Sink ends campaign with $11.2M in hard cash
The last campaign finance reports before Election Day are trickling in. Here are the highlights:
Alex Sink ends the campaign having raised $11.2 million in hard cash and almost $6.1 million worth of in-kinds. On top of that is $6 million from the Democratic Governors Association and another bundle of cash donated through the party. (Reports from the two parties are due today but aren't out yet.) Rick Scott's report, which would show how much of his own wealth he's committed, is also not yet out. So far, he and his wife have put in $61 million.
For the Cabinet races, Republican CFO candidate Jeff Atwater has the biggest haul, $3.9 million. Adam Putnam, the GOP nominee for Agriculture Commissioner, has the next biggest with almost $3.1 million. Democratic AG candidate Dan Gelber is next with $2.5 million. Loranne Ausley raised $1.7 million and Scott Maddox raised $864,000. Pam Bondi's last report is not yet out, but she has pulled in $1.5 million so far.
