$31K May haul for Travis Hutson for SD 7 re-election bid

In a torpid May in Northeast Florida fundraising, District 7 Sen. Travis Hutson is the exception to the rule, with his strongest month in over a year.

Hutson, whose district encompasses Flagler, St. Johns, Putnam and northern Volusia counties, brought in $31,750 in May.

Hutson, running unopposed in the Republican primary, has raised $93,225 in total and retains over $62,000 cash on hand.

Most of Hutson’s impressive May haul hailed from a May 17 fundraiser at the offices of The Fiorentino Group in Jacksonville, where Hutson collected $25,550, including donations from Gary ChartrandJ.B. CoxwellThe Jacksonville Kennel ClubDuke Energy PAC, and other deep-pocketed players who back winners.

Beyond the May 24 fundraiser, some interesting donations came from Mr. and Mrs. Hans Tanzler III, each giving $500 on May 31.

Tanzler was endorsed by Hutson in his race for the Republican nomination in the 4th Congressional District in May.

While Hutson faces no primary opponent, there is a Democrat running in SD 7 — Curtis Ceballos, currently the sole Democrat in the race.

Ceballos raised $50 in May, and has $55.03 cash on hand.
