DeSantis’ Statement Towards Bragg’s Twisted Campaign Finance Laws

DeSantis told a group of Republicans near Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, that Bragg has twisted campaign finance laws to bring charges against Trump.

“That’s when you know the law has been weaponized for political purposes,” DeSantis said during a section of his speech criticizing “progressive” law enforcement in general. Following the announcement of Trump’s indictment, he stated that Florida would not cooperate in any potential extradition process.

DeSantis is one of many Republicans who have backed Trump in the aftermath of the indictment, including those planning to challenge him for the GOP presidential nomination in 2024, including Nikki Haley and Mike Pence.

Though DeSantis has not yet declared a presidential run in 2024, he is widely regarded as Trump’s main rival in the race.

According to a recent Quinnipiac University poll, Trump obtains 47% of support from Republican and Republican-leaning voters out of a list of 15 Republicans who have declared or are anticipated to run for president in 2024, followed by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis at 33%. Mike Pence, a former vice president, gets 5%, and Nikki Haley, a former UN representative, gets 4%. The poll found that less than 2% of voters supported the other contenders.

Haley, who declared her candidacy for president in February, claimed in a Fox News interview that Bragg’s case is being made for “political points” and “revenge” against Trump, while Pence, who is still considering a run, termed the indictment “unprecedented.

Even Republicans who have criticized Trump have condemned the indictment.

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, who was defeated in the 2016 Republican primaries by Trump’s scathing attacks, noted that prosecutors had previously dismissed the case against Trump on these allegations.

Bush tweeted on Saturday, “Bragg’s predecessor did not take up the case.” “The Justice Department did not take up the case, and Bragg initially stated that he would not take up the case. This is very political, not a matter of justice. Let the jury be the voters in this case.”
