Nan Rich's Fundraising Woes
Adam Smith of The Buzz reports on Nan Rich's fundraising numbers and the news is not good.
For all practical purposes, though, respected former state Sen. Rich barely passes the threshold of viability. To date, she has raised $224,000 for her statewide campaign, less than Rick Kriseman did for his campaign for mayor of St. Petersburg. In October, Rich raised nearly $8,300 and spent nearly $8,800. She has about $62,000 on hand, and tends to draw most attention when Florida GOP Chairman Lenny Curry is touting her candidacy.Smith throws out the possibility that the Florida Republican establishment would fund Rich in the primary to get a weaker general election opponent to run against Gov. Rick Scott. I haven't heard anything about this. In Smith's defense, he is probably just thinking out loud. However, Rich has her work cut out for her on the fundraising front.
