DeSantis Plans Campaign Tour After Digital Rollout Misfires – UnlistedNews

After his digital launch went wild on Twitter on Wednesday night, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is going analog next week for a more traditional launch of his presidential campaign.

Mr. DeSantis will make stops in the top three nominated states of Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina from May 30 to June 2. The four-day tour through 12 cities and towns is billed as the first leg of his “Great American Comeback.” Tour “Mr. DeSantis will kick off his first in-person event of the campaign in Des Moines, Iowa, on Tuesday. He will remain in Iowa on Wednesday, before traveling to New Hampshire on Thursday and South Carolina on Friday.

Campaigning in a presidential primary is, especially early on, usually a grab-and-smile affair.
