Gearing up for 2012. South Florida lawmakers -- but for a few -- sitting on big bucks

Lawmakers had to turn in their end-of-year campaign finance reports by midnight Monday. And most of those who didn't have competitive races in 2010 look in good shape for 2012.

But the two Republicans whom Democrats are already targeting with radio ads and robo calls finished the year with little left over: David Rivera reported just $10,986 cash on hand as of Dec. 31; Allen West reported $52,458.

Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen led the crowd with $838,866; Debbie Wasserman Schultz followed at $420,913. Mario Diaz-Balart had $215,085; Frederica Wilson had $110,736 and Alcee Hastings had $161,204.
