As the GOP presidential primary debate approaches, allies of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis have outlined a strategic plan to navigate the upcoming event.
In a two-page memo by the pro-DeSantis super PAC Never Back Down, published by Axiom Strategies on August 15th, the allies detail key objectives for DeSantis in defending former President Donald Trump from attacks by Chris Christie and addressing upstart contender Vivek Ramaswamy.
The memo underscores the need for Governor DeSantis to defend former President Trump from potential attacks by his rivals.
One suggested response for DeSantis is to steer clear of unnecessary conflict, stating, “Trump isn’t here, so let’s just leave him alone. He’s too weak to defend himself here.”
Taking on Ramaswamy
The memo also highlights the importance of addressing Vivek Ramaswamy, suggesting strong language such as referring to him as “Fake Vivek” or “Vivek the Fake.”
The memo emphasizes the necessity for DeSantis to proactively engage with the audience and his fellow candidates.
It lists four key objectives for DeSantis to accomplish on stage. These include defending Trump, attacking Ramaswamy, blasting President Joe Biden and the press, and conveying a positive vision for the country.
Navigating Attacks on DeSantis
The memo also provides insights into how DeSantis should respond when his name is invoked by other candidates.
If DeSantis faces a core attack on his candidacy, the memo advises him to take time to correct the record, highlight positive aspects, and address the attacker if it’s a significant candidate. DeSantis can also pivot to discussing President Biden.
An Easy Defense
The memo suggests that DeSantis should pivot directly to his message and vision for less significant attacks, engaging with voters from specific states.
Focus On Trumpism
The strategy outlined in the memo aims to position DeSantis as a torchbearer for Trumpism. It suggests DeSantis should present himself as a leader ready to carry forward the legacy of former President Trump.
Moreover, the memo recommends that DeSantis include a personal anecdote or story about his family, children, or wife, Casey DeSantis, while showing emotion. This approach aims to connect with voters on a more personal level.
While the outlined strategy has received praise from some within DeSantis’ political circle, it has also raised questions from seasoned Republican strategists.
Some find the memo’s suggestions insightful, while others view it as a risky move to publish such a detailed plan.
In the Spotlight
Some believe that making these strategies public could limit DeSantis’ maneuverability, as opponents might be prepared to counter his pre planned responses.
As the GOP presidential primary debate approaches, the strategy memo by DeSantis allies sheds light on their game plan.
It outlines a comprehensive approach that focuses on defending Trump, addressing competitors, conveying a clear vision, and engaging with both rivals and voters.
Time Will Tell
Ultimately, the debate will serve as a test for DeSantis and his ability to navigate these challenges and solidify his position in the race.
