DeSantis Scores Endorsements From Two High-Profile Iowa Republicans

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis scored two high-profile endorsements this week from Republicans in Iowa ahead of his expected 2024 presidential campaign.

The endorsements from Senate President Amy Sinclair and House Majority Leader Matt Windschitl come as DeSantis is scheduled to appear at two events in the first-in-the-nation caucus state over the weekend.

Sinclair, who is the top Republican woman in Iowa’s legislature, praised DeSantis in an interview with the Des Moines Register, saying that the 44-year-old governor was “head and shoulders” above the other Republican contenders.

“He’s proven that he can do this work,” she said. “He’s proven that he can get reelected and can continue to do that work even in the face of opposition. And I can’t think of a better person to serve as our president and really, honestly move America forward.”

The Register reported that Windschitl, a Marine veteran and hardcore Second Amendment advocate, said that DeSantis was a leader who is focused on the future instead of the past.

“We need a leader that’s looking forward towards the future, not a leader that’s looking in the rearview mirror and potentially going to be vindictive towards other people,” he told the newspaper. “We need somebody that’s accountable to the people that has proven in their state that they can do this job and take that same prosperity and spread it throughout America.”


DeSantis picked up another key endorsement last week in New Hampshire from House Majority Leader Rep. Jason Osborne (R-Auburn).

“As the 2024 presidential primary begins in New Hampshire, Republicans are looking for a strong, capable challenger for Joe Biden who can win and lead our country forward,” said Osborne. “Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida is emerging as a top contender, and for good reason. With his drive, energy, and proven record of success, I believe DeSantis is exactly the leader America needs today.”
