(FOX NEWS) – Those in attendance at a Sunday campaign event for New York gubernatorial hopeful Rep. Lee Zeldin, R-N.Y., hoped to see Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, but the popular Republican ended up canceling.
Zeldin is looking to wrest the governorship from incumbent Gov. Kathy Hochul, and the $25,000-per-person event was expected to be a big fundraiser. Now the congressman’s team is figuring out another possible opportunity to have DeSantis join them on the campaign trail, the New York Post reported.
“An unforeseen tragedy forced Gov. DeSantis to reschedule his trip to New York,” Zeldin spokeswoman Katie Vincentz told the Post. “While we’re rescheduling with Gov. DeSantis for a later date, tonight’s fundraiser will proceed and is expected to raise almost a million dollars.”
Fox News reached out to the DeSantis campaign for more information, but they did not immediately respond.
