DeSantis Scores Surprise Campaign Win – Joe Biden’s Supporters Didn’t Expect This to Happen

What’s Happening:

In less than two months on the campaign trail Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has made a splash with key voters. Campaign finance results are showing campaign contributions are flowing to the Republican challenger from unexpected areas.

DeSantis is making inroads in key precincts that supported Blue and Red candidates in the past. This is bleeding money from the Democrats and sneaking up on GOP frontrunner former President Donald Trump. These campaign revelations are being covered by one of the largest mainstream publications in the country.

From The Daily Wire:

Nearly half of the $20 million raised by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis since he launched his 2024 White House campaign in May has come from voting precincts that supported President Biden in 2020, according to a new analysis.

That must worry Democrats who have reportedly been struggling for widespread donations from supporters. The current president continues to suffer in the polls along with his vice president. Without massive campaign donations any Democrat seeking the White House is going to struggle through the presidential race.

Some lifelong Democrats are getting behind DeSantis as their candidate of choice. Many are not “fence sitters” but tried-and-true blue Democrats. Attorney Julie Hamill told CNN earlier this month, according to The Daily Wire, that a group of moms refer to DeSantis in a playful way as “Daddy DeSantis.”

From The Daily Wire:

“I have never voted for a Republican presidential candidate,” Hamill said. “I have always considered myself very socially liberal. But as we became more vocal on Twitter, we were really demonized.”

That is a big issue in this campaign as Democrats appear to attack and smear anyone, even staunch supporters within their own party, who dare disagree with the approved narrative.

This latest news analysis also presented an interesting turn of events affecting Trump. While leading significantly in the polls, the former president doesn’t have a stranglehold on Republican donations.

From The Daily Wire:

That revelation was one of several in a new Wall Street Journal analysis that also showed a significant number of Trump’s 2020 donors are backing other candidates this time, with DeSantis the main beneficiary.

DeSantis has publicly pledged to keep his campaign free of fundraising gimmicks and avoid insults of his opponents. Will this calmer approach lead to gains over the long haul of the campaign? Time will tell if DeSantis’ campaign efforts can maintain the financial support to run a lengthy presidential run.

As for Democrats walking away from the party, we can only tell them we’re glad they’re on the right track.

Key Takeaways:

  • GOP challenger pulls cash from Democrat precincts.
  • DeSantis sees campaign boost from lifelong Democrats.
  • Analysis shows Trump losing some donors to DeSantis.
