DeSantis Destroys Democrat Challenger In Campaign Fundraising By $8 Million

Published on

Gov. Ron DeSantis, (R-FL) has outraised Democrat challenger Charlie Crist by more than eight million since the end of July.

According to the latest campaign finance reports obtained by Florida’s Voice, DeSantis outperformed Crist, accumulating $12.9 million in funds since July 30, while Crist sits at a low $4.7 million during the same timeframe.

In just the last 30 days alone, DeSantis raised almost $13 million, more than doubling Crist amidst primary nomination.

The Republican incumbent’s war chest spells an even stronger financial position, currently resting at over $122 million to Crist’s just over $4 million.

With just under two months away, pushing candidates into the final stretch where ad-buying and campaign expenditures are expected to increase through the beginning of November, DeSantis leads Crist by an average of 4%, much greater than his 2018 win margin of 0.4%.

On another recent poll giving DeSantis a 5-point lead, DeSantis campaign spokeswoman Christian Pushaw said they do not pay such polls any mind.

“Political interests are almost always at the root of public polls – which is precisely why we’ve never paid them any mind, and have no plans to start,” she said.

The general election will be held on Nov. 8.
