Ron DeSantis has officially lost the support of Ken Griffin, the Republican billionaire who was the biggest donor to the Florida governor’s 2022 re-election campaign.

“I don’t know his strategy,” Griffin said in an interview with CNBC. “It’s not clear to me what voter base he is intending to appeal to.”

Griffin, the CEO of the multinational hedge fund Citadel, gave $5 million to DeSantis’ re-election effort. And he told POLITICO in an interview last November that he was ready to support the governor’s presidential campaign, saying that “our country would be well-served by him as president.”

However, Griffin is now dropping his support for DeSantis as a presidential contender, saying, “First-term governor — just a phenomenal job. But that hasn’t been how this last few months has played out.”

“The ongoing battle with Disney I think is pointless. In fact, it doesn’t reflect well on the ethos of Florida,” Griffin added.

But, unwilling to throw his support behind former President Donald Trump, Griffi told CNBC that he would sit out the GOP primary altogether.
