“Florida For All”  a grassroots political committee opposing the re-election of Gov. Rick Scott, took in more than $1.2 million from June 21 to June 27, according to the most recent filings with the state Division of Elections.

FFA, which calls itself “dedicated to protecting and promoting the interests of Florida’s seniors, children and middle-class families” raised $1,245,679 during the week-long reporting period.

The overall total now stands at $2,757,754, of which more than $2 million was raised in June alone.

Donors to FFA include $743,179 from the Democratic Governors Association Florida PAC and another $500,000 from Service Employees International Union IPEA, reports show.

According to the FFA website, the organization “believes progress in the fight for quality public schools, job creation, economic opportunity, and every Floridian’s right to participate in our democracy” will be achieved by “ending political corruption in Tallahassee that rigs the system on behalf of powerful interests.”
