While Democrats are dominating the congressional money wars, one Republican who has jumped out to a big monetary advantage is former US Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Palm Coast/Daytona Beach), the Florida gubernatorial nominee. He reports raising $28 million compared to Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum (D) bringing in $12.2 million. This, of course doesn’t count outside independent spending, which makes up some of the wide deficit that Mr. Gillum faces. Polling consistently shows the gubernatorial race within the polling margin of error with little movement since the August 28th primary.
