Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is looking out for the GOP.
According to. report from Newsmax, DeSantis donated $2.5 million dollars from his own war chest to help fellow state Republicans in the midterm election; he donated to the Florida Republican Senatorial Committee.
It’s the single largest donation since the committee’s founding in 2014.
DeSantis’ contribution surpassed the $2 million given by Senate President Wilton Simpson from his political committee back in July. Simpson is running for agriculture commissioner.
Republicans, seeking to build a supermajority from their current 23-16 majority, are targeting Democrat incumbents such as Sens. Janet Cruz and Loranne Ausley, Politico reported.
Florida Senate Democrats, who spent money to help defend Minority Leader Lauren Book against a primary challenge, had less than $600,000 in their main campaign account, Politico said.
