PORTSMOUTH, OH – Gov. Ron DeSantis is fluttering and flying here and there and everywhere these days. When, oh when, is he going to cut the bouquet?
On average, DC’s cherry blossoms bloom around the last week of March into the first week of April. But it varies year to year based on weather conditions, so it can also be a little before or after that period.
Journalist Matt Vespa for Townhall echoed the rumblings of Axios in wanting DeSantis to declare his 2024 presidential candidacy as well.
Via a recent article at Axios:
“Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is aggressively testing the limits of running an unofficial presidential campaign, ramping up national engagements that leave little doubt about his plans for 2024.
Why it matters: DeSantis and former President Trump are the GOP frontrunners, but their approaches to campaigning have so far been starkly different.
Trump launched his comeback bid just days after the 2022 midterms; DeSantis sees no urgency and isn’t expected to formally declare until June.
On Friday, he hosted more than 100 of his top supporters and donors for a three-day retreat just down the road from Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort.
Tomorrow, DeSantis begins a national book tour in which he’ll headline fundraisers and give speeches in Texas, California, Alabama and elsewhere.
The intrigue: DeSantis will not be attending this week’s Conservative Political Action Conference, where 2024 rivals Trump and Nikki Haley are scheduled to appear.
He has also yet to set foot in early-primary states Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina.”
I don’t ya DeSantis is buzzzzzzing up a storm.

Does a new book signal a 2024 presidential run?
U.S. Senator Tim Scott (R-South Carolina) launched his book, “America, a Redemption Story: Choosing Hope, Creating Unity” in August 2022. In this powerful memoir, Scott recounts formative events of his life alongside the inspiring stories of other Americans who have risen above hardship and embodied the values that make our nation great. Scott is the first African American to be elected to both the U.S. House and the U.S. Senate.
“If You Want Something Done: Leadership Lessons from Bold Women,” is a 2022 book by Nikki R. Haley. Former Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley recently announced she is running for president in 2024.
Michelle Obama released her newest book, “The Light We Carry: Overcoming in Uncertain Times” in 2022. However, she denies wanting a seat at the presidential candidacy table. But others aren’t so sure.
Gov. Ron DeSantis recently launched his new book, “The Courage to Be Free: Florida’s Blueprint for America’s Survival.” The Florida Blueprint is a simple formula: be willing to lead, have the courage of your convictions, deliver for your constituents, and reap the political rewards. This is a blueprint for America’s revival. We’ve shown it can be done.
Does my book theory need further proof? I don’t think so.
Perhaps, akin to a buzzing bee, DeSantis is awaiting the right time for the blooming of the cherry blossoms before he goes after the nectar to make the prized honey.
