DeSantis rips Biden during Iowa speech over hurting families

GOP presidential candidate Ron DeSantis ripped President Joe Biden during his first speech in Iowa this week.

He addressed a variety of issues in a Des Moines church, including the president's harm to the nation's families.

The comments

“Biden is deliberately trying to kneecap our energy production,” he said. “And he’s trying to force Americans into electric vehicles, which will make us more reliant on China who provides most of the materials for the batteries.”

“Restoring sanity means we can’t have every major institution in our country going on ideological joy rides, we have to be guided by reality, by facts and by our enduring principles,” he said. “Merit must trump identity politics.”

Basement Biden

DeSantis also pushed his Great American Comeback theme that was launched with his campaign's kickoff last week.

"Our Great American Comeback starts by sending Joe Biden back to his basement in Delaware," he said.

DeSantis currently ranks second in the latest National Republican Primary poll from Morning Consult with 22% in contrast with former President Donald Trump's 56%.

The position is both a blessing and a problem. He ranks as the only other candidate in double-digits with Trump but also trails by 34 points.

The governor's Iowa trip hopes to introduce his personality and policies to the state's GOP voters in the first primary state in a location that could set a trend for the states that follow.

In some ways, DeSantis is a more favorable candidate with a chance to pull in undecided voters, independents and never-Trumpers in the general election. However, he will first have to win in enough primary states to earn the nomination in what is currently a massive challenge for any GOP opponent to Trump.

The Florida governor is making the uphill battle as the nation will soon see DeSantis and other Republican candidates join in debates to bring more attention to next year's early primary elections in what promises to be a strong 2024 GOP battle.
