Last (and least) ... Tom Gallagher



Tom Gallagher was the last gubernatorial candidate to release campaign finance figures for July on Friday - and they don't look good.

He raised $45,740 in hard dollars for the month, far fewer than Charlie Crist ($335,000) Jim Davis ($195,000) and Rod Smith ($96,000).

But Gallagher did receive $1.3-million in matching funds, and he has $3.64-million on hand.

Said spokesman Albert Martinez: "This campaign is not longer about who raised what. This campaign is all about the issues. We've got the resources necessary to let voters know Tom Gallagher is the only conservative on the right side of the issues Republicans care about." Martinez said the campaign strategy has not changed, and Gallagher will continue to spread his message.
