Ray Rodrigues draws second Democratic foe

House Majority Leader Ray Rodrigues, an Estero Republican, faces a second Democratic opponent as he runs for a final term in the Florida House.

Fort Myers Democrat David Benjamin Bogner opened a campaign account Monday in Lee County’s House District 76, according to the state Division of Elections website. Bogner joined Fort Myers Democrat Neilson Cross Ayers, who opened an account last week.


Rodrigues, who was first elected to the House in 2012, had raised $150,710 for his re-election campaign as of April 30 and had about $44,000 in cash on hand, a newly filed finance report shows.

A Rodrigues-chaired political committee known as Free Markets for Florida had about $424,000 in cash on hand.
