Crist raises $2 million in May: $1.6 million in big checks, thousands in small sums

Democrat Charlie Crist announced Tuesday he and his political committee raised more than $2 million in the month of May, bringing the campaign total to $12.6 million, his campaign reported. 

The campaign continues to make a distinction between the big bucks earned by his rival, Republican Gov. Rick Scott, by noting that the average contribution to the Crist campaign for the month was $102.92 as 4,915 people sent checks of under $100.

Here's the breakdown: 

Scott, by contrast, raised less than $50,000 in his political committee but announced the party $3.4 million in May while his political campaign raised $1 million 

Crist's political committee received its biggest checks this month $200,000 - from Chicago media mogul Fred Eyechaner and another from the West Palm Beach-based trial lawyers Searcy, Denney, Scarola, Barnhart & Shipley. Most of Crist's other large contributions in May came from law firms.
