In November’s money race, Scott almost doubles Crist’s $3Mby John Kennedy | December 10th, 2013
Charlie Crist raised $3 million his first month as a candidate for governor, his campaign said Tuesday, the deadline for filing finance reports with the state’s Division of Elections.
Crist’s rival for the Democratic nomination, former Sen. Nan Rich of Weston, has already filed a report showing $31,230 collected for the month of November, bringing her total raised to $255,320, after being in the race more than a year-and-a-half.
Gov. Rick Scott, the Republican seeking re-election, pulled in almost $5.9 million in his Let’s Get to Work political committee in November. He’s raised almost $19.8 million this year. Scott on Tuesday also opened a conventional campaign account Tuesday for his re-election bid.
