Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida raised $8.2 million in his first 24 hours as a presidential candidate, his campaign said on Thursday, a huge sum that cements his standing as the leading Republican rival to Donald J. Trump.

Mr. DeSantis’s campaign began on Wednesday evening with a glitch-filled kickoff on Twitter, but that apparently did not slow donor enthusiasm. The campaign said on Wednesday that it had raised $1 million during a single hour.

The $8.2 million figure is more than the $6.3 million that Joseph R. Biden Jr. raised in his first 24 hours as a candidate in 2019, or the $6.1 million raised by former Representative Beto O’Rourke that same year.

DeSantis campaign manager Generra Peck shared a Twitter post announcing the governor raised $8.2 million in the first 24 hours after launching his campaign on Twitter Spaces.

“Yesterday: broke the internet. Today: breaking records,” she tweeted.

DeSantis press secretary Bryan Griffin tweeted, “$8.2 million in the first 24 hours. Our Great American Comeback!”

  1. How much is Dem and Soros money ? Don’t underestimate the idea he’s funded by either just to screw up Trump and Republican Party ! I’m still not sold on DeSantis sorry DML he’s run a state not the Country! Trump now knows what to expect! DeSantis is new and Green, I think he’s gonna find out really soon all the Shit Trump has faced from the Demonic Democrats. Let the Games Begin.

  2. Doners are going to expect returns on their political investment to the DeSantis campaign…I expect DML to go back to pushing the DeSantis bandwagon down the road….pathetic!!! Trump 2024 all the way!!!!

  3. I was told his campaign team is: Bush family; Karl Rove; Laura Ingraham. There are lots of important issues he needs to address in FL now. But he does things in FL he can’t do as President. The Left wants D to keep Trump from getting the nomination. They will be pouring dark money into the Pacs, already are. I hate that he and Trump are not working together.

    • Carla, I also heard he was endorsed by Murdoch and all the never Trumpers! A great big billionaire fundraiser last night in Florida after his debacle Presidential announcement! I listened, he sounded like a robot reading a speech! Notice how he never mentions China! I agree he has done a lot of positive thinks for Florida, however, he’s bought and paid for by all these rinos and cooperations! No thank you! Trump 2024!

  4. Ya’ll need to quit bashing DeSantis!!! He isn’t a fake or part of the deep state. He’s a patriotic. I a Trump supporter but I chose DeSantis. Some of you are pathetic trash.

    • All MAGA is pathetic trash. Uneducated, racist, pathetic white trailer trash.
      You know you’re in a cult when your messiah can do no wrong while your liberal detractors are doing the exact same thing.
      Desantis is going to SMASH Trump and his twin Biden in ‘24. Neither of them stand a chance against Desantis

      • Kohn, it’s rather sad to see you lash out in such a mentally unhinged fashion, and a tiny bit funny. Actually, it’s really funny. You’re projecting all your racism, sexism, xenophobia on others. DeSantis failed to launch, kinda like how you’re likely just typing away on a keyboard on your parents computer in their basement. You’re on here every day and you accomplish nothing because you can’t stop the movement of the American people. Cope

  5. Kohn conscience you nailed it!!! Crazy opens his mouth, and all that comes out is hatred! I love when he posts because it’s just unites the Trump team so much more so keep it going Kohn you’re doing a great job!!!!

  6. OMG. He raised more ten BETO ????? What the hell is a Beto ????? Joe Biden will be re elected. The GOP will become extinct and all because on one man’s ego !

    Trump 2024
