This isn't a serious contender. He's doing this for some other purpose. These figures don't make any sense. None of the facts make sense. I was reading this and thinking Scott looked dirty till I got to this part:

---------------

Like Scott, DeSantis has also blown through a prodigious amount of money. The Florida governor entered the race with sky-high expectations and a $20 million pile of cash.

But his campaign, which was built out to convey the image of a front-runner, soon bowed to reality. DeSantis trimmed staff and expenses after burning through $8 million during an early six-week spending spree that included more than 100 paid staffers, a large security detail and luxury travel.

While he has continued to raise respectable sums, he is still spending almost as much as he takes in. That left him with $12.3 million at the end of the quarter.

One variable is his super PAC, Never Back Down, which DeSantis’ political operation seeded with money left over from his 2022 gubernatorial campaign. The group won’t have to disclose its finances until later.

I figured he was preening for a senate run or something. That's a little too much money to blow on too many people all at once though. Rick Santorum won Iowa on a $15k budget not flame, slept in church basements. Why is this bitchass former JAG takin 100 people to luxury hotels the first month with other people's money?

a big part of the appeal is just running around expensing stuff.

Right. Right.

But why does he have such a huge entourage? Why the yuge security detail? That's a lot of people doing nothing but riding on planes, sleeping in hotel rooms and eating comped meals.

What the fuck? Why have a PAC that solicits $5 donations when your campaign is also struggling to raise $5 donations? $5 donations themselves aren't a huge pile of funds but they're a good measure of grassroots enthusiasm. This confounds the data because you don't know how many people got confused and thought this was the official campaign web site:

TSINAH what constitutes "luxury travel" when all of your travel occurs within the state of Florida? And what point does a politician's security detail become unreasonably large? DeSantis has private militia or what?

Anyone want to guess why DeSantis thought online betting was worth the extensive personal effort he put into this when there are so many bigger issues Floridians face?

I take back anything I ever said about DeSantis looking like a shitty lawyer. Harvard:

DeSantis and legislators tried to sidestep that ballot initiative by insisting the new compact was legal because the actual processing of bets occurred on tribal lands even though someone could use a mobile app anywhere in the state. Friedrich said she could not accept this “fiction” and added that, “when a federal statute authorizes an activity only at specific locations, parties may not evade that limitation by ‘deeming’ their activity to occur where it, as a factual matter, does not.”

The District of Columbia Court of Appeals, however, rejected Friedrich’s conclusions.

Is there any way to find out how much a campaign staffer or security guard for DeSantis gets paid? It seems like this PAC shit muddies the waters too if they are providing personnel (even though DeSantis does NOT endorse that PAC and they have no official relationship).
