Ron DeSantis’ campaign dismisses VA talk

Congressman Ron DeSantis’ campaign this week dismissed a Washington Post report that the Republican gubernatorial candidate was on a short list to become the next Veterans Affairs secretary.

“As much as @adamputnam would like this to be true, @RonDesantisFL is going to be next Governor of Florida,” tweeted DeSantis campaign manager Brad Herold. “He will however continue to work with the next VA Secretary to make sure Florida veterans are given the care they deserve.”

According to the Post, topping the list of potential nominees is Jeff Miller, who spent 16 years in Congress representing Northwest Florida.

President Donald Trump has praised DeSantis, who has been among GOP lawmakers who have repeatedly appeared on Fox News to defend the president.

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

The News Service of Florida provides journalists, lobbyists, government officials and other civic leaders with comprehensive, objective information about the activities of state government year-round.
