Florida state Sen. Travis Hutson has introduced a proposal to amend the state’s “resign-to-
run” law, which would allow Gov. Ron DeSantis to announce his candidacy for the presidency without resigning as governor. The proposed amendment is part of Senate Bill 7050, a larger piece of legislation related to state elections. It would change the existing provision in Florida that requires any public official seeking federal office to resign from their current state position if the terms run concurrently with each other.
