Things may get awkward around the Newsom dinner table.
According to a report from Fox News, a trust linked to California Governor Gavin Newsom’s in-laws made a $5,000 contribution on April 6, 2022 to the Friends of Ron DeSantis PAC.
From Fox News:
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.
Newsom’s father-in-law Kenneth Siebel has a long history of making donations to GOP candidates, according to Federal Election Commission filings. His most recent donations include contributions to the campaigns of Republicans Sens. Ron Johnson, Tom Cotton and Josh Hawley.
Both Newsom and DeSantis are among the top names being floated as potential 2024 contenders in their respective parties, particularly if President Biden and former President Trump choose to sit out in the next presidential cycle.
Last week, Newsom pledged $100,000 to the campaign of DeSantis’ Democratic opponent, Rep. Charlie Crist, who previously served as Florida’s governor, Fox News reports.
