With Republican gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis locked in a battle with Democratic nominee Andrew Gillum, the Republican Governors Association has funneled another $2.41 million to Florida, according to a new finance report.
Between Sept. 8 and Sept. 14, the association put the money into “Florida Facts,” a type of entity known as an electioneering communications organization. Florida Facts during the same timeframe spent $2.51 million, with most of the money going to California-based Target Enterprises, LLC for television ads, the report shows. The Republican Governors Association in early August also put $2.45 million into Florida Facts, which during the same period spent $2.35 million.
The RGA has already released a TV commercial in support of DeSantis. It has Gillum’s support for a $1 billion tax increase and the elimination of the federal immigrations enforcement agency.
The RGA has committed $10 million in the race for Governor. The Democratic Governors Association has, so far, spent $2 million on behalf of Gillum.
