Florida House Speaker Paul Renner and Senate President Kathleen Passidomo are considering the change should DeSantis become the GOP nominee, Politico reports.
“If an individual who is Florida governor is running for president, I think he should be allowed to do it,” Passidomo said. “That’s a big honor and a privilege, so it is a good idea.”
Florida law requires an elected position running for a different office provide a letter of resignation if terms of the two offices overlap.
Early surveys show DeSantis is among the top possible 2024 GOP contenders, but he’s yet to say whether he will run. He just won reelection earlier this month.
According to Politico, if DeSantis is going to run, he probably won’t announce until March of 2023.
