Gavin Newsom’s In-Laws Are Supporting Ron DeSantis

California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D), in recent months, has made it his business to go after Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R).

During the 4th of July holiday, Newsom released ads in Florida, accusing DeSantis of being against freedom, while urging Florida residents to move to California.

This ad was widely panned, given Newsom’s history of forcing through lockdowns and various mandates (that he repeatedly violated), while DeSantis opposed these measures and defended Floridians’ freedoms.

In the wake of the Florida Democratic Party nominating Charlie Crist to challenge DeSantis in Florida’s general election for governor, Newsom announced his own donation of $100,000 to Crist’s campaign.

However, new reports reveal the California governor’s own in-laws aren’t on the same page with him politically.

Surprising Support For DeSantis
The Siebel Family Revocable Trust Fund donated $5,000 to the Florida governor’s Friends of Ron DeSantis PAC just back in April. This trust fund is run by the parents of Newsom’s wife, thereby making his vendetta against DeSantis ironic to many Americans.

Kenneth Siebel, the California governor’s father-in-law, has donated not just to DeSantis, but to other well-known Republicans as well. These Republicans include Sens. Josh Hawley (R-MO), Ron Johnson (R-WI), and Tom Cotton (R-AK).

Today, Newsom continues to reiterate that DeSantis should be made a “one-term governor,” despite polls showing DeSantis far ahead of Crist. Thus far, the California governor has yet to weigh in on the donation his in-laws made to his Floridian counterpart.

Bad News For Newsom
For an unknown reason, the California governor appears to believe his endorsement of Crist will carry weight with Florida’s voters. However, Newsom’s support of Crist has been slammed by many Florida residents who like DeSantis and are more than eager to reelect him.

In addition to leading Crist in the polls, DeSantis has also outraised the Florida Democrat many times over. This, alone, gives DeSantis an edge in competing, running ads, and otherwise getting his messages out to the people of Florida.

Newsom may also be unhappy to learn that in Florida, there are far more GOP voters than Democrats. This, too, works against the odds of Newsom getting his wish of having Crist in the Florida governor’s mansion.
