Republican Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam, a 2018 candidate for Florida governor, will appear next Monday at a Forum Club of the Palm Beaches lunch that organizers originally hoped would pair him with GOP rival Ron DeSantis.

DeSantis, however, had a scheduling conflict and could not attend the event at the Kravis Center in West Palm Beach, his campaign said.

DeSantis and Putnam have opened Republican campaigns for governor. House Speaker Richard Corcoran, R-Land-O’Lakes, is also expected to get in the GOP nominating contest.

Tickets for the Forum Club lunch are $40 for members, $60 for guests of members and $85 for the general public. Tickets can be purchased at the Forum Club website  or by contacting Kelsey Joyce at kjoyce@forumclubpb.com.

Putnam and DeSantis — and Corcoran, if he gets in the race — are slated to appear at a Florida Family Policy Council forum in Orlando on May 5 and a Broward County Lincoln Day dinner on May 18.

The Republican Party of Florida is also teaming with Fox News to host a nationally televised GOP candidates debate in Orlando on June 28.
