In Democratic gubernatorial field of anemic fundraisers, newly announced candidate Philip Levine already is standing out. Here's what his campaign put out today:

Building momentum after Philip Levine's successful campaign launch for Governor last week, All About Florida is excited to announce it has brought in over $1 million in the month of October, leading the field of Democratic candidates with a total of $5.78 million.

"This month's numbers further confirm: Philip's message for Florida, and his track record for getting things done, are inspiring the level of support we need to take back Tallahassee next November. In the year ahead––as more Floridians learn about Philip and his progressive vision for our state––we believe voters will continue to provide us with the necessary resources to take our message to every corner of the state, from the Panhandle down to the Keys." said Christian Ulvert, Senior Advisor.
