Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis made his second presidential fund-raising stop in the Valley on Thursday.
One day after taking part in the second Republican debate at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley spoke to supporters at Harris Construction headquarters in Fresno.

Organizers said the 12:30 p.m. luncheon was a sellout. Ticket prices ranged from $1,500 for a single person to $11,500 for a reserved table with six seats.
In June, DeSantis spoke to Republican insiders at a private event at Harris Ranch in Coalinga.
