DeSantis' presidential campaign cost $160 million
Why it matters: The amount underscores the high expectations the governor's supporters and donors had for the campaign, according to the Times.
- Former President Donald Trump's campaign and super PACs spent $210 million in 2023, the Times reported.
Catch up quick: DeSantis, who launched his campaign in May, ended his bid on Jan. 21 after placing about 30 points behind Trump in the Iowa caucuses.
- DeSantis endorsed Trump when he ended his campaign days before the New Hampshire primary last month.
Of note: The filings only include roughly seven months of DeSantis' bid in 2023 and omit any spending in the two weeks in January leading up to the caucuses.
