Ron DeSantis will publish a new book in February as his popularity soars

Ron DeSantis has written a new book chronicling his life in public office, as his popularity soars and speculation grows he will run for president in 2024.

The Republican governor of Florida, who won a landslide re-election this month, will publish his new book in February. It is seen by some political analysts as a manifesto and another step towards his potential bid for the White House.

The autobiography, titled “The Courage to Be Free: Florida’s Blueprint for America’s Revival,” is set to cover key moments in DeSantis’ life.

The book will tell his story “growing up in a working-class family, playing in the Little League World Series, working his way through Yale University and Harvard Law School, volunteering for the Navy after the 9/11 and serving in Iraq,” Fox News said.

DeSantis’ popularity has skyrocketed over the past two years. In a midterm election that saw results go worse than expected for Republicans, he was a standout winner.

He was re-elected to a second term as governor of Florida with a landslide, beating Democrat Charlie Crist with nearly 60% of the vote – a further sign of Florida’s Republican wave.

Meanwhile, a poll earlier this month assessing the potential 2024 nominees found DeSantis is now seven points ahead of former President Donald Trump.

The autobiography, titled “The Courage to Be Free: Florida’s Blueprint for America’s Revival,” will be released in February.

The YouGov poll was the first poll to look at the 2024 election cycle — as well as being the first since February 2016 to suggest that Trump’s dominance over the GOP is weakening. He revealed that 42% of Republicans and GOP-leaning independents now favor DeSantis over Trump to be the party’s standard bearer in 2024.

DeSantis’ push has been attributed to his assault on what he calls “woke” values. In his victory speech at his campaign headquarters, he said, “Florida is where the revival is going to die,” saying Florida voters had “rewritten the political map.”

He also supported Florida’s so-called “Don’t Say Gay” Act and the Stop WOKE Act – both of which proved controversial and sued, but proved popular among Republicans, especially those of Trump’s MAGA camp.

DeSantis’ autobiography will be his second book and will be published Feb. 28 by Broadside, the conservative arm of HarperCollins Publishing – which is owned by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp.

In a statement shared via Fox News (which, like HarperCollins, is part of Rupert Murdoch’s media empire – albeit under different umbrella companies) – Broadside said the book “will go into critical issues that have brought [DeSantis] at the center of the debate on the future of our country.

“He shares his thinking from when he was fighting back against COVID mandates and restrictions, critical race theory, woke corporations” and what Broadside describes as “partisan media legacy.” The statement adds that the book will detail the “bold and substantial political achievements” of DeSantis.

In a statement to Fox News, DeSantis said Florida has established “a plan for governance that has produced tangible results while serving as a rebuke to entrenched elites who have pushed our nation into the ground.”

Many in the Republican Party fear that if Trump and DeSantis (pictured together in 2019) face off in the 2024 presidential primaries, the party could tear apart

DeSantis has yet to make an official announcement regarding a potential White House offer. He has previously shrugged off talk of a presidential election in 2024, instead focusing on his re-election as governor, which will see him remain governor of Florida until 2026 – unless he chooses to step down.

Either way, he’s become a major face of the Republican Party, and the possibility of him running appears to rattle Trump – who announced his own 2024 candidacy earlier this month. “He could get seriously injured,” Trump told reporters when asked about the possibility of facing DeSantis for the Republican nomination.
