The Inauguration Celebrations Underway!
President-elect DeSantis and Vice President-elect Haley have been busy with Inauguration Celebrations and as they prepare to assume the responsibilities at Noon on Monday, January 20. The Biden's hosted a White House private dinner for Vice President Kamala Harris and her husband Doug Emhoff, along with the Blinkens. Biden is described to be in good spirits, despite the complete dominance by the Republican's over politics in Washington and across the nation.









President Ron DeSantis and First Lady Casey DeSantis at the Commander's-in-Chief Ball, January  20 2025.

The White House has released a statement
that President Biden's list of last minute pardons will be released tomorrow morning. As for the departure ceremony by the Biden's and Harris will not include will be absent Marine One, as they will both depart from the East Front by Limousine. The weather forecast is expected to be overcast, but still cold.
Already incoming White House Chief of Staff Byron Donalds has just resigned his house seat and the new Florida Governor, Jeanette Nunez will name the date of special elections as soon as Brian Mast (Incoming Veterans Affairs Secretary), Carlos Gimenez (Incoming Homeland Security Secretary) resign their own seat's.  The special elections will likely be scheduled for the same day. Despite attempts by Senate Democrats are attempting to engineer a push back against Incoming Attorney General Ted Cruz. However Senate majority leader, John Cornyn ,  a fellow Texan has signalled a willingness to bypass any attempt of mischief making by Democrats. For his part, the Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee, Lindsey Graham has stated, "That there will be a speedy confirmation of Ted Cruz as our nation's Attorney General". Democrats have voiced concern that Cruz will spearhead the new administration's border policy, which likely include resumption of the border wall, a staple of the previous Trump Administration.

Next: A shortlived Honeymoon for a new administration!

@2016, thank you, for that reminder; however, thankfully you beat me to the punch, so don't need to do it now, apologies everyone for that oversight. On to matters concerning Florida, the recently installed Governor Jeanette Nuñez has announced that her new Lieutenant Governor, will be the current Secretary of Department of Economic Opportunity, Dane Eagle , who was appointed to the position of by President-elect and former Governor Ron DeSantis in September, 2020. Eagle sought the Republican nomination for Congress in Florida's 19th Congressional District in the 2020 election. There had been speculation that Mike Giallombardo was being considered for the position, but Nuñez has instead opted for Eagle who was viewed as a better choice.

I would say the most likely flips in 2026 in the Senate, considering the nature of this TL are Georgia (D to R), Michigan (D to R), Minnesota (D to R), New Hampshire (D to R), New Mexico (D to R), and Virginia (D to R), with honorable mentions to New Jersey (D to R), Maine (R to D), Colorado (D to R) and Delaware (D to R).

A good point of reference to utilize, during the 2025-26 political cycle. The special elections for the vacancies created by the resignations of Mast(FL.,-21), Donalds(FL.,-19) and Gimenez (FL.,-28), Ratcliffe (TX.,-5) and Stewart (UT.,-2), might be a barometer of popularity for the relatively new DeSantis Administration. Hopefully Rinaldi the new Chairman of the RNC, will have enough game to recruit candidates good enough to retain the vacant seats.

FLORIDA STATUES REGARDING VACANCIES & SPECIAL ELECTIONS
http://www.leg.state.fl.us/Statutes/index.cfm?App_mode=Display_Statute&URL=0100-0199/0100/Sections/0100.111.html

Maybe someone can shed some light into this. I am not a Lawyer. The only thing I understand is that there apparently has to be 2 Weeks between the Special Primary Election and the Special General Election, usually it is more. In the last Florida Special Election to fill the Seat of now deceased Rep. Alcee Hastings the Special Primary was in November 2021 while the Special General was in January 2022.

Other than FL-28 these all should be easy Republican holds, even if DeSantis quickly becomes very unpopular. And FL-28 basically depends on who both parties recruit, and at this point Republicans have the deeper bench in the Miami area than Democrats do.

On the eve of Ron DeSantis's inauguration, I am thinking that since Gov. Phil Murphy, is term limited,  that Republicans will be considering who there strongest candidate could be, there is New Jersey GOP chairman, Bob Hugin or 2021 Gubernatorial nominee, Jack Ciatarelli  or maybe former Senator Jeff Chiesa; it will be noted that Chiesa was appointed to the U.S. Senate in 2013 by then Gov. Chris Christie to replace the deceased Sen.Frank Lautenberg . On the Democratic side of the aisle, there's likely to be an even more competitive primary contest if it comes to it. One possibility being mooted to run is Lt. Gov. Sheila Oliver, but considering her age, she will be 73 years old by this coming November; however there is a possibility that Congressman Rob Menendez Jr., (N.J.-8) is considering a possible run, to avenge the defeat of his father, by Mehmet Öz last November. Other Democrats who might run could include another Congressman Donald Norcross (N.J.-1) and Mayor Steve Fulop of Jersey City; Fulop is a former Marine and served in Iraq and he would likely be the most appealing Democrat on the bench. Another state holding a Governorship race this November is Virginia, in which current Gov. Glenn Youngkin who would be term-limited, and has been tapped by incoming President Ron DeSantis to be Commerce Secretary; if and when Youngkin goes to Washington, his replacement as Governor will be current Lt. Governor, Winsome Sears .
She will have the advantage of incumbency, very rare in Virginia, considering the one-term rule. She also would be the first African American woman to hold the position. Democrats will be looking to recruit someone just as appealing to challenge  names on the radar include Congresswoman Jennifer Wexton , (Va.,-10) and Mayor of Richmond, Levar Stoney who's term expires on January 31st. It is not usual that the incumbent party, win or hold both the Governorship's of New Jersey and Virginia. The last time it occurred was in 1965, during the presidency of Lyndon B. Johnson. The question remains can DeSantis see his party replicate this feat.

