With a shrinking Democratic field, Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried raised some $300,000 in May for her campaign for Governor.
Fried’s official campaign for Governor collected $194,862 in May, the bulk of that from individuals giving to her campaign. Five individuals gave her a maximum donation of $3,000, including Miami developer Jeffrey Berkowitz and his wife Yolanda Berkowitz. Another major donation came from California donor Susan Lord and Maryland attorney Paul Rosenthal also gave a maximum amount. Susan Robins of Miami gave $3,000 as well.
Fried’s political committee, Florida Consumers First, also raised $107,667 in May, with $43,750 of that coming from four sources. Other political committees provided much of that, including $12,500 from the Jason Blank-chaired Getting Things Done and South Florida Accountability Project committees. Royal American Development also donated $10,000 to the campaign, as did California donor Jane Benyo Petty.
Her campaign committee started June with $1,331,890 in cash on hand, while the committee had $2,587,467 in the bank.
