Murdochs Souring on DeSantis

“They are transactional and can smell a loser a mile away,” said one Fox insider, to Rolling Stone.

“Since the beginning of the Biden presidency, the powerful Murdoch family has favored the Florida governor in the 2024 presidential primary, largely due to a conviction that DeSantis would be a more electable, and less chaotic, evolution from Donald Trump. But in recent weeks, the Murdochs have grown increasingly displeased with the DeSantis campaign’s perceived stumbles, lackluster polling, and inability to swiftly dethrone Trump. … They have also seriously questioned whether the governor is capable of defeating Trump in the 2024 GOP presidential primary.”
