Ron DeSantis raises $2 million in February

Republican Congressman Ron DeSantis pulled in $2 million in February for his gubernatorial campaign and has in short order assembled a big pile of cash.

His campaign said the $2 million was raised between the Ron DeSantis for Governor Campaign ($471,000) and the Friends of Ron DeSantis Political Committee ($1,616,000).

"This new fundraising haul bolsters DeSantis' campaign to a collective total of more than $5.4 million in 50 days, with over $5.2 million cash on hand," the campaign said.

UPDATE: A big chunk of the 50-day haul, $2.4 million, is a transfer from a PAC that has been raising money since May 2017.
