They are making preparations to contest former President Donald Trump, who presently holds an overwhelming 44-point lead over the group of Republican candidates.
The fundraising successes are additionally reinforced by the remarkable figures accumulated in the third quarter. Amidst this time frame, DeSantis' campaign successfully amassed an impressive $11.2 million in contributions and concluded with a financial balance of $12.3 million.
