Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine dumped another $66,000 of his own money into his political committee last month, according to a new campaign finance report filed with the Florida Division of Elections.
Levine, a Democrat, is considering a run for Florida governor, and has even publicly mused about running as an independent if he were to jump into the race.
Including his own money, Levine brought in $251,015 for “All About Florida” last month. The top outside contributor was Stamford, Connecticut-based TCC Air Services at $50,000, followed by New York City resident Bobby Hematian at $25,000.
Expenditures came in at just $38,000, including $8,000 to Matthew Van Name for campaign management, $6,000 to Edge Communications for consulting work, and $5,000 to Sayfie Media for event sponsorship.
Through the end of the month, the committee had raised a total of $4.77 million and had only spent about $116,000. Levine was the source of more than $2.6 million of that money.
If he entered the race for governor as a Democrat, he would be the best-funded candidate, followed by former Congresswoman Gwen Graham of Tallahassee.
Her most recent campaign finance numbers show her with about $1.7 million in the bank for her political committee, “Our Florida,” and another $577,000 on hand in her campaign account.
