His candidacy comes at apivotal moment for the RepublicanParty, which must choose betweenaligning once more behindTrump – who lost in 2020 andcontinues to rage falsely abouta stolen election – or unitingaround a new challenger to takeon President Joe Biden.3 But on Wednesday, DeSantis’sofficial run for the White Housegot off to an embarrassing start asthe planned livestream with Twitter’seccentric billionaire owner,Elon Musk, was marred by technicalproblems and dead air. When,after more than 25 minutes, De-Santis finally spoke, he declared,“I am running for president of the0 – 2 SHAKY wacklig — glitch-marred durchPannen gestört — entrance Einstieg — to go haywire(fig) chaotisch verlaufen — combative kämpferisch— to champion für etw. eintreten — tothrow punches (fig) attackieren — a flurry of e-eWelle von — formidable schwierig; ernsthaft —ascent Aufstieg — pivotal zentral — to align behinds.o. s. hinter jdn. stellen3 – 4 billionaire Milliardär(in) — dead air Funkstille— hiccup Schluckauf; h.: Störung — gleefullyh.: schadenfroh — to commandeer in BeschlagTwo candidates tiedin a board president election inWisconsin.

And we should choosea new direction, a path that willlead to American revitalization.”He accused Biden of taking “hiscues from the woke mob.” De-Santis did not mention Trump byname. But he did sketch out someof the contrasts he is expected tosharpen in the coming months.“We must look forward, notbackwards,” he said. “We needthe courage to lead, and we musthave the strength to win.”7 DeSantis is confronting thedaunting endeavor of toppling aformer president whose belligerenceand loyal base of supporthave discouraged most leadingRepublicans from making frontalattacks against him. Trump,who has a mounting list of legaltroubles, clearly sees DeSantis asa political threat and has unloadedon him for months, mockinghim as “Ron DeSanctimonious”and slamming his stewardship ofFlorida.8 “Trump is not as invincible ashe once seemed, and DeSantis isa serious contender,” said MikeMurphy, a veteran Republicanstrategist. “There are Republicanvoters looking for someonewho can move beyond Trump,someone who can fight the liberalsbut also win elections. That’sthe space DeSantis is trying to inhabit.”Continued on page 127 daunting einschüchternd; schwierig — endeavorUnterfangen — to topple (fig) zu Fall bringen— belligerence Streitlust — to discourages.o. jdn. davon abhalten — mounting größer werdend— to unload on s.o.
