Gov. Rick Scott’s Let’s Get to Work political committee raised $485,100 during April, with United Health Group Inc. kicking in the largest single donation of $100,000.

Fundraising was down from March, when the PAC raised nearly $610,000. The committee has raised more than $56.8 million since 2014. Its best month thus far this year was January, when it raised nearly $1.7 million.

The committee collected $50,000 each from Meadowbrook Inc., a communications company; and the Florida Chamber of Commerce PAC.

Contributions of $25,000 came from Anheuser Busch; Intervest Construction Inc. of Daytona Beach; Jacksonville construction contractor Heath McCall; and Mary McCall, a “homemaker.”

The committee spent nearly $136,000, with the largest check, for $74,000, going to fundraising consultant Deborah Aleksander. It paid $5,000 to Tallahassee political consultant Josh Cooper.

Scott is precluded by term limits from running for a third term, but is widely considered to be weighing a run for U.S. Senate next year.
