Gov. Rick Scott and his electioneering committee raised about $4.1 million in January, adding to his money advantage over Democratic challenger Charlie Crist and his committee, according to Monday’s Division of Elections reports.
Scott’s reporting shows his campaign account received $734,036 in donations, with his “Let’s Get to Work” committee collecting nearly $3.4 million.
For the first time in January, Scott raised money for his campaign account, but “Work” has been active since last year, raising about $22.9 million in 2013.
Former governor Crist raised $374,767 in “hard money” for his campaign account in January, while “Charlie Crist for Florida” raised $637,300. The campaign and the committee began fundraising in November. Donations for the two totals about $5 million through January, records show.
