Continuing to pile up money in advance of his 2022 re-election bid, Gov. Ron DeSantis’ political committee raised $4.531 million in November, according to a finance report filed Thursday.

The Friends of Ron DeSantis committee had about $66.7 million in cash on hand as of Nov. 30.

The committee topped $4 million in contributions for the ninth straight month. It reported spending about $396,000 in November.

It received 25 contributions of $50,000 or more in November, according to the state Division of Elections database.

That included four separate $50,000 contributions from members of the DeVos family that made a fortune with the Amway Corp. and owns the Orlando Magic basketball team.

A report for DeSantis’ personal campaign account had not been posted on the Division of Elections website Thursday afternoon. State candidates and committees face a Friday deadline for filing reports showing November finance activity.
