LATEST GOP MESS: Ron DeSantis vs. Kristi Noem

Republican infighting and chaos isn’t just confined to Republicans in Congress. As the 2024 Republican primary shapes up in a competition to be the most MAGA, South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem is already taking shots at Florida Governor Ron DeSantis over a key GOP litmus test: Abortion.

Kristi Noem’s spokesperson went on a rampage against Ron DeSantis for being insufficiently extreme on banning abortion. 

Ian Fury, spokesman for Governor Noem“Governor Noem was the only Governor in America on national television defending the Dobbs decision. Where was Governor DeSantis? Hiding behind a 15-week ban.”

Republicans are kicking off a messy 2024 primary season as they race to out-MAGA each other on just about every issue. Let’s not forget: Kristi Noem is the same anti-choice extremist who went on national TV to say that she would force a 1o-year-old rape victim to give birth.

And Ron DeSantis’s anti-choice record in question is already extreme. Thanks to an abortion ban DeSantis signed, a child incest victim was forced to leave the state to get care.

The latest infighting between DeSantis and Noem is just a reminder that the 2024 GOP primary will be a competition to out-MAGA each other on key issues.
