Florida Governor and GOP presidential candidate Ron DeSantis cancelled on planned appearances for two political talk shows over the weekend, CNN’s “State of the Union” and NBC’s “Meet The Press.”
“Unfortunately, tomorrow’s scheduled interview on CNN SOTU w/ Ron DeSantis was cancelled by the campaign. We look forward to having the Governor join us on the show in the near future,” CNN’s spokesperson said.
“Meet The Press” host Kristen Welker said on social media that DeSantis pulled out of the show due to unforeseen changes in his schedule.
“Gov. Ron DeSantis has pulled out of his #MTP appearance tomorrow morning due to what a person familiar says is a last-minute schedule change. Per his campaign, he will now hold an event in New Hampshire tomorrow evening.” This announcement comes as DeSantis is actively campaigning in South Carolina,” Welker reported.
The cancellations come as the Florida Governor’s campaign scheduled a new event in Manchester, New Hampshire over the weekend.
“This campaign is built for the long-haul. We intend to compete for every single available delegate in New Hampshire, Nevada, South Carolina and then into March. That begins on Monday’s Iowa Caucus, and the next day we will kick our campaign into overdrive in both South Carolina and New Hampshire. We hope Donald Trump is ready for a long, scrappy campaign as we work to share Ron DeSantis’ vision across America. Game on,” DeSantis campaign said.
