The fundraising haul cements DeSantis as a power player in the Republican party and a serious contender for president in 2024.
Another win from DeSantis comes in his fundraising for his gubernatorial reelection in Florida. He has raised more than $100 million and CNN notes that he is the first gubernatorial candidate in history to “to reach the nine-figure milestone solely through donations.”
DeSantis is also winning on education. A recent poll by the American Federation for Teachers found that swing-state voters approve of DeSantis’ position on education. His positions are more popular than the teacher’s union who conducted the poll.
