Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is reportedly planning on helping former President Donald Trump raise money in the coming weeks and months ahead of the 2024 presidential election.

DeSantis told donors and supporters about his plans to fundraise for the former president at a private retreat last weekend, NBC News reported.

DeSantis dropped out of the Republican Party presidential primary on January 21, just days following his second place finish in the Iowa Caucuses.

The GOP primary was largely a two-person race between Trump and DeSantis for the majority of the campaign season.

“I would say the majority in the room would now be willing to help Trump,” a DeSantis bundler who was at the recent meeting told NBC News.

“I will follow the governor’s lead and I will do anything that he or President Trump ask me to do to help him win this election,” said Texas businessman Roy Bailey. “I know where there are DeSantis supporters all over Texas and all over the country that will want to help President Trump.”

“He’s committed to helping Trump in any and every way,” Bailey added. “If we can unlock and motivate our donors for Trump and put more fuel in his tank, that’s what we want to do, and that’s what we need to do to make sure [President Joe] Biden is not reelected.”

The report said that DeSantis’ full backing of the Trump campaign is a major asset for Trump because “DeSantis’ finance committee is full of fundraisers with massive networks” that are able to donate money.


DeSantis followed through on his pledge to endorse the GOP presidential nominee — unlike former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, who has not endorsed Trump — and endorsed Trump back in January, calling him “superior to the current incumbent Joe Biden. That is clear.”

“He has my endorsement because we can’t go back to the old Republican Guard of yesteryear…” DeSantis said.
