Benson's Q2 number: $150,000
Another fundraising total to report: Holly Benson, locked in a three-way GOP primary for attorney general raised $150,000 in the last quarter, her campaign said. That brings her up to $635,000 raised for the campaign.
Benson's $150k number does not include in-kind contributions. Yesterday, primary foe Pam Bondi said she raised $270,000 -- but that figure includes $70k in-kind from the Republican Party of Florida. So an apples-to-apples comparison would be that Bondi raised $200,000. The third candidate in the race, Jeff Kottkamp, has not yet released his fundraising total.
