During the first week of September, money poured into the Florida governor's race for the second week in a row.

Each major party candidate, Republican Ron DeSantis and Democrat Andrew Gillum, raised seven-figure sums in a race that's drawn national attention.

But unlike the first week of campaigning, when Gillum out-raised DeSantis eight to one, it was the former Republican congressman who raked in more cash from Sept. 1 through Sept. 7.

DeSantis raised over $1.4 million, with more than $1 million of that going to his political committee, Friends of Ron DeSantis. DeSantis' campaign account got just over $380,000.

Gillum got the bulk of his money from smaller donors, with his campaign account pulling in over $874,000. His political committee, Forward Florida, got just over $245,000, bringing Gillum's weekly total to just over $1.1 million.

Under state campaign finance law, there is no limit on contributions to political committees, but there are limits on how that money can be spent. Individual donors to campaign accounts can only give a maximum of $3,000, but campaigns have full control over how to spend that money.

Among DeSantis' biggest donors were billionaire Home Depot founder Marcus Bernard, who gave $250,000 to his political committee, and south Florida philanthropist Cherna Moskowitz, who also chipped $250,000.

Gillum got his largest donation, $200,000, from West Palm Beach attorney Chris Searcy.
