$1-mil on hand for Jeff Atwater



This won't warm the heart of Bud Chiles, the maybe Democratic candidate for Chief Financial Officer. Republican Senate President Jeff Atwater says he raised more than $500,000 in the last quarter and has more than $1 million on hand.

 "I'm very pleased with the progress our statewide fundraising team has made in the past months, and we're looking forward to building on that success as the campaign kicks into high gear," said Atwater. "The message of accountability, transparency and serving as a watchdog for the taxpayers of Florida is resonating in every part of our state."
