Membership has its privileges, as Ron DeSantis courts small-dollar donors
Small-dollar donors have a big opportunity.

Team deSantis card
Small-dollar donors have a big opportunity.

Teamwork makes the dream work. And for Ron DeSantis supporters, there’s a card for that.

The DeSantis campaign is marketing an official “Team DeSantis” membership card. They’re sleekly designed, black and show anyone who asks that cardholders are on board with what the candidate calls the “Great American Comeback.”

DeSantis has a lot of deep-pocketed backers, but the membership card is targeting those of more modest means.

“By donating $47 or more today, you’re gaining access to our brand-new membership card and exclusive benefits we give only to our investor team,” the pitch claims.

Those exclusive benefits run the gamut and include “merch releases, discounts and promotions” only available to members.

Additionally, cardholders can participate in exclusive “tele-townhalls” with the candidate, as well as “exclusive meet-and-greet opportunities” with the Governor and First Lady Casey DeSantis.

Those seeking “VIP media alerts and first access to campaign updates” and “password-protected content” are also in luck, if they hold the card.

Additionally, members receive “personalized videos for you to share your membership status with your social network” along with a “premade Team DeSantis email signature and digital badge.”

    Rhonda offers donors a thin piece of plastic for $47 or more when the thing small donors really want is… drum roll please… a candidate.

    The Rhonda Campaign cannot deliver a candidate, so here ya go, have a piece of plastic. Thanks for your $47. Chump.

    He’s after the small dollar donors because all the Big Money donors cut him off. They’re not interested in betting on a losing horse, and his nonsensical feuds with Disney and the cruise ship industry have shown that he’s not good for business either.

    For gag gift purposes, I will wait till December when these cards are selling for $5 a box and then buy a box, give them out, and laugh and laugh and laugh and say “Remember Rhondaroid? Me Neither!”

    The secret’s out. Insiders are saying Rhonda’s plan is to have his Florida State Guard go around hassling people who can’t flash their Rhonda card as a signal to be left alone by Rhonda’s Special Polices.

    Thusly I will add to the NAACP’s travel advisory: Nobody should be in Florida at all unless they have their Approved By Rhonda card on them to show the Rhonda Police in order to avoid a beat down.

    For someone who wants to distance himself from Trump, he sure isn’t being unique in offering a membership card. It’s just his is in Black and Trump’s is in gold.

    Golly gee whizz – a genuine plastic membership card for only $47! Which genius laid off staff person thought of that?

    I read this morning that team Rhonda is attempting to make the governor “appear to be more likable.” Key word: appear.

    His little Florida motorcade of official vehicles in Tennessee – with self-inflicted rear-ending – is the perfect metaphor for the state of the campaign and the candidate. No wonder he wants to hide his all travel info.

    trump is still leading the pack with 81.8% grassroots donations, while the Desanti pull up the rear end at 17.3, with Viveck behind trump at 57.5….
    DeSantis cut 40 ppl and 2 senior aides…Who he hell hires 100 ppl when you haven”t even come close to winning? DeSantis is an incompetent oaf that will face the piper when he gets back to FL. Foreclosures have started the highest in he nation, insurance the highest, and inflation is 9% when the res of he county is 3%…
    How can you sell his guy, no one want him, bu he has so many MAGAs irate in FL, we are going to see big changes in FL. Cook’s said FL< is still purple because of DeSanis…hey do not give much hope to his legislature nex year. If DeSanis can' t win, neither can they!
