Ron DeSantis ‘completely wiped away Democrat opposition in Florida’: Liz Peek
Fox News contributor Liz Peek discusses Florida gubernatorial race victor Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., what his victory could mean for the future of the GOP, and Donald Trump’s role in the Republican Party on ‘Varney & Co.’
The 2022 midterm election results are rolling in, and like it or not, betting markets are already turning an eye toward the 2024 race for the White House.
Votes were still being counted Tuesday night when Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis' landslide election win sent shock waves through election speculators, catapulting the governor past former President Donald Trump to the top of the betting odds.
"Incredible shift in the odds for President in 2024! @RonDeSantisFL overtook Trump for the first time," said Maxim Lott, co-founder of the website electionbettingodds.com.
Lott's website averages live odds pulled from numerous election betting markets. The website now gives DeSantis a 26.8% chance of winning the presidency in 2024, representing a 11.8% shift of the odds in his favor in just the last day. Former President Donald Trump slid out of first place, falling to 18.4% odds of re-taking the White House.
