$2.4 Million in the Sink
Alex Sink waited to release her fundraising total for the second quarter until Friday afternoon. Not that she necessarily wouldn't want anyone talking about it. She pulled in about $1.28 million last quarter, bringing her total take to $2.4 million, with $2.1 million on hand.
The $1.28 million figure is quite similar to her fellow top-of-the-ticket democratic candidate, for Senate in this case, Kendrick Meek's $1.2 million. Though, the real comparison will be when Republican Gov candidate Bill McCollum releases his numbers.
Update: The Buzz says a source is claiming McCollum only raised about $1.05 million this quarter. Ouch. They point out that some of Sink's cash was rolled over from her CFO bid.
