Ron DeSantis’ war with Disney is paying off big for his campaign. According to a new report from the Daily Mail, The Florida Governor has raised more than $105 million dollars for his re-election war chest —a Florida record.
“He’s the first gubernatorial candidate in Florida history to pull in nine figures through donations alone — 138,221 of them, according to campaign filings,” Daily Mail reports.
“DeSantis’ name has dominated headlines in recent months amid a heated ideological battle with the Walt Disney Company over his ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill, and signing legislation making sweeping conservative reforms to abortion access, election security and education,” the report continues.
Team DeSantis brought in nearly $50,000 and 1,500 campaign donations off of two Disney fundraising emails.
“It’s downright scary that such a dangerous figure is one of the GOP’s leading choices for President of the United States,” the DCCC stated.
The Governor’s spokeswoman Christina Pushaw says, for now, DeSantis is focused on the fight in Florida.
