Thompson raised $148,900 in FL in June

Not-quite-official presidential candidate Fred Thompson raised $148,900 in Florida, a tiny fraction of the $3.4 million he collected in June, according to a report filed today with the IRS.

The former Republican senator and actor made his Florida debut in July, but the report only covers donations through June 30.

One of his biggest Florida supporters is former House Speaker Johnnie Byrd, who gave Thompson the maximum $2,300 donation. So did his wife and two of his kids.
