From national advocacy groups to hedge fund managers to local real estate tycoons, lots of big donors have placed their bets in the race for Florida governor.
But not all of them are household names — in fact, several large contributors donated from their company accounts so their names did not initially appear on campaign finance documents.
The following is a Top 5 roundup for each of the candidates running for governor, except for Jeff Greene, a Democrat from Palm Beach, who has only recently joined the race and has not yet filed campaign finance documents. However, Greene, a billionaire real estate investor, said he would finance his own campaign and pledged on Wednesday that he would not take any outside donations over $100.
In total, about $80 million has already been raised.
