On Wednesday morning, Brexit leader, Nigel Farage predicted that a “titanic clash” is brewing between Donald Trump and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, the two leading possible contenders for the Republican nomination for President in 2024.

Nigel Farage said, that while Republican gains in Congress will limit President Biden’s ability to govern, the failure of any so-called “Red Wave” to happen, will likely elevate DeSantis in the eyes of conservative voters. Speaking from the mid-term battleground state of Arizona, he explained that this missing “wave” will not provide the “huge springboard” Donald Trump had hoped for, before his expected announcement of his intention to run for president again, planned this next week.

In Farage’s opinion, over the next few weeks, the veteran political campaigner - turned GB News host, said that discussions-

“within the Republican party as to whether they should pick Trump or DeSantis is going to reach fever pitch”…

Further, despite the fact that the Red Wave did not materialize, DeSantis swept to a stunning victory, defeating his Democrat challenger, former governor Charlie Christ by nearly 20 per cent, up from a 0.4 per cent victory in his original bid for the governorship in 2018. DeSantis said, in a speech from Tampa, that Florida has “rewritten the political map” after making dramatic gains in former Democrat strongholds, such as Miami-Dade county.

Mr. Farage went on to say that, in light of the large margin for victory for the Florida governor-

“the numbers supporting the DeSantis will be much higher than it was before, so there could be a really titanic clash here between two alpha males.”

Given DeSantis’ now proven ability to convince voters outside of the party’s base, he is now a “serious challenger to …(Trumps) position,” especially if the contest were held now, according to Farage. He added, by comparison, Trump has the advantage presently, as he has the “overwhelming support” of the Republican base.

With Trump openly mocking the Florida governor, at a rally in Pennsylvania over the weekend, dubbing him “Ron DeSanctimonious”, there has already been some brewing tensions, between the two potential presidential contenders.  However, despite the nickname he used, Trump did reveal that as a Florida resident, he voted for DeSantis on Tuesday.

While MAGA candidates such as Eric Schmitt in Missouri, J.D. Vance in Ohio, Katie Britt in Alabama, Ted Budd in North Carolina prevailed, other key candidates fell to the Democrats such as gubernatorial candidate Doug Mastriano and Senate candidate Dr. Mehmet Oz in Pennsylvania. The outcome for Trump, that evening, was a mixed bag in terms of his endorsements, it would seem.

Now, the Arizona governor and Senate races for Kari Lake and Blake Masters, respectively, who are considered some of the most closely aligned candidates to the former president – still are pending.

Farage concluded-

 “I just think that if Kari Lake wins, then the Trump train is still on, but if Kari Lake doesn’t win, he’s going to have some slight second thought. I still think he will [run] but he will face a tough challenge from DeSantis.”

“The greatest lessons I have ever learned happened at the times where I kept my mouth shut and my ears open. The problem is, I have great difficulty keeping those in the right order.”
