The governor of Florida and candidate for the Republican primary, Ron DeSantis, suffered a car accident in Tennessee on Tuesday, although he was unscathed, like his companions, his campaign team reported.
“We appreciate the prayers and well wishes,” said Bryan Griffin, a spokesman for DeSantis.
The governor, who is in second place in the vote intention polls heading into the 2024 primaries but well behind first, former President Donald Trump, was on his way to a campaign event in Chattanooga when the accident happened.
According to Griffin, he had planned a meeting in that city in Tennessee (southern US) with donors.
Last Saturday, a national survey by the Harvard Harris Poll showed that Trump completely dominates the panorama ahead of the primaries, with 52% of voting intentions, even despite having lost seven points compared to the previous poll.
He also has a five-point advantage over the current president, Joe Biden, with 45% support compared to 40%, ahead of the presidential elections on November 5, 20224.
The governor of Florida, who just a few months ago seemed like he could overshadow Trump, is 40 points behind the former president and only two ahead of businessman Vivek Ramaswamy according to said survey.
