Sending migrants up north could aid DeSantis in 2024 against Trump

While former President Donald Trump has been embroiled in legal fights, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has emerged as a Republican leader on immigration. Recently, he moved migrants to Martha’s Vineyard.

  • Source says DeSantis moving migrants is “almost entirely about 2024.”
  • Another source said DeSantis is “out-Trumping Trump.”
  • A new USA TODAY/Suffolk University Poll shows DeSantis leading Trump in Florida.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis recently sent planes full of migrants to Martha’s Vineyard, but his real target may have been 2024. 

The timing of his recent political maneuver comes as Republicans need to motivate their voters to the polls in the midterms, after losing some ground to Democrats over the abortion issue, and also as DeSantis vaults past former President Donald Trump as the top GOP presidential candidate in Florida.
