Boy, are Democrats angry with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis right about now. Not that they’ve ever been happy about this popular Republican.
DeSantis exposed the ugly, double-standard of Joe Biden’s party. They were happy to let the Southern border rage, undefended. But the moment 50 aliens show up on Martha’s Vineyard, the left went insane.
But all their attacks on DeSantis appear to be falling flat. Because the takes-no-prisoners Republican like reported a major victory.
Governor Ron DeSantis’ (R-FL) political operation has raised a historic $177.4 million, more than any other governor in history…
Open Secrets reported that a review of state campaign finance records showed DeSantis’ re-election campaign has raised more than $31.4 million since January 2021, while DeSantis’ state-level PAC, Friends of Ron DeSantis, has raised $146 million since January 2019…
Biden has only raised $11,850,907, while Governor Gavin Newsom (D-CA), who has repeatedly sought to boost his national profile by attacking DeSantis, has only raised $6,776,976…

This will really get liberals foaming at the mouth. As the media flips out over DeSantis’s move flying aliens to Martha’s Vineyard, he posted a record-breaking fundraising haul.
He raised $177.4 million since the start of 2021–more than any governor in U.S. history. It’s not a mystery how this was possible.
Unlike many politicians elected to office, DeSantis has made good on his promises to voters. He ran as a conservative and he’s led as a conservative. He’s scored major wins for Republicans in Florida, keeping the state open and safe even during the COVID pandemic. His influence has been so profound, that there are more registered Republican voters in the state than Democrats–for the first time ever.
Because of DeSantis’s unabashed commitment to conservative values, supporters have been opening their wallets. He’s raised an incredible sum of money. And he’s sharing it with down-ballot candidates–which will give them a big leg up during the final weeks of the 2020 midterms.
To put DeSantis’s record haul into perspective, keep in mind that Joe Biden has only managed to raise $11.8 million over the same period of time. Gov. Newsom, who has made himself a rival to DeSantis, has only raised $6.7 million.
Donald Trump has raised $131 million over the same period of time–putting him behind the Republican governor.
DeSantis’s name has been floated around quite a bit as a possible 2024 contender. The man has yet to announce any plans to run for president. But if he continues to score big wins for the GOP over the next few years, who knows?
He might even give Trump a run for his money!
