Ponte Vedra Beach, FL – The Ron DeSantis for Florida campaign released the following statement after news that the campaign had raised nearly twice as much ($772K) as the Senate campaigns of Republicans David Jolly ($112K) and Lopez-Cantera ($318K) in the 4th quarter of 2015. The DeSantis for Florida campaign finished 2015 with $2.6m cash on hand – far more than any of his opponents.

“It’s become clear that Ron DeSantis is the only candidate who will have both the resources necessary and the conservative grassroots support to beat Patrick Murphy or Alan Grayson in November,” said Brad Herold, campaign manager for Ron DeSantis for Florida. “One of our opponents has already given up on fundraising or running a serious campaign while the other continues to struggle. Conservatives throughout Florida are uniting behind our campaign because Congressman DeSantis is the only candidate who will keep Florida’s Senate seat in Republican hands.”
