Democratic Governors Association gives another $500K to Charlie Crist

in Uncategorized by

Charlie Crist’s political committee received another hefty check of $500,000 from the Democratic Governors Association. DGA donations to the former Republican governor now total $1.5 million.

DGA also gave $1.1 million in total to the Florida Democratic Party, as well as $963,000 to the grassroots political Florida for All.

This now makes the DGA’s Florida investment $3.6 million, spent to either boost Crist or oppose Rick Scott, known as one of the more vulnerable Republican governors in November.

Most polls are showing the race is somewhat tied, with some giving Scott a slight edge.

Although DGA money is certainly substantial, checks cut from the Republican Governors Association have been even larger.

During the current election cycle, Scott’s political committee “Let’s Get to Work” received $6.5 million to date from the RGA, with another $2.25 million going to the Republican Party of Florida.
