DeSantis to Trump: I Handily Won Re-Election

From a story on by Erin Doherty headlined “DeSantis on Trump attacks: I handily won re-election”:

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) flexed his 2022 midterm election victory margin when he was asked about former President Trump’s latest line of attack against him.

The big picture: The rising conservative star has largely avoided responding directly to Trump’s attacks that have mounted since the midterms, which triggered an internal reckoning over who might be best positioned to lead the party.

Trump’s influence as a GOP kingmaker came into question after the midterm elections, while DeSantis had a resounding victory.
