Many conservatives put the blame for an underwhelming midterms performance on former President Donald Trump. The midterm election saw many Trump-endorsed candidates all over the country fail to gain office.
The midterms were seen by many as a sign to move on from Trump. The outlandish candidates pushed by Trump turned some easy wins into close races and other possible wins into losses.
"All the chatter on my conservative and GOP channels is rage at Trump like I've never seen," Michael Brendan Dougherty, a senior writer at National Review, wrote on Twitter. "'The one guy he attacked before Election Day was DeSantis — the clear winner, meanwhile, all his guys are s---ing the bed.'"

Trump’s big November 15 announcement should be an endorsement of Ron DeSantis for president in 2024.
We can do better.

Time to move on from Trump

The dominant re-election performance by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis left many pointing to him as the new leader of the Republican Party.
If DeSantis in Florida wildly overperforms all the handpicked and Trump-supported Republicans in other swing states (particularly if they *lose* close races), well then gosh that is going to be a fascinating new narrative that will be commented upon by positively no one.

Trump issued a warning to DeSantis that if he runs in 2024 it could hurt him "very badly" on Tuesday.
"I don’t know if he is running. I think if he runs, he could hurt himself very badly. I really believe he could hurt himself badly," Trump said. "I think he would be making a mistake, I think the base would not like it — I don’t think it would be good for the party."
"Any of that stuff is not good — you have other people that possibly will run, I guess," he continued. "I don’t know if he runs. If he runs, he runs."
