Governor Ron DeSantis was scheduled to speak Sunday at a fundraiser for Republican gubernatorial candidate Lee Zeldin in New York City.
The fundraiser cost donors $25,000-a-plate to hear the popular Florida governor speak in New York.
But Governor DeSantis pulled out of the event on Sunday due to an “unforseen tragedy.”
Governor DeSantis will reschedule the trip to New York.
The New York Post reported:
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis had to pull out of a big-bucks fundraiser for New York gubernatorial candidate Lee Zeldin on Long Island on Sunday because of an “unforeseen tragedy,” the candidate’s rep told The Post.
The Sunshine State Republican was slated to appear at a $25,000-a-plate gathering in Oyster Bay.
“An unforeseen tragedy forced Governor DeSantis to reschedule his trip to New York,” Zeldin spokeswoman Katie Vincentz said, declining to elaborate. “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.”
