Campaign finance reports hint at trouble for DeSantis

by ian

Presidential hopeful Ron DeSantis may be in trouble ,according to new campaign financial reports.

It seems the Florida governor may be lacking grassroots support, as less than 15% of contributions for the second quarter came in amounts less than $200.

The DeSantis campaign employs 90 people, which is more than double the employees of Trump’s campaign. This means that the Florida governor has already burned through $8 million of the $20 million dollars in donations he started out with.

Elsewhere, it looks like President Joe Biden is running a bare-bones operation. His campaign is off to a slow start with only 4 employees and has only spent a little over $1 million to date.

Meanwhile, over 85% of Turning Point Action Conference attendees said that Trump is their first pick for president. DeSantis placed third with only 4.3% of the vote.
