Florida Republican Rep. announces he’ll run for governor


If you’re a fan of Florida Rep. Ron DeSantis, then you’re in luck. The GOP affiliate has announced he’ll be throwing his name in for a bid for governor of the sunshine state.

DeSantis has also earned support from President Trump, who issued a tweet in December for support for the Republican candidate.

The Hill reports the following:

“Florida Rep. Ron DeSantis (R) announced his candidacy to be the state’s next governor on Friday, telling Politico in a statement that he is the only one with the experience necessary to follow in Gov. Rick Scott’s (R) footsteps.

DeSantis’ move follows weeks of speculation over his intentions following a Dec. 22 tweet from President Trump urging Floridians to support the Republican lawmaker for governor.

“Congressman Ron DeSantis is a brilliant young leader, Yale and Harvard Law, who would make a GREAT Governor of Florida,” Trump tweeted last month. “He loves our Country and is a true FIGHTER.”

DeSantis said Friday that he was “excited” to launch his campaign for governor with Trump’s endorsement.”
