Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, a potential 2024 Republican presidential candidate, is joining rallies this month in four states to campaign for GOP candidates, including those endorsed by former President Donald Trump. 

The conservative student group affiliate Turning Point Action said it is holding “Unite and Win” rallies featuring DeSantis in Arizona, New Mexico, Ohio and Pennsylvania, including for GOP US Senate nominees Blake Masters in Arizona on Aug. 14 and JD Vance in Ohio on Aug. 19 in races that will help determine party control of the upper chamber. Masters and Vance are among Republicans backed by Trump.
