Gov. Ron DeSantis’ political committee remained on the sidelines in July, marking the fourth consecutive month it has had little financial activity, according to a newly filed finance report.

The Friends of Ron DeSantis committee did not receive any contributions during the month and only collected $276.17 in interest on a bank account.

It spent $10,423 during the month on consulting, accounting and software expenses.

The committee, which had a similar lack of activity in April, May and June, has remained largely idle since the coronavirus pandemic hit the state. Nevertheless, it had about $7 million in cash on hand as of July 31, the report shows.
