Ron DeSantis is currently traveling across the country to promote his new book The Courage to Be Free: Florida's Blueprint for America's Rebirth. Some of the first stops are Iowa, Nevada and New Hampshire. Do you think that's a coincidence, Mr. Hagle?
Timothy Hagle:(laughs) No, I don't think so. Whenever a politician heads into the early primary states, there's room for speculation. In the case of Ron DeSantis, it's just the latest in a string of signs. It's no secret that he is preparing to launch his campaign and is meeting with advisers and party strategists. When DeSantis thinks the time is right, he will announce his candidacy.
