Garcia comes to the DeSantis-Nuñez Administration following a stint as Political Director for House Campaigns at the Republican Party of Florida.

Prior to that, he worked as Deputy State Director for the Republican National Committee’s “Florida Victory” program. There, Garcia oversaw Hispanic initiatives and field operations.
