Christina Pushaw, Gov. Ron DeSantis’ Press Secretary, departed the administrative Friday to join the Republican Governor’s re-election campaign.

The Florida Standard, a conservative new media outlet, was the first to report Pushaw’s shuffle and published her resignation letter

which Pushaw sent to Chief of Staff James Uthmeier and Director of Administration Dawn Hanson on Friday. She will become the campaign’s Director of Rapid Response beginning Monday.

Deputy Press Secretary Bryan Griffin is expected to step in as lead Press Secretary, according to Pushaw’s letter.

“For the last 15 months, I have been  blessed to work with the most dedicated and talented public servants in  the country, inspired by the Governor’s courage, leadership and bold  agenda.”

Pushaw thanked DeSantis, Uthmeier and Communications Director Taryn Fenske for her time as Press Secretary.

“You gave me latitude to respond to  media narratives in direct and often unconventional ways, allowing me to  redefine this role for a leader whose actions speak for themselves,”  she wrote.
