Governor Ron DeSantis launched his 2024 presidential campaign Wednesday night, but not without issue. His first announcement, hosted by Elon Musk on Twitter Spaces, was preceded by technical difficulties – prompting confusion & criticism from many before his initial kick-off. The long-anticipated campaign announcement makes the Florida governor the ninth Republican candidate in the race, making for a crowded GOP primary fight come February. The new candidate will likely impact which way voters are leaning in the polls, and here to break it all down is co-Director of the Fox News Poll and professor at the University of Texas at Austin, Daron Shaw. He explains how his rocky campaign kick-off could have a lasting impact on DeSantis’ campaign, if any, how his entry impacts other major candidates like President Biden and former President Trump, and what the current polling tells us about voters’ preferences for 2024.
The National Memorial Day concert returns to Washington D.C., this weekend for its 34th year. The 90-minute program will air on PBS and feature musical guests, dramatic readings, and documentary footage honoring the men and women who sacrificed their lives for America’s freedom. The concert is viewed annually by U.S. troops in over 175 countries and 200 Navy ships around the world. This year’s co-host, actor and founder of the Gary Sinise Foundation, Gary Sinise, joins the Rundown for a conversation about how he got involved with the concert, what his foundation does to support veterans and their families, and how playing Lieutenant Dan in Forrest Gump allows soldiers to connect with him in a meaningful way.
