Rick Scott's team raises $2.7m in a month

The Rick Scott campaign-finance juggernaut keeps juggernauting.

All in all, in the past month, Scott's team says it has raised more than $2.7 million for his reelection. Flush with more than $45 million, the campaign more than a month ago began burning some of it on TV ads: at least $8 million in air time has been purchased since mid-March.

Democrat Charlie Crist and Nan Rich's numbers aren't out yet, but they'll certainly pale in comparison.

Here's how Team Scott says its money breaks down:

$1.4 million for the Republican Party of Florida

$1.05 million for Scott's reelection campaign.

$257,000 for Scott's political committee, Let's Get to Work.
