On Monday, a major Democratic Super PAC launched an opposition research hub that would be focused on opposing Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) by addressing many of his ideologies ahead of his potential 2024 presidential bid.

American Bridge 21st Century launched the “Ron Desantis Research Book,” which will be targeting DeSantis’ views on critical issues, including abortion access and rights, entitlement programs such as Social Security and Medicare, education, the war on ‘woke culture,’ the COVID-19 pandemic and the economy. This site is also going to include an array of information on DeSantis’ past stance on the 2020 presidential election and more specifically the claims made by former President Donald Trump regarding a stolen election.

The website information is not just going to be focused on DeSantis’ time as a governor, but rather it will also include information from his time serving as a federal prosecutor for the U.S. Attorney’s office in Florida.

American Bridge 21st Century President Pat Dennis in a recent statement noted that the Super PAC has spent the last year “compiling the most extensive and exhaustive public file on 2024 Republican presidential hopeful Ron DeSantis.”  As he notes the website is going to include all of the information that they gathered on DeSantis including information from the past decade which will be used to showcase why DeSantis is not a good choice for the presidential election.

This is not the first time that American bridge has launched such a project and database. In 2020, they launched a database that was focused on then-President Donald Trump.
