A 15-year-old shakes up New Hampshire with tough questions for Ron Desantis and other 2024 hopefuls

Quinn Mitchell, a high school student and aspiring journalist, has made a habit of attending presidential campaign events in New Hampshire. At a recent event Mitchell asked Florida Governor Ron Desantis, “Do you believe that Trump violated the peaceful transfer of power — a key principle of American democracy that we must uphold?” Desantis did not directly answer the question, and a week later Mitchell attempted to re-engage with the Florida Governor at a parade and apologize for the negative headlines Desantis had received following Mitchell’s question. However, upon meeting Desantis at the parade, Mitchell was met with hostility and even “kind of bodied” away by his staffers. The DeSantis campaign and Desantis Super PAC Never Back Down did not reply to requests for comment.
