A trust linked to California Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom’s family has donated thousands of dollars to Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis amid the two governors’ political feud. According to Fox News, the Siebel Family Revocable Trust, which is run by Kenneth Siebel Jr. and Judith Siebel, Newsom’s wife’s parents, gave $5,000 to the Friends of Ron DeSantis PAC in early April.
As The Daily Wire reports:
The Siebel family has a history of making donations to Republican candidates, including Senators Ron Johnson (R-WI), Tom Cotton (R-AR), and Josh Hawley (R-MO).
The revelation comes as Newsom’s re-election campaign bought approximately $105,000 in cable television ads that aired on Fox News in Florida last month claiming that freedom was under attack in the Sunshine State.
“Freedom is under attack in your state,” Newsom claimed in the ad. “I urge all of you to join the fight, or join us in California, where we still believe in freedom. Don’t let them take your freedom.”
