DeSantis camp on Iowa: A 'strong second' is good enough

DeSantis's campaign manager, emphasis mine:

“Iowa is a real state for us because of its education — it’s a highly educated state — because of income, because of Bible reading,” said Jeff Roe, in audio obtained by POLITICO. “New Hampshire is a terrible state for Donald Trump. That’s a terrible state for him. He’s gonna get like 28 percent. Now there is more people who will have a slice of that and some people are just betting on New Hampshire overall. But he’s going to lose the first two states. We’re going to beat him in Iowa.”

When you're a conservative that doesn't believe in school and for whom universities are bastions of a woke ideology, the two hallmarks of the highly educated are apparently income and Bible reading. TIL.
