Former President Donald Trump is still a major player in the race for the Republican nomination for president, but Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida, which is Trump's home state, poses a substantial threat to him. The true fight in the Republican primary may be for the position of second place, despite the fact that Trump appears to be the undisputed frontrunner for the nomination for the 2024 election. As the primary election season draws closer, rumors are starting to circulate that Trump and DeSantis would run on the same ticket.

Constitutional Obstacles In addition to the human dynamics, there is also a constitutional impediment to consider when it comes to the possibility of a ticket consisting of Trump and DeSantis.
