Political commentator and conservative television personality Sean Hannity is campaigning with Congressman Ron DeSantis as DeSantis face Florida Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam in his bid to replace term-limited Governor Rick Scott.
This upcoming midterm election season, specifically Florida’s gubernatorial race, is seen as a referendum on President Trump’s first two years in office. And, President Trump recently took to twitter to formally endorse Congressman DeSantis.
However, even though Democrats are assuring that a “blue wave” is going to sweep in the midterm elections, Michael Barnett, Palm Beach County GOP chairman, argues that the GOP is “feeling pretty good.” The reason being that a recent poll showed that President Trump’s approval rating has topped 50% and that the unemployment rate is the lowest it’s been since before the Great Recession.
Although DeSantis is lagging behind Commissioner Putnam in the polls, Hannity’s star power is expected to add some weight to the campaign. He’s scheduled to speak in a three-city tour, which began in Fort Myers, will continue in Downtown Tampa and it will ultimately end in Pensacola.
Now, Congressman DeSantis is not shy about his support for President Trump, and Volusia County GOP Chairman Tony Ledbetter says that detractors of the President aren’t paying attention because “President Trump is creating the red wave for November.”
So, will President Trump hit the campaign trail on behalf of Ron DeSantis?
He just might, and people will definitely pay attention.
