Florida’s Republican gubernatorial primary race is in full swing and from the looks of it, U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis is leading Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam by a bunch. The latest Mason-Dixon poll has DeSantis leading Putnam by 12 points.
President Trump, who has endorsed DeSantis, is scheduled to rally for his candidate in Tampa this week. The rally is a huge poke in the eye to Putnam considering that the event will be held in his backyard.
But do not count Putnam out.
Putnam still has a lot of support, name recognition, and campaign cash to make a strong run at DeSantis.
Perhaps Putnam may even look for some divine intervention?
Putnam appears to be taking a page out of Senator Marco Rubio’s Twitter playbook and has become to tweet scripture.
Heal me, LORD, and I will be healed; save me and I will be saved, for you are the one I praise. Jeremiah 17:14

But with that said, Putnam is pushing out his accomplishments in Florida, endorsements, and continues to feverishly campaign around the state.
Even though many Republicans are all-but writing Putnam off, there is still a month until the primary election. Anything can happen.
