Some Pinellas campaign report numbers
Candidates filed campaign reports today for the fundraising period that ran from Aug. 22 to Sept. 12. We've got a run down of the money game in some Pinellas races below.
In the Property Appraiser's race, Republican Pam Dubov took in $5,875 in the period, bringing her cash on hand to $11,576. Her Democratic opponent Ben Friedlander raised $1,175. He had $5,358 on hand.
In the Supervisor of Elections contest, Republican incumbent Deb Clark brought in $200. She had $9,214 to spend. Democrat Jack Killingsworth raised nothing, but had $10,605 to spend.
In the District 1 County Commission race, Democrat Paul Matton took in $900, leaving him with $1,885 on hand. Republican Neil Brickfield mailed in his report, and it was not immediately available on the SOE Web-site.
In the District 3 County Commission race, Republican Nancy Bostock raised $3,834 and had $20,587 to spend. Democrat Rene Flowers took in $2,470. She had $2,472 on hand.
In the District 5 County Commission race, Republican incumbent Karen Seel raised $3,950 and had $55,299 to spend. Democrat Norm Roche raised $1,400. He had $2,411 on hand. NPA candidate Jake Mullens reported no activity, as he has for the last three reporting periods.
Those behind in the money race may take heart from one illustrative primary race: Rene Flowers beat Darden Rice despite being grossly outspent.
