TALLAHASSEE - President Donald Trump on Thursday named 19 Florida Republicans, including Gov. Ron DeSantis, U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio and U.S. Sen. Rick Scott, as honorary chairs of his re-election campaign in the Sunshine State.
Lt. Gov. Jeanette Nunez, Attorney General Ashley Moody and state Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis are also included on the list, along with virtually all of the Republicans in Florida’s congressional delegation.
One GOP member of the delegation is not included: U.S. Rep. Francis Rooney. The Naples Republican announced last year he will not run for re-election in 2020.
At the time, Rooney had refused to rule out a vote to impeach the president, but eventually, he voted against impeachment.
