How to think about Ron DeSantis? We decided to ask Dexter Filkins, who recently wrote a super-smart profile of the man for The New Yorker, which the Dish discussed at length. Dexter is an award-winning journalist best known for covering the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan for the New York Times. His book, "The Forever War," won the 2008 National Book Critics Circle Award. He’s the best in the business, a native of Florida, and a longtime friend of the Dish.
