Sink raised almost twice as much as McCollum

Republican Bill McCollum's camp can't fudge the numbers anymore by adding in state party money. His fundraising report filed with the Florida Division of Elections shows he raised $852,917 between July and September. Democrat Alex Sink says she raised $1.6 million during the same time period.

McCollum also received about $326,000 in "in-kind" donations, mostly in the form of office rent, campaign staff, consulting and fundraising assistance provided by the Republican Party of Florida.

He spent $188,109 in the past three months, leaving him with $1.66 million in his campaign account. Sink says she has nearly $3.6 million in cash. So 13 months before Election Day, a Democratic, female candidate for governor has a nearly $2 million advantage over the Republican frontrunner. Or to look at it another way, Sink is outraising McCollum more than 2-1.

So Sink is recieving bribes at a 2 to 1 rate, that must qulify her to be Governor. Florida elected it's first undeclared gay Governor last election; maybe next election we'll be blessed with the "Sara Palin" of Florida?
