Gov. DeSantis’ political committee raised more than $700K in January


Gov. Ron DeSantis has continued raising boatloads of cash for his political committee, new finance reports show.

According to finance reports filed with the Florida Division of Elections, the Friends of Ron DeSantis committee brought in $705,000  last month — its biggest haul since October.

The money came in across 31 contributions. TECO Energy topped the list with a $100,000 check, followed by Dentaquest PAC, Daytona Toyota and Zgroup advertising at the $50,000 level. A dozen others sent the committee $25,000 checks, including Independent Living Systems, Dosal Tobacco Corporation and red-light camera company American Traffic Solutions.

Friends of Ron DeSantis spent just $1,350 last month, all of it going to voter information and software company Aristotle International.

January marked the fourth consecutive month of six-figure hauls for the committee. It raised $727,000 in October, $521,000 in November and $502,000 in December. The committee entered February with just under $9.5 million on hand.

DeSantis has not yet opened a campaign account for reelection in 2022.

Since its founding three years ago, Friends of Ron DeSantis has collected $50.3 million from donors. Much of that money was collected for DeSantis’ gubernatorial campaign, with about $10.5 million flowing in after Election Day 2018.
