One America News Founder Donates $20,000 to DeSantis Campaign

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis just received a hefty donation from none other than One America News Network owner Robert Herring.

Herring reportedly donated $20,000 to a political action committee backing DeSantis’s gubernatorial re-election. However, the donation raises special concerns considering DeSantis has been named an early favorite to be the Republican Party’s 2024 presidential nominee, possibly teeing up a battle against Donald Trump.

According to Mediaite, The Daily Beast’s Justin Baragona initially reported the donation, citing “election filings shared with Confider by the liberal American Bridge 21st Century PAC,” that went to Friends of Ron DeSantis PAC this month.

“The donation is especially notable considering OAN and Herring’s unyielding loyalty to [Donald] Trump and the many ways in which the former president has quietly stewed over the emergence of DeSantis as a wannabe heir to the MAGA throne,” noted The Daily Beast.

However, Herring defended his donation to the Florida Governor.

“It means that we support DeSantis as a vice President,” he told the Beast. “I believe that President Trump was the greatest President in My eighty years.”

Trump repeatedly praised OANN’s coverage of the 2020 presidential election and frequently pressed supporters to switch from Fox News to the more conservative network. While OANN experienced record-high viewership throughout the 2020 election the network has struggled to maintain its presence on cable.

  1. How sad!
    This is President Trump’s time. People want him back. Obviously.
    The good governor will have his day after the country belongs to the people again and the criminals dealt with.

  2. I am sure One America News wants to see Florida stay RED and that is why they are contributing yp his Governor Campaign. We need Donald Trump to run and win if we want to save this country from the dark demonic path that it is on! If Donald Trump decides to run, I am quite sure that Governor DeSantis will enthusiastically support Donald Trump. Florida being a key state in the electoral process must stay RED!

  3. HEY ROBERT HERRING OWNER OF ONE AMERICAN NEWS, ARE YOU LIKE THE DEMON-RATS TRYING TO SPLIT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. YOU NEED TO WITHDRAW YOUR DONATION AND GIVE YOUR FULL SUPPORT TO DONALD TRUMP . WHEN DONALD TRUMP IS FINISHED IN HIS SECEOND TERM, THEN IT IS TIME FOR DE SANTOS OR SOMEBODY ELSE THAT’S FULLY QUALIFIED FROM THE REPUBLICAN PARTY. I AM NOW HAVING SECEOND THOUGHTS ABOUT ONE AMERICAN NEWS TV. ALSO WHAT DO YOU THINK DONALD TRUMP AND ALL THE 70 MILLION PLUS FOLLOWERS THINK OF YOU AND YOU NEWS CHANNEL NOW.
    BOBBY ~!~

  4. I think another donation of at least $30-50,000. Could be donated to Trump and it would make it more peaceful and friendly. Just in case President Trump would want DeSantos for VP.

    • Hey Mimi, that’s a good idea. I so like what you said. I wonder if Robert Herring will go along with that suggestion that you just said. If so I will give KUDOS to him. Lets see what happens. If so this will restore my confidence back with One American News again and thousands of their followers.
      BOBBY ~!~

  5. If I read the article correctly, the 20K donation to DeSantis was for his Governors race, NOT Presidential race. We need to keep DeSantis as Governor of Florida to keep it red. Way to go OAN!
