(TALLAHASSEE, FLA) — Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is writing his autobiography chronicling his life in public service, possibly signaling a run for president in 2024.

The Republican Florida Governor was just re-elected by a landslide and will now publish his story in February. It is being seen by some political analysts as a manifesto, and another step towards his potential White House bid.

The autobiography, called ‘The Courage to Be Free: Florida’s Blueprint for America’s Revival,’ is expected to cover key highlights of DeSantis’s life before and after holding public office.
The book will tell his story ‘growing up in a working-class family, playing in the Little League World Series, working his way through Yale University and Harvard Law School, volunteering for the Navy after 9/11 and serving in Iraq,’ according to the publisher.

His book will also highlight on his marriage to former news and TV host Casey DeSantis, her battle with breast cancer, and the three children they share together.

Besides discussing his life before politics, publishers say DeSantis will also write about the critical issues that brought him to the center of the debate over the future of our country. DeSantis is one of many possible presidential candidates who have written or are writing books ahead of 2024.

Meanwhile, a poll earlier this month weighing up potential 2024 candidates found DeSantis is now seven points ahead of former president Donald Trump who has already declared he is running for a third time.
