Meanwhile, the United States reached its $31.4 trillion debt ceiling, setting the stage for a monthslong political battle over how to move forward.

News 6 political analyst Jim Clark sat down with anchor Justin Warmoth on “The Weekly” to explain the saga surrounding the documents, what could happen if the government defaults on its debt and DeSantis’ potential 2024 presidential run.

“The governor of Florida is getting more publicity than the 49 other governors combined,” Clark said. “I’ve never seen anything like this. He’s dominating the national conversation.”

Clark expects Gov. DeSantis to announce he’s running for president sometime in the spring. Former President Trump already announced his candidacy in November.
