With a boost from the Democratic Governors Association, a political committee closely tied to Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum raised $3.3 million from Sept. 29 through Friday, according to a newly filed finance report.
Gillum’s Forward Florida committee received $1 million last week from the Democratic Governors Association, while other large contributions included $250,000 from former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg. The Gillum committee also funneled $4.2 million last week to the Florida Democratic Party and had about $3.2 million in remaining cash on hand as of Friday, according to the report posted on the state Division of Elections website.
Republican gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis’ political committee, Friends of Ron DeSantis, had not filed un updated finance report as of mid-day Tuesday. Political candidates and committees face a Friday deadline for filing such reports.
