DeSantis political group piles up cash for reelection campaign, raising more than $9 million so far this year

By contrast, Florida Consumers First, a political committee tied to state Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried, raised about $285,000 during the first three months of the year, including nearly $149,000 in March. Fried, the only statewide elected Democrat, is widely expected to run against DeSantis in 2022.
