Ron DeSantis rakes in nearly $775K for U.S. Senate race in Florida

via @adamsmithtimes

The Ron DeSantis U.S. Senate campaign tells us the northeast Florida Republican raised another $772,000 in the three-month period ending Dec. 31 and that he has more than $2.5 million on hand. We're still awaiting word from his Republican primary opponents, David JollyCarlos Lopez-Cantera and Todd Wilcox.

DeSantis spokesman Brad Herold also dismissed Rep. Jolly's proposal to bar federal officials from directly soliciting campaign contributions.

“You’re not going to beat Patrick Murphy or Alan Grayson, and help keep the U.S. Senate in Republican hands by tying both hands behind your back. Ron DeSantis has proven he’s the only candidate in this race who can put together a winning statewide campaign and we’re going to continue to do that," Herold said.
