Attorney General Pam Bondi and her associated political committee have raised more than $3.9 million combined for her re-election effort, according to newly filed finance reports.

Bondi’s campaign added $74,965 from Oct. 4 to Oct. 10, for an overall total to $2,096,398. Her campaign also spent $102,096 in the weeklong period, for a total of $926,469 in expenditures as of Oct. 10. Much of the money spent went to advertising-related expenses.

At the same time, “Justice for All,” the Bondi-backed political committee, received $100,000 from the Republican Attorneys General Association. The committee raised $1,811,148 and spent $1,149,173 in total, with nearly all of the spending was last month from the $1.1 million given to the Republican Party of Florida, reports show.

Bondi fundraising clearly outpaces George Sheldon, her Democratic challenger, who took in $33,491 from Oct. 4-10. Sheldon raised a total of $720,122 overall, spending $671,352.
