Charlie Crist added another $5,500 in campaign contributions Wednesday.

Among the contributions was a $1,000 check from the political committee, Friends of Rose DeLauro. DeLauro has been representing Connecticut’s third district in the U.S. House of Representatives for over two decades.

Crist also received a $1,000 contribution from Democrats Reshaping America (Dreampac), a Democratic super PAC, and a $1,000 contribution from Lisa DeBartolo, who oversees the DeBartolo Family Foundation as its executive director. She is also executive vice president of DeBartolo Holdings. She’s perhaps best known for being the daughter of former San Francisco 49ers owner Eddie DeBartolo and cousin to Jed York, the current Niners CEO.

Crist is running in Florida’s 13th Congressional District against incumbent Republican U.S. Rep. David Jolly.

Through Oct. 19, Jolly had brought in about $1.9 million and had about $160,000 of that money on hand, while Crist had raised over $1.5 million through Oct. 19 and had about $169,000 in his campaign account.
