Florida Governor Ron DeSantis will host a “campaign kick-off” event in Iowa next week, the first in-person event since his campaign officially kicked off on Wednesday.
DeSantis will begin with an event on May 30 in Des Moines, Iowa, followed by a rapid series of events in four other Iowa cities on May 31. He will then travel to New Hampshire and South Carolina on June 1 and 2, according to a campaign. announcement.
“We are focused on Governor DeSantis’ forward-thinking message to restore America to every potential voter in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina,” campaign manager Generra Peck said in a statement. “Our campaign is committed to spending time winning these early candidate states. No one will work harder than Governor DeSantis to share his vision with the country — he’s only just begun to fight.”
DeSantis will travel back and forth to Iowa and New Hampshire, two states he has already visited on stopovers before officially announcing his candidacy.
TWITTER SPACES CRASHES ON REPEAT DURING THE ANNOUNCEMENT OF DESANTIS 2024
DeSantis’ campaign opening moves come after a glitchy campaign launch in a Twitter Live space on Wednesday. DeSantis had planned to announce his entry into the race during an interview with billionaire Twitter owner Elon Musk, but so many people tuned in to listen to the space that Twitter’s servers crashed.
DeSantis’ allies were quick to label it an “internet breaking” moment, while his critics argued it was an embarrassing flop. The Twitter space had 900,000 concurrent viewers at one point, according to screenshots from the space, an all-time high.
President Biden’s staff was quick to seize the opportunity as well, tweeting out a campaign donation ad with the caption “This link works.”
