Deveron Gibbons fishes for checks in Orlando

March

ST. PETERSBURG -- City limits mean little when it comes to Deveron Gibbons' race to collect campaign checks.

The Amscot Financial executive has been meeting with business and community leaders across the state to rally support for his mayoral bid.

He drew a diverse crowd to a fundraiser in Orlando on Wednesday, though it is unclear how much he raised. Campaign finance reports are due in April.

Meanwhile, Gibbons has also been reaching out to actual potential voters. You know, people who live here.

Campaign manager Nick Hansen said a campaign barbecue Saturday in Midtown drew 300 people.
