    DeSantis Breaks Major Engagement After ‘Unforeseen Tragedy’

    Published on

    Sunday, Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis postponed an event in the state of New York due to a “unexpected tragedy.”

    There was no quick explanation for the nature of the disaster.

    Fox News stated that it requested an explanation from the DeSantis campaign but had not received a response as of Monday morning.

    According to the New York Post, DeSantis was set to attend a $25,000-per-plate luncheon in behalf of Republican Rep. Lee Zeldin of New York.

    The congressman is challenging Democratic New York Gov. Kathy Hochul.

    Katie Vincentz, a spokeswoman for Zeldin, told the Post on Sunday, “An unforeseen tragedy forced Governor DeSantis to reschedule his trip to New York.”

    “While we’re rescheduling with Governor DeSantis for a later date, tonight’s fundraiser will proceed and is expected to raise almost a million dollars.”

    Hochul’s campaign has featured assaults on Florida and DeSantis, including one directed towards Jewish New Yorkers on August 10 during a Holocaust commemoration ceremony.

    “I just want to say to the 1.77 million Jews who call New York home: Thank you for calling New York home,” she said, according to the Post. “Don’t go anywhere or to another state. Florida is overrated.”

    According to Newsmax, at the time, DeSantis campaign spokesperson Lindsey Curnutte said Hochul should look at her own mess.

    “An event about Holocaust education is not the time to launch cheap attacks at a fellow governor,” Curnutte said. “Kathy Hochul’s tasteless comments were offensive to thousands of Jewish people who are fleeing her state because of New York’s oppressive taxes, shuttered businesses, crime-infested cities, and needless mandates.”

    Hochul further slammed Florida last week at a Kingston, New York, rally where she attacked Zeldin, former President Donald Trump, and Republican Dutchess County Executive and congressional candidate Marc Molinaro, according to the New York Post.

    “We are fighting for democracy. We’re fighting to bring government back to the people and out of the hands of dictators,” Hochul said at a rally for Democrat Pat Ryan, who is Molinaro’s congressional opponent. CONTINUE READING…
