Florida Governor Ron DeSantis broke the New Hampshire Republican Party’s all-time fundraising record on Friday night after his event quickly sold out.

“Record-breaking fundraiser for the state party,” NHGOP Chairman Chris Ager told NH Journal Friday morning. “Largest fundraiser in the history of the NHGOP, raising more than a quarter of a million dollars. Ticket sales were halted earlier this week after we exceeded planned capacity.”

Florida’s Voice reported that Ager announced at the event that $382,000 had been raised.

The news came after a left-wing publication claimed that DeSantis was struggling to sell tickets and that there was not much interest in his trip to the state.

NH Journal reported that, according to sources in both New Hampshire and elsewhere, “those stories were coming from allies of the Trump campaign, who’ve been working the press hard with stories of DeSantis’ alleged shortcomings on the campaign trail.”

Ager told the publication that the original goal was to sell 500 tickets and that the New Hampshire Republican Party quickly exceeded that number in sales.


“And unlike some previous events where tickets were made available to some activist groups for free, these are $150 tickets — a financial boon for the historically cash-strapped state party organization,” the report said. “The 100 VIP tickets, at $500 a pop, are a sell out as well.”
