Dan Gelber's plan to win the netroots in the Senate primary wasn't really given much of a chance to work, but he does seem to be winning some early progressive blog buzz in the Democratic primary for attorney general. Unfortunately for him, he's trailing opponent Dave Aronberg in campaign cash. 

Gelber has collected $150,000, while Aronberg has amassed $173,000. 

It's not a huge lead by any measure, and it might be chalked up to the fact that Aronberg kicked off his campaign before Gelber got a chance to drop out of the Senate race and shift his attention to AG. It might also be because, as this Daily Kos diarists notes, Gelber doesn't know any rich former kick boxers with criminal records who sell sexual enhancements pills. 

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
