Two senior advisers to Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ presidential campaign are leaving this week to help a pro-DeSantis outside effort, a move that comes as he struggles to gain traction against former President Donald Trump.

Dave Abrams, the campaign’s communications adviser and media director, and Tucker Obenshain, who led external affairs, will leave to help a nonprofit outside political group that will support the governor, the campaign confirmed in a statement. . Obenshain will lead the group that is expected to host events, as part of what the campaign describes as a « DeSantis is everywhere strategy, » as it looks to compete in early candidate states, including Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina.

« The more people hear and see Governor DeSantis and his forward-thinking vision to correct Joe Biden’s failures, the better our path to victory, » Andrew Romeo, DeSantis’ campaign spokesman, said in a statement. “Gov. DeSantis will attend events with dozens of organizations celebrating his politics and leadership. The ‘DeSantis is everywhere’ tour has begun. »
