Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis still is not officially a 2024 presidential candidate. But he acts like one more each day.
Following last week’s trip to Iowa, where the governor participated in a discussion forum with his counterpart, GOP Gov. Kim Reynolds, DeSantis’ schedule is filling up with trips to New Hampshire, Ohio, and Michigan.
Local Republican clubs in those states have announced DeSantis appearances during April.

For example, the Midland County GOP group in Michigan says DeSantis will be a guest at their “Dave Camp Spring Breakfast” on April 6.
The Republican Party in Butler County, Ohio, pushed news about a “Lincoln Day Event” on April 13, with DeSantis identified as a special guest speaker, according to county Chairman Todd Hall.
On April 14, DeSantis is expected to speak at the New Hampshire state GOP’s “Amos Tuck Dinner” in Manchester, considered that party’s largest fundraising event.
New Hampshire is significant because it is the first state in the U.S. to hold a primary in each presidential election.
All of the others mentioned above are among the first in the nation to hold presidential primaries.
On April 21, DeSantis also will visit Maryland to speak at the Heritage Foundation’s 50th leadership summit.

Locally, the Hillsborough County GOP announced that DeSantis would speak at the Lincoln Day Dinner on Friday, March 31.
“Conservatives are craving a bold and visionary leader who gets things done — and that’s exactly what Gov. Ron DeSantis has accomplished in Florida,” Heritage President Kevin Roberts told Fox News.
DeSantis also committed another presidential candidate act last month, releasing a book, “The Courage to Be Free,” on Feb. 28.
“I was geographically raised in Tampa Bay,” DeSantis wrote in “The Courage to Be Free,” his recent memoir, “but culturally, my upbringing reflected the working-class communities in western Pennsylvania and northeast Ohio — from weekly church attendance to the expectation that one would earn his keep. This made me God-fearing, hard-working, and America-loving.”
