CNN’s Wolf Blitzer asked Haberman: “It’s interesting that Trump is so far avoiding criticizing DeSantis by name. Why is that? And should we expect the overt jabs to start flying soon?”
But “in general, I think he’s trying not to elevate him. I think he’s trying not to put too much of a face on him,” she said. “Because he is somebody, DeSantis, that not every Trump voter knows, who not everybody is familiar with and I think he wants to keep him sort of at a remove.”

Haberman suspected it was “going to change,” though, as DeSantis embarks on a 90-day book tour to promote his new memoir, “The Courage to Be Free: Florida’s Blueprint for America’s Survival,” which the Times book critic described as reading like it was “churned out” by an AI bot.
“Then we are going to know exactly how many other people are jumping into this field, so a lot could change,” Haberman added.
