Florida Agriculture Commissioner and Republican gubernatorial candidate Adam Putnam had another boffo fundraising month in March, snagging more than $2.2 million between his main campaign and his Florida Grown political committee, according to finance reports posted this week.
Putnam began April with more than $19.2 million in cash on hand — nearly three times as much as GOP primary foe Ron DeSantis and more than double the combined cash on hand of the entire four-candidate Democratic gubernatorial field.
Among Democrats, former U.S. Rep. Gwen Graham began April with nearly $4 million available between her campaign and a pro-Graham PAC. Former Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine is next with nearly $2.9 million.
Levine, who has put more than $5.5 million of his own money into the race, has spent the most of any candidate — more than $8.6 million.
