Ron DeSantis super PAC raises $1.2-mil



The super PAC backing Republican Ron DeSantis for US Senate, Fighting for Florida Fund, reports that it pulled in $1.2 million on contributions as of September 30th of this year.

“From our start in late August, we set an internal goal of banking $1 million in our first month of operations.  Donor support for Ron’s conservative message proved to be so strong that we cleared that hurdle with room to spare,” said Fighting for Florida Fund’s senior advisor Nelson Warfield.

“The Florida US Senate race is always in some sense a national contest.  And Ron DeSantis’ powerful conservative appeal is already generating enthusiasm not only across the state but across the country,” Warfield declared.
