On 3 Public Relations is out with a synopsis of the funds raised to date for Florida races. A few quick highlights:
- CFO Alex Sink (D) has raised over $1.1 million for her re-election race, which could be quickly switched to the Gubernatorial race if she should so desire.
- Charlie Crist (R) has raised not a single dollar for his re-election bid. (Don’t let that fool you, Charlie is a rather prolific fundraiser once he kicks it into gear—and makes up his mind in regards to which race he’s in.)
- Rep. Adam Putnam (R) leads in the fundraising for Secretary of Agriculture by a significant margin.
- There has been a stunning $388,520 raised already for the Senate seat that Jim King (R) will vacate. Aaron Bean still leads the pack with $220,441 raised, but Art Graham ($91,050) and Dan Quiggle ($77,029) aren’t far behind. Of course, John Thrasher has yet to raise any funds, leaving an observer to wonder just how expensive this North Florida Senate seat can get. (Funny that the economy doesn’t seem to be affecting political fundraising—at least in North Florida.)
