Other contributions in the Pinellas County Commission District 4 race went to Macho Liberti ($200) and Carl Folkman ($300).
Things still aren’t looking good for District 2 County Commission incumbent Norm Roche. He trails his primary opponent, State Representative Ed Hooper, by more than $100,000 in total fundraising.
Roche’s $23,700 total includes $500 in contributions during the latest reporting period.
Hooper raised $3,000 that same period bringing his total to $134,355.
Whoever wins that Republican primary will face Pat Gerard. She raised $4,010 the last period, which brings her total contributions to $135,054.
District 6 Pinellas County Commissioner John Morroni brought in just under $4,000 bringing his total fundraising to $120,590. That’s a commanding lead over his only opponent, Tea Partier Tom Rask. Rask has brought in $8,975.03. That includes $600 from the most recent report period.
