Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is a finalist for Time’s 2022 Person of the Year

Time Magazine revealed the contenders for their 2022 Person of the Year on the Today Show Monday, which includes Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. The list is based off “who they felt had the most influence on the world this year,” and continues much of the media’s odd love affair with the man. Lauded as “the GOP’s sharpest and most conspicuous weapon,” DeSantis is joined on the shortlist by China’s president Xi Jinping, Liz Cheney, Gun Safety Advocates, Protestors in Iran, Janet Yellen, the U.S. Supreme Court, MacKenzie Scott, Volodymyr Zelenskyy and Elon Musk.
