Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis will purportedly visit Pennsylvania in May, increasing speculation that the Republican is eyeing a run for president.

DeSantis will speak to the Allegheny County Republican Party on May 20, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer, which cited three Pennsylvania Republicans familiar with the matter.

Pennsylvania represents a key battleground state in presidential contests. In 2020, President Joe Biden won the state by just over 1% of the vote.

DeSantis has been the subject of much media attention over his handling of the coronavirus.

“The only thing he has to worry about is too much hubris,” Tony Fabrizio, a Republican pollster who previously worked for DeSantis, told the Wall Street Journal on April 9. “It’s one thing to stand there and say, ‘All of you derided what we did in Florida, but we stood our ground on principles and today we are stronger.’ But you have to avoid the ‘Mission Accomplished,’ Bush-on-the-aircraft-carrier look.”
