Broward County Mayor Ken Keechl and County Commissioner Sue Gunzburger, running in separate races, have surpassed the $400,000 mark in fundraising though a good chunk of that for Gunzburger is a loan.
Keechl raised about $54,000 during the most recent quarter putting his total at about $403,000 with about $169,000 cash n hand. Gunzburger's finance report hasn't yet posted on www.browardsoe.org. but her son Ron Gunzburger emailed the figures which include for the most recent quarter a $100,000 loan and about $48,000 in donations putting her total at about $402,000. She has about $203,000 on hand.
When reports post for Keechl's key challenger -- former Broward GOP chairman Chip LaMarca -- and Gunzburger's Democratic rival Steve Geller we will update.
Miramar City Commissioner Barbara Sharief loaned her county commission campaign $95,200 and raised $2,775. No posted report yet from her chief Democratic rival Pembroke Pines City Commissioner Angelo Castillo.
The next reports are due Aug. 6 -- the same day Broward will start sending absentee ballots domestically.
