Staff turmoil notwithstanding, Adam Putnam campaign is off to strong start
Republican gubernatorial candidate Adam Putnam's 10-day bus tour/campaign kick off may have been partly overshadowed by a sudden campaign shakeup that saw his campaign manager exit, but the campaign still has valid reasons to tout a strong start to the formal campaign.
From a Putnam release on his first month:
Adam Putnam has collected more than $2.1 million in the first month since he filed to run for Governor of Florida, with more than $1.1 million in hard dollar contributions to the Adam Putnam for Governor campaign. The contributions to the campaign came from 2,203 supporters representing all 67 counties in Florida. More than 1,714 supporters contributed under $500.
