Scott Walker grades Ron DeSantis as a potential GOP frontrunner

Former President Donald Trump never gave Scott Walker a nickname during the 2016 election cycle. Consider him one of the lucky ones.

The former Wisconsin governor, who was once considered the GOP 2016 presidential frontrunner, escaped Trump’s wrath in part by dropping out of the contest early.

“I could see what the others failed to see. And that was that this was Donald Trump’s time,” said Walker.

As the 2024 race heats up, Walker is now weighing in on Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, a potential White House hopeful who is heralded as one of the more promising Republicans to emerge in the post-Trump era.

“I think of all the governors in America, he probably handled the best during the last four years,” said Walker.

POLITICO’s video team showed Walker some clips from DeSantis’ State of the State. Watch here to see what he had to say, including what grade he would give Desantis.