January 19th 2025
FLORIDA GOVERNOR JEANETTE NUÑEZ INTENDS TO WAIT UNTIL ALL OF INCOMING PRESIDENT DESANTIS' CABINET PICKS ARE CONFIRMED BEFORE CALLING FOR SPECIAL ELECTIONS
Florida Governor Jeanette Nuñez, who wrapped up the first two weeks of her own tenure as Florida Governor after being inaugurated on January 7th 2025 intends to wait until all of incoming Presidents' Cabinet Picks such as Carlos Gimenez (FL-28) & Brian Mast (FL-21) are confirmed by the United States Senate telling Reporters in Tallahassee "The Special Elections here in Florida will be scheduled in due course. You know there has to be a Qualifying Period which I will consult with the Florida Secretary of State after these Picks have been confirmed by the U. S. Senate and these Members of Congress have written their Resignations" before boarding a Charter Plane to attend the DeSantis Inauguration tomorrow.

While official Washington and the nation reacted to President DeSantis and the First Lady hosted a coffee morning for the many visitors who received invitations to meet the President. After which both DeSantis and Haley and members of the incoming attended a ecumenical service of thanksgiving at the National Cathedral. The president and Vice President attended and presided over swearing in ceremonies for White House staffers, including incoming White House Chief of Staff, Byron Lowell Donalds and the new National Security Advisor,  Dina Powell McCormick.  Those cabinet members who received quick, easy and unanimous confirmation included Secretary of State, Robert Charles O'Brien , Secretary of the Treasury, David Harold McCormick ,  who's wife happens to be the National Security Advisor, and finally Secretary of Defense, Kenneth Braithwaite,  they all were sworn into office in the Oval office, the oaths of office being administered by Vice President Haley . There was tense moments in the White House Press Room, as White House Press  Secretary  Kayleigh McEnany was confronted by the press regarding the fitness of Ted Cruz, to be Attorney General, in scenes reminiscent of when then White House Press Secretary, Sean Spicer   was involved in a disagreement with the press corps over the size of the crowds of Former President Donald Trump's inauguration. The confirmation of Ted Cruz would proceed, "No matter what made up controversies of our opponent's!" It appeared the honeymoon was coming to an end!
Next: Democratic resistance to Ted Cruz increases!

January 20/21 2025
MEDIA REACTS POSITIVLY TO PRESIDENT DESANTIS INAUGURAL ADDRESS EXCEPT FOR ONE PARTICULAR NETWORK WHO WENT OF THE RAILS; MCENANY REVEALS INTERESTING TWEET ON HER TWITTER MINUTES BEFORE SHE TOOK THE PODIUM IN THE WHITE HOUSE PRESS ROOM
Most of the Mainstream Media reacted positivly to President DeSantis Inaugural Address with even more liberal Political Analysts like Van Jones praising DeSantis Speech quote "While I disagree with many of DeSantis Policies he will likely implement during the next two year given the large Majorities Republicans have at least we did not hear the divisive rhetoric for him compared to former President Trump and I give him credit for that."
Outgoing CNN Anchor Wolf Blitzer, whom this was the last Presidential Inauguration he attended as an Anchor of the Network quipped Anderson Cooper saying "Look, there was a lot misconception how President DeSantis would handle his first big moment as President and I think he did very, very well addressing the Nation and trying to bring the Country together." Gloria Borger, Incoming CNN Main Anchor Jake Tapper and Chief Washington Correspondent Dana Bash agreed with him.
On ABC a Special 2-Hour World News was presented from 6pm to 8pm ET with World News David Muir, ABC's LIVE Anchor Linsey Davis, Martha Raddatz, Chief White House Correspondent Cecilia Vega and THIS WEEK Anchor George Stephanopoulos all whom graded President DeSantis Address positivly. Vega made a shock Announcement at the end of the Broadcast announcing that after 15-Years working on ABC News Affiliates (KGO San Francisco) and then as ABC NEWS Weekend Anchor + Chief WH Correspondent she would leave the Network. Speculation surrounding her is that she replaces disgraced former WH Correspondent John Harwood at CNN with new CEO Chris Licht still reshuffling the CNN Lineup.
DeSantis drew the highest Ratings & positive grades understandably from FOX NEWS who had Special Coverage from 6pm to 10pm with Special Report Anchor Bret Bair, THESTORY Anchor Martha MacCallum, FOX NEWS SUNDAY Anchor Shannon Bream anchoring the Coverage and Hosts such as Maria Bartiromo, Neil Cavuto chiming in.
NBC NEWS & CBS NEWS followed similar Special Reports with Nightly News Anchor Lester Holt and CBS Evening News Anchor Norah O'Donnell anchoring those and DeSantis received positive grades there as well.
However NBC's Sister Network MSNBC did go off the rails. One particular soundbite from DeSantis Address drew the ire of Joy Reid, Anchor of READOUT who claimed DeSantis was calling out former President Joe Biden a KID referencing to DeSantis' Phrase "it's time for the adults to be put back in charge again" with other Hosts joining the Chorus. Reid claimed DeSantis would govern no different like how he governed in Florida saying "President DeSantis is a Trump Clone".

