “strongest reddest states conceivable” and a Republican “fighting force” at the federal level is necessary for moving in the correct direction moving ahead.
She stated that it is too soon to place blame on anyone for the results, as votes are still being counted in several races, and other election issues, such as redistricting and new state election laws, hurt Republicans and prevented a red wave from occurring. She said it is too early to cast blame on anyone for the results.
On Friday, another one of Trump’s Republican allies in the House, Rep. Elise Stefanik (N.Y.), who serves as the conference chair, backed him in advance for the presidency in 2024. This comes ahead of a “major announcement” that Trump has teased for Tuesday.
“The moment has come for Republicans to come together behind the Republican candidate who is the most popular in the United States and who has a successful track record of conservative government. According to Stefanik, “poll after poll reveals that President Trump would defeat any Republican candidate by large proportions, and if the election were held today, he would beat Joe Biden.”
