Jeremy Ring adds $168K in August for CFO campaign

Democratic CFO candidate Jeremy Ring will report a combined $168,822 raised last month between his campaign and committee accounts, his campaign finance director said Tuesday.

Shelby Rogers said the former state senator brought in $154,322 of the money through his campaign account and another $14,500 through his committee, “Florida Action Fund.”

“Our August fundraising numbers are further proof that Jeremy Ring’s message of bringing a more innovation-driven economy to Florida to create high-paying jobs has resonated with Floridians from the Panhandle to the Keys, and we are excited to continue sharing Jeremy’s vision for a stronger Florida economy,” Rogers said.

Ring finished July with about $130,000 between the two accounts; Rogers didn’t give any update on Ring’s on-hand totals.

According to his committee website, FAF has about $5,200 on hand, while his campaign’s August report hasn’t been filed.

James Pugh Jr. topped the committee donor roll with a $5,000 check, followed by the Jacksonville Association of Firefighters and the Florida Alliance for Better Government at $2,500, Alliance for Progressive Government at $2,000 and the Florida AFL-CIO and lobbyist Paul Wharton at $1,000 each.

Committee expenses came in at around $13,000 and included $5,500 to Johnson Campaigns and $3,000 to Renaissance Campaign Strategies for consulting work.

As of Sept. 5, Ring is still the only candidate running for CFO.

Potential GOP candidates include sitting CFO Jimmy Patronis and Brandon state Sen. Tom Lee.
