WASHINGTON — “When President Donald Trump first threatened to pull the Republican National Convention out of Charlotte, North Carolina, Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida started campaigning to bring the event to his state.”

“But now, as convention planners in Jacksonville, Florida, seek to raise tens of millions of dollars on an almost impossibly rushed time frame, and in the middle of a raging pandemic, the governor is hindering those efforts, interviews show.”

“DeSantis, a Republican, has directed his top fundraiser, Heather Barker, to tell donors not to give to the convention because of a personal dispute between the governor and Susie Wiles, his former campaign manager who is serving as an informal adviser to the convention planners, according to multiple people familiar with his actions.” Yahoo News reports.
