DeSantis turns to Fox News, Trump world for campaign events

Fox News host Sean Hannity campaigned with Florida gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis this month; Fox personalities Michael Levin and Jeanine Pirro have upcoming events with DeSantis.

President Donald Trump and Fox News continue to be big factors in U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis‘s Republican campaign for Florida governor as his Aug. 28 primary against Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam approaches.

DeSantis, who has been endorsed by Trump, is a frequent guest on Fox News shows and announced his candidacy on the network in January.

DeSantis recently campaigned with Fox superstar Sean Hannity¬†and will appear Saturday in Jupiter with conservative radio host Mark Levin, who also has a Fox show. The DeSantis-Levin event is at Trump National Golf Club — the first DeSantis campaign event at a Trump property.

President Donald Trump retweeted an announcement of this Ron DeSantis campaign event today from the United Kingdom.

The Fox-Trump worlds will line up for DeSantis again next week when he holds a campaign event in Orlando with Donald Trump Jr. and Fox personality Jeanine Pirro.

The president, who is in the United Kingdom today for meetings with Prime Minister Theresa May and Queen Elizabeth II, took time to retweet an announcement of the Orlando event.
