So much for Florida House Speaker Richard Corcoran's daunting fundraising prowess. After a mighty, multi-million dollar start to his opening a political committee to explore running for governor, Corcoran raised less than $500,000 to his Watchdog PAC in September and then less than $370,000 in October.
Republican front-runner Adam Putnam in October pulled in more than $600,000 to his committee, Florida Grown, and more than $1.1 million between his committee and his actual campaign account.
State Sen. Jack Latvala, another candidate for governor, raised about $235,000 in October.
