Menza menz: Sen. Jim Norman raises $18K but spends $16K during 1Q

in Uncategorized by

Despite a strong legislative session, during which he was credited for staving off disastrous budget cuts for the University of South Florida, state Senator Jim Norman posted a menza menz fundraising report for the first quarter, raising $18,700 to bring his overall total to $177,820. But he spent over $16K and has spent $73K to-date.

Norman faces a primary challenge from former Rep. Rob Wallace.

It’s a certainty that this race will be as influenced by third-party money as it is by what the candidates raise.
