Republicans need a ‘positive alternative’ to Joe Biden

SOO SENTER — Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, standing on the precipice of a likely presidential election, told Iowa on Saturday that if Republicans want to win in 2024, they will reject a “losing culture” and look to the future. “We need to have a positive vision,” he said.

“Both Florida and Iowa are showing strong leadership and can defeat the left in this country with bold policies,” he said. “But there is no substitute for winning. We must reject the losing culture that has pervaded our party in recent years. We have to show the strength to win.”

This is seen as leading the current 2024 presidential candidate as the front-runner despite losing to Democrat Joe Biden in the 2020 election and endorsing the candidate he lost in the 2022 midterm elections. It is an unspoken denunciation of former President Donald Trump.

The comments came as President Trump was planning to hold a duel event in the nation’s first caucus state. Mr. DeSantis was scheduled to make another stop in Cedar Rapids, and Mr. Trump was scheduled to attend an outdoor rally in Des Moines for the evening, but Mr. Trump canceled the event due to possible bad weather. A tornado warning was in place for Polk County, extending it until 7 p.m. when he was scheduled to speak.
