Charlie Crist’s first fundraiser tonight raised in the “half-million range,” estimated former state Sen. Steve Geller, one of the organizers.
That includes hard and soft money and some donors who showed up and said that they had already paid by credit card. (The actual amount won’t be publicly available until campaign finance reports are posted.)
The event was held at lawyer Mitchell Berger’s Fort Lauderdale home. Geller estimated that 75 to 100 people attended.
