The former communications director for Adam Putnam’s gubernatorial campaign will work in the same capacity for the state GOP. But, now she’ll be working to elect her old boss’ former rival in the Republican primary, Ron DeSantis
Republican Party of Florida Chairman Blaise Ingoglia announced Monday that Meredith Beatrice has been hired as the state party’s Communications Director. Ingoglia says her focus through November will be on Florida’s governors contest.
“I am happy to announce the addition of Meredith Beatrice to the Republican Party of Florida Communications team,” said Ingoglia. “Understanding the importance of this election cycle, Meredith will be a great asset to our success, especially in retaining the Governor’s Mansion. We welcome her to the RPOF and look forward to the integral role she will have in media strategy.”
Beatrice says the stakes in this year’s election for governor couldn’t be greater, citing what she calls the “liberals and socialists” who represent the Democratic Party this year, and the “conservative” values of DeSantis.
“Liberals and socialists want to take over our government and undo eight years of successful conservative leadership, and we won’t let that happen. An Andrew Gillum administration would be a disaster for Florida,” said Beatrice
“Andrew Gillum only knows how to foster corruption, increase crime rates, and raise taxes. At every level, he has failed running the city of Tallahassee and can’t be trusted,” Beatrice added. “We’ve got to build on our economic success, protect our environment, and increase educational opportunities for every, which is exactly what Ron DeSantis will accomplish as Governor. I look forward to highlighting the clear choice in this election and working with strong conservatives to keep Florida red.”
Before working on the Putnam campaign, Beatrice served as the Director of External Affairs for the 2017-2018 Constitution Revision Commission and as Communications Director at the Florida Department of State. Before coming to Florida, she worked as a director at JDA Frontline, a public affairs firm in Washington, D.C.
Beatrice will be the primary contact for the RPOF on matters relating to the governor’s race. Ingoglia also announced Yohana de la Torre will continue in her role as a communications consultant to the RPOF. She will be the main contact for inquiries relating to RPOF Chairman Blaise Ingoglia, as well as party-related activities.
