Breaking with Trump may be prudent, but it carries a significant amount of risk. Anyone who breaks from Trump in small, isolated numbers has every chance of being steamrolled in the process.
Excellent analysis as usual. However, former alliances doesn't necessarily mean current ones. DeSantis has at times fired Trump people if they don't follow his instructions or for various other reasons. Unlike Rubio's acceptance of Heritage Action's first Needham and then Holler, DeSantis keeps people who are in line w/his goals, not Trump's.
Ironic or not, Trump claiming credit for Ron's 2018 win via manipulation will be placed by the Feds alongside Ron's awareness of ghost candidates, Trulieve, etc, and other Greenberg-proximate shenanigans. Greenberg could make the Ron/Don civil war into a true suicide pact.
