Lehi politicians and state leaders urge DeSantis to explore 2024 Presidential run



Members of the Utah State Senate and other local political leaders released a letter on Monday urging Florida Governor Ron DeSantis to form an exploratory committee to run for President in 2024. 

“Our nation stands at a crossroads. We recognize the need for a strong leader to guide and direct our nation, someone with a proven track record and a strong conservative foundation who understands the operations of state government. We need a leader who will strengthen and unify the nation. Gov. Ron DeSantis serves his country and state well and skillfully navigated the many challenges Florida faced during his first term,” the letter reads.

Local leaders who also signed the letter include State Senator Jake Anderegg, House Representative Kay Christofferson, Lehi Mayor Mark Johnson, Lehi City Councilman Paul Hancock, Lehi City Councilman Chris Condie, Utah County Commissioner Amelia P Gardner, Utah County Commissioner-Elect Brandon Gordon, Utah County Clerk Josh Daniels and Utah County Auditor-Elect Rod Mann.
