(WatchDogReport.org) – Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) is one of President Donald Trump’s closest allies. The Republican has been in lock-step with the commander-in-chief throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. He campaigned for him during the election, and he isn’t giving up the fight for Trump.
On Tuesday, December 15, a reporter asked DeSantis about whether he will be calling Joe Biden “president-elect” after the Electoral College vote. The governor said that isn’t up to him. Florida’s electors cast their ballots, which went for Trump. He said he thinks there’s “something there” when discussing the fact that many Republicans think the election was stolen.
Florida Gov. DeSantis declines to acknowledge Biden as the president-elect: "It's not for me to do…"

It’s nice to see a Republican leader still supporting his president, especially when people like Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) have already given up. It should also be noted that the whole “president-elect” scandal is a nothing burger. There is no president-elect; it’s NOT an official term. That’s just what the media uses when they think they know who the winner is. Well, they’ll be shocked when they find out this thing isn’t over.
