DeSantis ‘Unforeseen Tragedy’ Revealed After Canceling Major Fundraiser

Posted by DINO PORRAZZO at AMERICAS FREEDOM FIGHTERS

The great governor of Florida Ron DeSantis was forced to cancel his appearance at a $25,000-per-plate New York fundraiser for Republican gubernatorial candidate Lee Zeldin which was no doubt very disappointing to many of the the attendees but he did it for a good reason.

A member of his security detail died in a motor vehicle accident while responding to a crime scene and when DeSantis became aware of the tragedy he immediately returned to Florida for several reasons including to comfort the family.

The New York Post reported that DeSantis backed out of the fundraiser in order to attend a Monday memorial service for a member of his security detail who died in the line of duty.

Florida Department of Law Enforcement Special Agent Jose Perez was responding to a call in an unmarked cruiser on Aug. 2 when he was struck by Javier Sandoval, 35, in Miami.

Perez was rushed to the hospital with serious injuries and died on Aug. 20.

Sandoval was later arrested and hit with several charges, including DUI manslaughter and vehicular homicide.

“Today we mourn the tragic loss of FDLE Special Agent Jose Perez, who died in the line of duty,” Florida first lady Casey DeSantis wrote on Twitter ahead of the service Monday. “With over 20 years in the U.S. armed forces & more than 30 years in law enforcement, he lived a valiant life serving our nation & state. The entire @fdlepio community is in our prayers.”

DeSantis was slated to headline a $25,000-a-plate fundraiser for Zeldin in Oyster Bay on Sunday night, an event the candidate’s reps said was expected to raise nearly $1 million.

Conservative commentator Dan Bongino filled in for DeSantis, sources said.

Zeldin told attendees that Perez was part of DeSantis’ security team and that he was returning to Florida to attend the service in his honor.

While unable to attend the evening event, DeSantis was in Deal, New Jersey, earlier in the day at the home of Jay Cayre, head of Midtown Equities, sources told The Post.

A spokesperson for Zeldin said DeSantis would return to New York at a later date for an event with the candidate.

It is imperative that Zeldin beats the current governor, Democrat Kathy Hochul, who replaced disgraced Andrew Cuomo who resigned following allegations of sexual harassment among other things.

Our hearts, thoughts and prayers go out to the family, friends and colleagues of Special Agent Jose Perez.

So sad and so young.
