GOP Reps to Join DeSantis on Campaign Trail in Iowa
With just one month remaining before the Iowa Caucuses kick-off, the DeSantis campaign will be getting a boost from several conservative leaders on the campaign trail. Reps. Thomas Massie (R-KY) and Chip Roy (R-TX), as well as Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt (R), will join the Florida Governor over the next two weeks as he tours the Hawkeye State, according to a new report.
According to Fox News, Massie is scheduled to attend a 2nd Amendment town hall with DeSantis on Saturday in Johnston, Iowa. The Kentucky Republican endorsed DeSantis for President in April, before his campaign launch.
According to the report, DeSantis is also expected to be with Chip Roy from Monday to Wednesday. He had previously endorsed DeSantis for President in March.
“In one month, Iowans can send a loud message that they choose principles over princes and choose Ron DeSantis for his bold, honest leadership and the proven courage to bring a reckoning to Washington, D.C.,” Roy said in a statement to the network.
“I look forward to spending time with Iowans to share my heartfelt belief Gov. DeSantis is the proven leader we all need to send Biden back to his basement and to carry America forward, not backward, as we start a new era of freedom, security, and prosperity,” Roy continued. “As he has always done, Gov. DeSantis will get the job done – ending the invasion of our southern border, shrinking government, and making clear to radical progressives and establishment Republicans that it is a new day in Washington.”
I plan to be in Iowa this weekend with my favorite candidate. Whether my choice is your choice or not, I hope to meet some of my online liberty 🗽 friends. Details to come!

Following Roy’s appearance in Iowa, Oklahoma Governor Stitt is expected to join DeSantis on the campaign trail from Wednesday to Thursday. He also praised DeSantis in a statement published by Fox News,
“I watched Ron DeSantis lead through COVID, and I know that as president he will fight for Americans the same way he fought for the people of Florida to protect our liberties and freedoms,” Stitt said in a statement. “I can’t wait to tell Iowans firsthand that he has never made a promise he did not keep, and his record of results proves we can trust him to beat Joe Biden and serve two terms to secure our southern border, end Washington’s reckless spending spree and runaway inflation and unleash our domestic energy production.”

After completing his 99-county tour of Iowa earlier this month, DeSantis has continued to court voters, hoping to make inroads against GOP frontrunner Donald Trump.
“Riding a wave of momentum in Iowa following historic endorsements from Iowa Gov Kim Reynolds, Iowa Kingmaker Bob Vander Plaats, and 42 state legislators, Ron DeSantis is now enlisting some of the conservative movement’s best fighters – Congressmen Roy and Massie and Governor Kevin Stitt – to help him get his message out in the Hawkeye State,” DeSantis communications director Andrew Romeo said in a statement to Fox News.
“Iowans will hear directly from these national leaders who’ve seen first-hand Ron DeSantis fight the tough battles against the left and deliver big wins for conservatives,” Romeo added. “They’ll make sure there is no doubt in the minds of Iowans that Ron DeSantis will deliver on his promises to stop the invasion at our southern border, restore our economy, and revive America.”
