Ron DeSantis (R),” Williams said. “His commanding 19-point reelection victory, as well as his success in attracting mega-donors like Ken Griffin, Steve Ross, and Steve Schwarzman ahead of a possible 2024 presidential campaign, make him the past year’s big GOP winner.”
  • As noted by Williams, DeSantis has received backing from major GOP megadonors in recent weeks.
