Ron DeSantis DONATION Comes From a Mysterious Source
(RepublicanDaily.org) – Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) has made himself one of the most popular conservative leaders in the nation over the last few years. One of his main political rivals has been California’s Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom; the pair have frequently sparred over policy issues during their respective governorships. In an ironic twist of fate, members of Newsom’s family have made political donations to DeSantis.

An exclusive Fox News report from Tuesday, August 30, revealed the Friends of Ron DeSantis PAC received a $5,000 donation from the Siebel Family Revocable Trust in April of this year. Judith A. Siebel and Kenneth F. Siebel Jr., the administrators of the trust, are Gavin Newsom’s mother- and father-in-law. Kenneth Siebel has also donated to the campaigns of other high-profile Conservatives, including Senators Tom Cotton (R-AR) and Josh Hawley (R-MO).
DeSantis and Newsom are both seen as potential presidential nominees. They have criticized each other repeatedly on issues like COVID-19 containment measures, California’s homeless crisis, and the high level of net migration from California to Florida. Newsom recently announced he was handing $100,000 in campaign funding to Rep. Charlie Crist (D-FL), DeSantis’ Democratic opponent in this year’s gubernatorial election in Florida.
Do you think we’ll see DeSantis and Newsom go head-to-head in a future presidential election?
