Greer says RPOF raised $4 million this quarter



Republican Party of Florida Chairman Jim Greer in a message to supporters said the party had exceeded goals by raising more than $4 million for the quarter.

"This tremendously successful fundraising quarter clearly demonstrates that Republicans and Independents from all areas of Florida are rallying around the Republican message of less government, less taxes and more freedom while actively opposing President Obama’s radical approach to government’s role in our daily lives.  This financial support also reaffirms the unwavering support of Governor Charlie Crist, Attorney General Bill McCollum and myself in leading our Party to victory in 2010."

But the upbeat message raises questions about McCollum's own effort. Yesterday, his campaign announced that he and the RPOF raised $4.5 million combined. Does that mean McCollum raised a paltry $500k?
