When asked about what had to happen or change to become the GOP front-runner, DeSantis said, “So here’s the thing. When I was running and every race I’ve run early on, nobody said I was the front-runner. I’ve spent the last six weeks spending a lot of time going to rural counties in Iowa. That is not getting a lot of fanfare. It’s certainly not going to move a national poll, but we’re banking people that are going to go caucus for us when it matters.”

DeSantis said people in Iowa and across the country can trust him.
