Florida’s Secretary of State, Laurel Lee announced that after three years she is resigning from her position.

The Washington Examiner reports:

Laurel Lee, who oversees the Division of Elections, submitted her letter of resignation to Gov. Ron DeSantis on Thursday, according to a spokesperson for the governor. Lee’s resignation is effective May 16, says the letter obtained by News 6.

“I will continue to seek what’s best for the citizens of Florida and will always be proud of what we accomplished together,” Lee wrote in her letter.

“Together, we protected and grew Florida’s competitive business climate, preserved Florida’s incredible historical resources, supported Florida’s arts and culture community, and strengthened Florida’s election systems,” Lee said. “Because of your leadership, the Department of State is stronger and better than when we found it.”

“I am grateful for your support throughout my tenure, and I am honored to have been part of your vision for our state,” Lee said in her letter, adding that she was looking forward to “what the future holds.”

Some have speculated that Lee is preparing to campaign for Florida’s 15th Congressional District.

She’s assuming we all supported her. Why is she really leaving?

I´ll be the first to say this is the move to prepare Lee for the governorship and DeSanti for the white house. She will be the first woman governor of Florida and she is the continuation of the Trump-DeSanti Doctrine. And DeSanti up to now is a cinch for the presidency, incredible track records and there was no animosity or regrets or frustrations in her letter. So That is the plan.

IF TRUMP DOESN’T RUN IN 2024, THEN RON DESANTIS WILL GET MY VOTE. EVEN THOUGH I’D HATE TO LOSE HIM AS OUR GOVERNOR.

I am a snowbird, three months every year, for 20 years. Desantis would get my vote in a second! Even though I am a MAGA supporter.
