Crist needs help to stop DeSantis before he becomes too powerful

Fresh off winning his party's nomination for governor, Rep. Charlie Crist had a sobering message for Democrats across the country: Send money to Florida or you may end up with President Ron DeSantis someday.

"It is the Democrats' last chance to stop him and it's going to be a lot cheaper to do it in Florida than it would be in 50 states," Crist said on CNN the morning after his victory and while repeatedly plugging his campaign website. "If you want to help (President) Joe Biden get a second term, we need to shut Ron DeSantis down in Florida."

After Crist secured the nomination, the DGA sent out a mass message to its donor list centered around defeating DeSantis. It raised more money than any post-primary fundraising email this cycle, according to a source with knowledge of the party's finances.

*********************************************

Democrats are looking to steal another election like they tried to do with Liz Cheney by using outside help. They are already targeting DeSantis with lies like they did to Trump.

It is Republicans that tend to favor unlimited campaign contributions;  E.g.  read up on Citizens United vs FEC.     This includes  contributions from out of state individuals for a statewide campaign.   

I could support limiting contributions for a state election (e.g. governor, state legislator) and maybe even national ones (US Congress) only to citizen's of said state.    Only state businesses could make contributions  (thus reducing spending by corporations).       

BUT it is mainly Republicans that are against these type of reforms.     (which is changing since the GOP is becoming more anti-corporation each day).

Newsome sent money. Doesn't actions speak louder than words. I'm sure the people that live in Florida are aware of what the governor did.  His record should define him no matter how much the other raises. Couldn't it backfire. With inflation being bad I'd question how the democrats can get so much money. If they're for taxing the rich and the average guy is struggling to pay his bills. Who would or could donate so much.?
