Audrey Gibson primary challenger Reggie Brown raises no February money

Jacksonville City Councilman Reggie Brown, who is primarying State Sen. Audrey Gibson on the grounds that she’s not bringing enough money back home, failed to impress in his first finance report in February.

Brown filed a waiver, a move that won’t resolve concerns about the uphill climb that he will have in challenging the Senate Minority Leader Designate.

With the Legislative Session poised to end in the coming days, one might have thought that Brown needed to make his mark in February, a month in which Gibson would not be able to fundraise.

However, that didn’t happen.

Gibson has $121,410 on hand, and reasonable expectations are that she will burnish that figure going forward.

  1. Reporting on campaign money raised is really a form of grabbing the low-hanging fruit. The underlying information is cheap and easy to collect; the editorial oo-ing and ahhh-ing come from a pre-existing script; and the reader is presumably impressed.

    In other words, this is not “journalism”. It does not inform. It titilates. Why not focus on the substance of the campaigns, like the challenger’s assertion that the incumbent is not bringing home the bacon ? On behalf of the Libertarian community, I will tell you that that is a dog-whistle that perks up our ears and makes us bare our teeth.
