Billionaire and environmental activist Tom Steyer who already put forth more than $1.4 million in an independent expenditure to help Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum claim the Democratic gubernatorial nomination, is committing much more for the remaining weeks of the general election.
Sources indicate that Steyer is planning to spend and distribute over $5.2 million in order to help Gillum, giving it to labor and other left of center organizations in order to fund messages to help Gillum and hinder the GOP nominee, resigned Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Palm Coast/Daytona Beach). The new contributions would bring his total support giving for Mayor Gillum to a huge $6.6 million.
