Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis is officially seeking a second term. He made the announcement that he’s running for re-election on Monday morning after filing the official paperwork.
NEW: It’s official – @GovRonDeSantis tells @FoxNews he’s running for re-election.
“I’ve only just begun to fight,” seems to be the campaign mantra. He said it to Fox and at numerous other events this month. https://t.co/9SYmGQ4tst

DeSantis’ announcement comes as his odds of becoming the Republican nominee for President increase.
Currently, former President Donald Trump is the GOP favorite, but should he decided not to run, DeSantis, at least for now, is next in line.
Trump ally Roger Stone says he’ll run for Governor in an effort to take votes away from DeSantis unless the Governor pledges to finish out his second term should he win re-election.