As the Morning of January 21st 2025 drew MSNBC's Morning Joe Host Joe Scarborough attempted to clean up the mess of the previous Night saying "President DeSantis is not as bad as some people claim he is. The guy won 420 Electoral Votes, let that sink in first before you criticize him".
On CNN the Network changed their Logo from "NEW DAY" to "NEW DAWN FOR AMERICA" with people in the know claiming that Chris Licht was likely behind it.
FOX NEWS aired a 4-Hour Special from 5am to 9am of FOX & FRIENDS with Ainsley Earhardt, Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmaede with various Guests chiming in.

As the 2pm Afternoon Hour drew incoming WH Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany revealed a Tweet she got from Arkansas Governor Sarah Sanders "@KayleighMcEnany: Couldn't be more prouder in seeing you back in the White House. Welcome Back Kayleigh! McEnany responded with Thanks, still continueing the work you started" in reference that Sarah Sanders was the 1st WH Press Secretary under former President Trump.
McEnany faced questions about former Texas Senator Ted Cruz' Confirmation as Attorney General as well as President DeSantis Executive Orders regarding repealing all COVID19 Restrictions and the Keystone XL Pipeline responding "We are trying to get people back to work for good paying jobs and more importantly trying to get ourselves out of that ditch & hole the previous Administrations have put us in".
Sources within the White House West Wing claiming Communications Director Christina Pushaw & other allies in the WH Comm loop pushing President DeSantis to do national televised address declaring the COVID-19 Pandemic rougly 5 years after the first COVID Death in the Country as over.
The other big Issue White House Sources claim is the Southern Border Crisis with some Sources speaking under the condition of anonym that President DeSantis is likely tap his Vice President Nikki Haley as Border Czar (the same Position former Vice President Kamala Harris had in the Biden Administration).

@SaintStan86 no apologies necessary, you are welcome to engage in this TL if you feel so inclined, if anything your contribution as well as those of @2016 and the many others are welcome. Also as the 2024-A Blank Canvas may be in a way concluded, I think what that particular thread began, could continue; so if there is anything you believe that helps the TL to continue, please feel free to work away. I'm pleased by the contributions so far made, so keep up the work!

The question remains can DeSantis see his party replicate this feat.

I would expect either Republicans winning both Virginia and New Jersey, or a split decision, with Republicans winning Virginia and losing New Jersey, considering the nature of this timeline.

Given the nature of this TL, I'm thinking the next time Democrats will gain seats will probably either coincide with Don Jr.'s re-election bid in 2036 or Laura Loomer's first midterms in 2042. Since obviously two-term Governor Doug Mastriano will sweep aside Casey in 2030.

Now now! Let's not be ridiculous! In this TL if Harris waa a bad fit as a Democratic candidate, perhaps because maybe that's she is viewed in those parts of America that see her for the phony she actually is. Maybe folks in flyover country, regard "woke" and elite Democrats to be nothing less than joke's and don't take them seriously as the celebrity class and the elite's who inhabit the salons of Democratic bastions do so. Also voter's in this TL or in real life are not expected to come with hat in hand to Democrats! It's the other way around. So if Democrats want to keep putting up candidate's like Hillary Clinton or Kamala Harris, that's their right! DeSantis or any Republican who want to win, will be more than happy if they keep on doing so. If Doug Mastriano decides to challenge Casey in 2030, it will because his Governorship has been a success. Also Donald Trump Jr., will have to win an election to prove his electability. However if a Democrat like Jason Kander or Andy Beshear emerges as a credible candidate to run against Nikki Haley in 2032, then voter's will render that decision on who's the better candidate.
I believe there is liitle likelihood that Democrats will stray too far from their progressive ideology and strident wokeism, judging from the text of DeSantis's inaugural address, he doesn't believe so either.
This TL is basically trying to keep things as realistic as possible. If you think you can make a contribution that is realistic as possible and keeps within the guard-rails of how this storyline has been constructed, you're more than welcome to do so.

Given the nature of this TL, I'm thinking the next time Democrats will gain seats will probably either coincide with Don Jr.'s re-election bid in 2036 or Laura Loomer's first midterms in 2042. Since obviously two-term Governor Doug Mastriano will sweep aside Casey in 2030.

I disagree. I'd actually say 2030, when DeSantis is on the back end of his second term will be the next D wave, but Democrats will likely gain House and Senate seats in 2028 and possibly 2026 if DeSantis's popularity does in fact slip.
