Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has chosen a finance director for his prospective presidential campaign, two sources close to DeSantis said on Thursday.
Lauren Lofstrom, who served as finance director for Texas Senator Ted Cruz during his 2016 presidential campaign, is joining DeSantis' political operation and has begun meeting with the governor's allies to discuss fundraising strategies, said the sources who spoke on condition of anonymity.
Others who have joined DeSantis' political operation include Jason Johnson, who served as Cruz's chief strategist in 2016, the sources said.

desantis ran for re-election, saying he wanted to serve as governor of florida...
he didn't run on a platform of using the re-election as a stepping stone to a presidential election run.
The sooner he announces, the quicker people will see he's just another politician controlled and supported by the GOPe and big money, and the sooner his career is over.
Oh yeah.... and the obligatory "desantis hasn't said he's running".
Nonsense. These are excellent hires.
said the sources who spoke on condition of anonymity.
Nonsense is all you get from only-Trumpers.
Trump’s record speaks for itself.
President Donald J. Trump’s Accomplishments List:
DeSantis has done nothing yet. I live in Florida and he has done some good things for our State, but when he was a Congressman.........HE DID NOTHING!!! He is a Harvard and Yale grad and I trust NO politician who has graduated from these two evil anti American universities.
Anyone that has karl rove jeb bush the bushes and any other neocons backing him should be cause for concern.
Desantis is a nobody, when you have TDS you can’t see it; when the primary result start to come in, as with Jeb Bush! their eyes will open and they will say we saw it all along.
At this moment, I feel like DeSantis’ best path is to do excellent work as the Governor of Florida for the next several years, inspiring other Governors to fight woke culture so they can get as much attention as DeSantis is getting.
Jeb has the words Future President, written in crayon, across the top of his bedroom mirror.
I believe that is exactly what be intends to do ...
I do not believe—any longer—that DeSantis will run. Trump is the pick and I see DeSantis jumping on Trump’s bandwagon and campaign before too much longer.
He has a new job, which will be an attempt to stop Trump in '24.
What will happen is he'll anger about 75 million of Trump's good friends. He continues this track, and he'll be lucky to win any election on the national level, ever.
We here in Wisconsin also had a very good governor, Scott Walker. He went against the “conventional” wisdom sometines, like DeSantis. In fact, Walker was the only governor in the U.S. to survive a recall election. 53% to 46%, a large margin. Then he ran for the republican presidential nomination and lost. That was the end of his political career. He lost the next gubernatorial election to Tony Evers, a Madison liberal. Bad for Walker, terrible for Wisconsin.
I'm thinking it best (for everyone!) if DeSantis stays in Florida for now.
He better ask for his pay upfront since Ronnie won’t last any longer than Jeb Bush did in 2016.
Trump gets the nominee, it should be conform or be cast out for neocon freaks like you.
Nonsense. Do you line in Florida? Everyone expects him to run and knew it before the last election. Did you go to journalism school? Prvada? Nyt? You could write for them as you just make sh*t up.
desantis just signed a constitutional carry law for us floridians...
it goes into effect july 1, 2023...
Trump has Lindsey Grahamnesty on his re-election committee in South Carolina. If we are going to judge based on who they have to help them get elected, trump is fair game too.
Trump is the reason Ronna McRomney is still RNC Chairman.
Wonderful - might as well picked Lindsey Graham’s wife. Let’s see how that works out.
