In the first campaign report since filing to run for mayor of Tallahassee, current Leon County Commissioner John Dailey brought in $91,171 in April. This includes $10,446 rolled over from his county commission campaign for district 3.
One of Dailey ‘s donors was gubernatorial candidate Gwen Graham. Ms. Graham donated the maximum allowed -$250. Dailey previously endorsed Graham in her campaign for governor.

Daniels is Mayor Andrew Gillum’s former chief of staff.
The Political Action Committee believed to be affiliated with Daniels, Progress Tallahassee, has reported 43 donations for a total $16,468 since it was opened in March. A review of donors shows that less than 50% of the donations, approximately $7,400, listed addresses in Tallahassee.
