DeSantis Offers His Own ‘Total Bunk’ on Rift with Trump

“Donald Trump’s a friend of mine. He is proud when people do well, and it’s not just me, but obviously he’s a Florida resident, and he appreciates the job that we’ve done. He’s told me that many times, not only with helping with the election, but just how we govern the state.”

— Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) told Fox News that reports that his relationship with former President Trump has become frayed are “total bunk.”

The Republican Party’s Proven Losing Strategy

“You’d better be spending a lot more time developing an economic agenda that benefits working people than re-litigating a lost presidential election. The question is, how long will it take the Republicans to figure out that driving out heretics rather than winning new converts is a losing strategy right now?”

— GOP pollster Whit Ayres, quoted by the New York Times
