Senate candidate Ron DeSantis plans Miami fundraiser

Ron DeSantis will ask Republicans for money this Friday at a cocktail reception in Miami.

The Ponte Vedra Beach congressman, who is running to replace U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, will be hosted by two past supporters of Ted Cruz's presidential campaign.

Leo and Lourdes de la Pena backed Cruz over hometown favorite Rubio in the March 15 primary. Now they're behind DeSantis and not his local rival, Lt. Gov. Carlos Lopez Cantera.

Donors must contribute $2,700 per person to attend, and contribute or raise at least $10,000 to co-host the event.
