Philip Levine, Andrew Gillum plan Jacksonville area fundraisers

Two major Democratic candidates for Governor plan Jacksonville area stops this week, as fundraising efforts continue for the August primary.

Philip Levine will hold a “cocktail party” event Thursday evening, with a nascent host committee including Mark FrischMatt Kane, and Ted Stein among others.

The event honoring the Miami Beach Mayor will be at the Beaches Museum in Jacksonville Beach, and will kick off at 6 p.m.

Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum will have his own Jacksonville area event as well, from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, March 17, 2018, at the home of Erica & Colin Connor in Ponte Vedra Beach.

A minimum $50 buy-in is requested to attend the Gillum affair.

Levine and Gillum have had different approaches to campaign finance in this campaign.

Levine has spent over $4.6 million of personal funds on his campaign.

Gillum, without recourse to that kind of personal wealth, has had slower fundraising than other major candidates, and has just under $800,000 cash on hand.
