Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis appears to be struggling to generate support among Republican lawmakers for his possible presidential run as former President Trump surges in 2024 GOP primary polls.
A new Wall Street Journal poll out Friday shows Trump with a 13% lead in a hypothetical GOP presidential primary contest.
In December, DeSantis had a 14% lead over Trump in a Wall Street Journal poll in a test GOP primary battle.
On Tuesday, while the Florida Legislature was in session, DeSantis visited Washington, D.C., for a meet-and-greet with GOP members of Congress at the Heritage Foundation. The event was sponsored by the organization And to the Republic (ATTR).

DeSantis’ political team reportedly had asked members of the Florida congressional delegation to withhold their 2024 endorsements. The Florida governor and former congressman has not formally entered the GOP presidential primary.
Following the meet-and-greet with DeSantis, some of the Republican lawmakers who attended met for dinner at a nearby steakhouse.
