DeSantis Reboots Campaign in New Hampshire

Proceeding under the guise of a reboot, the Ron DeSantis presidential campaign brought its signature brand of awkwardness to New Hampshire. 

 The Florida governor, trailing former President Donald Trump in the polls, touted his economic policies inside a warehouse on Monday. 

“Our country is in decline right now,” DeSantis told onlookers at a sparsely attended event in Rochester, N.H., ignoring a government report showing the U.S. economy grew by a rate of 2.4% during the second quarter. 

Instead, DeSantis scapegoated China, mused over abolishing the IRS and proposed a lifestyle from a bygone era.

“We want to be a country where you can raise a family on one sole income,” he said. 

The campaign’s pivot to pocketbook issues comes as DeSantis continues to take heat over his comments about the “benefits” of slavery, while simultaneously being ridiculed as “DeSanctimonious” by Trump. 

The “juvenile insults,” DeSantis replied. “I think that helps me.” 

Meanwhile, DeSantis did little to capitalize on Trump’s latest indictment, aside from saying he would move trials out of the DC “swamp.”

“Your state has more J6 defendants than any other,” tweeted Brandon Straka, a gay political activist, convicted for his role in Jan. 6, 2021 attack on the U.S. Capitol. “They have been targeted by this DOJ exactly the same as Trump or any other high-profile Republican. They needed help. None of them have heard from you or any other elected official in Florida.”
