Rep. Lee Endorses DeSantis

  • While many Republican lawmakers are backing former President Donald J. Trump to be the Republican nominee — setting up a potential rematch with President Biden — some have voiced their support for one of his potential challengers: Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.
  • Rep. Laurel Lee, R-Fla., has become the latest to back DeSantis, announcing on Tuesday that she was throwing her support behind the potential candidate.
  • “As Ron DeSantis’s Secretary of State, I had the honor of witnessing firsthand his unparalleled leadership under pressure, his character, and his commitment to core conservative principles. His leadership and his vision made Florida a shining beacon of freedom,” Lee said in a statement.
