POLITICO: Democrat Governors Association holding off investing heavily in Democrats seeking to dethrone Ron DeSantis

Commotion — The Democratic Governors Association is not planning on making any major financial contributions to help Democrats try to unset the Republican incumbent and potential presidential contender.
Bad moon rising — There are several reasons for this, reports POLITICO’s Matt Dixon, including the need to protect Democratic incumbents in other states, but it adds to the foreboding that now hangs over the race and steepens the uphill battle for candidates Nikki Fried, Charlie Crist and Annette Taddeo. Earlier this week, we outlined many of the reasons DeSantis was already viewed as unbeatable even though the election is a year away.
Tombstone shadow — One big problem is that it costs a lot to advertise in Florida due to its 10 media markets. “I do think, and I can’t stress this enough, the DGA is playing mostly defense this year, and that’s a monumental change,” Jonathan Ducote, a veteran Democratic consultant who has worked with the DGA, told Matt. “When I think about Florida statewide elections, the number one thing you have to ask yourself is do you have the money to communicate in a really expensive state?”
