Ron DeSantis has yet to find a means of reviving his struggling presidential campaign.
The Governor addressed the Trump-supporting crowd at the California GOP Convention on Saturday, expressing his disagreement with one of his state’s residents.
“I understand that one of my residents was here earlier saying that he turned Florida red…”
“I just wish if he was the one that turned Florida red, that he wouldn’t have turned Georgia and Arizona blue.”

Ron DeSantis later in the day informed Bill Maher that President Trump had lost the election and that it had been a misstep to campaign for Kari Lake in Arizona.
"But you campaigned for election deniers in 2022. This I do not forgive. Kari Lake who said Biden is an illegitimate president"
"Now she's attacking me so maybe I did make a mistake there."

Ron DeSantis appears to be taking a different stance than the majority of Republicans, as a survey revealed that two-thirds of them believe voter fraud helped Joe Biden get elected.
Additionally, 60% of voters believe cheating was involved in the midterm elections and 54% anticipate election fraud will be a factor in 2024.
Despite this, DeSantis is still making lighthearted comments about Arizona and Georgia.
