It looks like California Governor Gavin Newsom’s in-laws are fans of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
According to donation records, Kenneth Siebel Jr. and Judith Siebel, the parents of Newsom’s wife, made a $5,000 donation to the Friends of Ron DeSantis PAC in April.
Democratic California Gov. Gavin Newsom has been a vocal critic of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, in recent weeks, but Newsom’s in-laws seem to approve of the popular Republican.
According to contribution records on the Friends of Ron DeSantis PAC website, the Siebel Family Revocable Trust made a $5,000 contribution on April 6, 2022.
That trust is run by Kenneth F. Siebel Jr. and Judith A. Siebel, the parents of Newsom’s wife, Jennifer Siebel, records obtained by Fox News Digital show.
This comes as a feud between Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and California Governor Gavin Newsom heats up.
Newsom aired attack ads in Florida against DeSantis and has donated $100,000 to his opponent Democrat Charlie Crist.
Newsom has aired attack ads in Florida making the claim that “freedom is under attack” under DeSantis, urging residents to flee to California, according to The Washington Times. DeSantis responded that he sees plenty of California license plates in Florida.
KTTV-TV reported last week that the California governor revealed he had donated $100,000 to former Florida governor and Democrat Charlie Crist, DeSantis’ opponent in his upcoming race, telling reporters that he doesn’t support candidates who “demean people.”
“You want to ask what my ‘why’ is in life? I don’t like bullies,” Newsom said. “Who the hell raised these guys? What kind of people are they?”
Newsom was mocked over it.
“Gavin Newsom’s father-in-law donated to Ron DeSantis,” conservative podcaster Liz Wheeler tweeted. “That is objectively hilarious.”
“I’m sure he’s humiliated because of how aggressive he’s come out against Ron DeSantis,” conservative radio personality Clay Travis said on an appearance on Fox News on Wednesday. “There’s a possibility guys, that this could be a presidential election in 2024 or 2028. These guys don’t like each other. And they have such diametrically opposed perspectives when it comes to COVID.
“Ron DeSantis got everything right on the data,” he added, “and I think [that] deep in his heart, Gavin Newsom knows that, and he’s so bothered by it that he can’t stop talking about [DeSantis].”
