McCollum down to $540k, public to come to rescue

Finance reports are coming in quickly now. Bill McCollum's is up, showing he raised just over $1 million in the latest quarter, but spent the bulk of his cash in the tough primary with Rick Scott. He's down to $540,000 in his campaign account.

But the public financing system will come to the rescue. His campaign expects to receive more than $2 million in matching funds today. (The actual amount is coming later this afternoon.)So he's not out of money just yet.
