Gov. Ron DeSantis’ political committee reeled in $300,000 during the first half of July, nearly half of which came from a wealthy investor, according to the latest numbers reported on the committee’s website. 

Palm Beach billionaire Paul Tudor Jones, a co-founder of the Everglades Foundation, contributed nearly half of it -- $125,000 to the Friends of Ron DeSantis committee on July 8.

Nine other organizations and individuals contributed money to the Republican governor's political committee on the same day, signaling a possible fundraising event. 

Other contributions dated July 8 include $25,000 from Johnathan Stanton, a St. Petersburg construction executive, and $10,000 from Keeping Florida Affordable, a political committee that this year received most of its money from Disney, financial service organizations and Tallahasee-based lobbying firm Southern Strategy Group. 

Other contributions reported by DeSantis' political committee include $5,000 from Armor Correctional Health Services, a Miami-based company that provides medical, dental and mental health services to inmates; $25,000 from the Jacksonville Kennel Club; $2,500 from former U.S. Sen. Alfonse D’Amato, who runs the New York City-based Park Strategies lobbying firm; and $500 from William Manger, the associate administrator for the Office of Capital Access at the U.S. Small Business Administration. 

According to the report on the political committee's website, it spent a total of $10,941, with the bulk of the expenditures going toward fundraising consulting.

My Boy pal makes $seventy five/hour on net. he has been job less for six months. However he earns$16453 genuinely working at the internet for some hours. Immediately from the source..................99kitty.com

Maybe Jones should have used that money to eliminate the Boa Constrictors in the Everglades, rather than just "throwing it into the "political snakepit" hoping for 'Special Interest' "Quid Pro Quo"... Let's get the 'lie-detector' out, and try to determine just who the Governor's ACTUAL constituents really are,...We Citizens; or "MONEYED Special Interests"?
