DeSantis matches Gillum’s fundraising haul


Democrat Andrew Gillum posted a huge fundraising number ($4m) shortly after winning his gubernatorial primary race, outraising Republican Ron DeSantis $1 million effort in the latest fundraising cycle.

With DeSantis’ Friends of Ron DeSantis political committee having raised another $3,459,500, does DeSantis have the advantage, or does it belong to Gillum?

Also, take into consideration that the Republican Party of Florida has raised $7.7 million, most to be spent on DeSantis gubernatorial race.
