Sen. Dave Aronberg, a Dem running for attorney general, last week had good reason to boast of his $260k fundraising numbers. Until now. Dem Sen. Dan Gelber reported a $325k haul. As we said before, this race comes down to money. Advantage: Gelber. For now.
On the R side: Lt. Gov. Jeff Kottkamp is doing ok with $270k. Haven't seen much from Holly Benson, former AHCA chief. No surprise. The it girl/person/woman in this race is Pam Bondi, Hillsborough prosecutor who has a good base to work from and some TV name ID as a cable news talking head. She and Gelber (former prosecutor) are the only ones in the major race to actually put a number of bad guys behind bars.
