Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) bid for the GOP nomination for president is going so terribly that the man once touted as “DeFuture” has resorted to telling donors that he has a real shot of winning the U.S. Virgin Islands caucuses to justify staying in the race.
DeSantis invested time and a lot of money in Iowa. After a distant second place finish behind Donald Trump and narrowly defeating Former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley in the caucuses on Monday, it is unclear where his campaign goes from here .
It doesn’t appear he’s on track to win or effectively compete in any remaining state in the GOP primary.
But, according to Puck.News, DeSantis has his sight set on one territory where he hopes his campaign will come out on top–The U.S. Virgin Islands.
On a call with donors the morning after his distant second place in the Iowa caucuses DeSantis’ team “presented a plan that would take them through Super Tuesday,” on March 5, “tout[ing] his chances at winning the U.S. Virgin Islands,” Puck reported.
The 2024 U.S. Virgin Islands Republican primary caucuses will be held on February 8. A grand total of FOUR delegates are up for grabs.
