I think DeSantis will be the nominee in 2024, especially if is re-elected by a huge margin here in Florida next year. Assuming things don't get a lot worse. If they do, we could be looking at a Pinochet-type leader that hasn't emerged yet.

Other possible candidates:

Condi Rice: Too close to the Bush clan. And where has she been for the last 10 years?

Ben Carson: Would probably make a good president in a sane and rational country, but we need someone more aggressive

Greg Abbott: Seems to be one step behind DeSantis on most issues. "All hat, no cattle".

Ted Cruz: Nope. No appeal to the blue collar folks that Trump had, and he barely won his Senate race in 2018.

Tom Cotton: Nope. Too war-hawkish

Rand Paul: Same comment as with Carson.

Scott Walker: I think he is one of the stronger candidates, but where has he been the last few years?

Nikki Haley: No way. Bush in heels.

Kristi Noem: Would be great in the cabinet, but I don't think she is as strong or conservative or smart as DeSantis

DeSantis seems to be like Trump without Trump's bad personality attributes. And I think he is more libertarian-ish too, which is a plus.
