Ron DeSantis will publish his autobiography “The Courage to Be Free” in February

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (right) is set to release an autobiography, The Courage to Be Free: Florida’s Plan for America’s Renewalearly next year, which “will focus on the critical issues that have led [DeSantis] at the center of the debate on the future of our country.

Broadside, the wing of HarperCollins that “specializes in conservative non-fiction,” will publish the book about DeSantis’ life, including his family and his wife’s battle with cancer. According to reports, he will detail the governor’s roots — “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 9/11 and serving in Iraq.”

The publisher added that the book will also focus on “critical issues” that have put the governor in the spotlight “about the future of our country.”

“He shares his thinking from when he was struggling with COVID mandates and restrictions, critical race theory, [and] woke up businesses,” according to the editor.

“What Florida has done is establish a plan for governance that has produced tangible results while serving as a rebuke to the entrenched elites who have driven our nation into the ground,” DeSantis said in a statement, according to Fox News. . “Florida is proof that we the people are not powerless against these elites.”

However, this isn’t DeSantis’ first foray into book publishing, as he authored Dreams of Our Founding Fathers: First Principles in the Age of Obama in 2011, before its passage to the American Congress.

DeSantis’ autobiography is set to be released on February 28, 2023, and comes amid growing speculation of a 2024 presidential bid, though he hasn’t openly indicated his intention to do so at this point.

Nevertheless, former President Donald Trump launched preemptive strikes.

“I don’t know if he runs. I think if he runs, he could hurt himself a lot. I really believe he could get seriously injured,” Trump said in an interview with Fox News Digital. “I think he would make a mistake, I think the base wouldn’t like it – I don’t think it would be good for the party.”

Trump would later go on to criticize the Governor on TruthSocial, claiming that “Ron DeSanctimonious is playing games!”

“The Fake News asks him if he’s going to run if President Trump shows up, and he says, ‘I’m just focused on the governor’s race, I’m not looking ahead. Well, in terms of loyalty and class, that’s really not the right answer…” he said.

Despite this, Trump too “refuteda post that the former president “masterfully started this fake ‘fight’ with DeSantis to expose Deep State RINO scum and puppets.”

DeSantis, meanwhile, did not commit. Asked about Trump’s attacks, the governor simply said “incoming fire” was part of the job and proceeded to criticize establishment media. He address the so-called “civil war” the next day, telling reporters that “people just need to relax”.

All that aside, DeSantis’ post-midterm theme fits that of his forthcoming book — that Florida, which has seen massive Republican victories across the state, should serve as a “model” for the country moving forward.

“And it wasn’t just the best governor win, of course, that was it, but we swept. We swept super majorities in the Florida Legislature. We have 85 out of 120 Republicans in our State House, we’ve never had that many before,” DeSantis explained.

“The only place I think people can go to is Florida, because what did we do? I mean, you know, we came to a very tight election. Actually, before I became governor, 2010, 2012, 2014, 2016, 2018, all the major governor and presidential races were at one point or less for that time,” he continued.

“And we led and we were on offense, and we didn’t shy away from tackling the big issues. We tackled these issues and won victory after victory for the people,” he said, explaining how they broadened the base.

“You don’t win a million and a half votes if you only get your own party,” he added.
