In Crist v. Scott contest, fund-raising so far is no contest

by John Kennedy | December 2nd, 2013

A key money-raiser from Charlie Crist’s Republican days tipped his hat last week after a political committee backing Crist’s Democratic bid for governor topped $1.2 million in contributions in its first month.

“I think Charlie’s done very, very well in a short period of time,” Tallahassee lobbyist and Republican fundraiser Brian Ballard said of Crist.

“I think the realities are, though, that he is up against probably the best fundraiser in Florida history in Rick Scott,” Ballard added.

Indeed, while the Charlie Crist For Florida committee had an impressive November debut, the committee supporting Republican Gov. Scott’s re-election, called Let’s Get To Work, collected more than $5.8 million during the month.

Scott spent $73 million of his family’s money to get elected in 2010, but he’s been raising money from others this time around. The nearly $25 million that Let’s Get To Work has raised since Scott took office does not include any money from Scott or his wife’s trust fund, which were the main suppliers of his 2010 cash.

Scott’s November haul came from more than 400 contributors. The Crist committee had 45 donors in its first month.
