Gwen Graham highlights May donors for Tracie Davis HD 13 re-election bid

Gubernatorial candidate Gwen Graham was the biggest name among a list of 30 May contributors to the re-election campaign of Jacksonville Democrat Rep. Tracie Davis.

Graham’s $500 contribution was just part of the $8,165 haul for Davis, a first-term representative facing a primary challenge from a former aide of her Duval Delegation colleague, Rep. Kim Daniels.

Worth noting: Graham also gave money to another Jacksonville candidate, HD 15 Democrat Tracye Polson, in May.

Other May donors of note for Davis include Comcast, which gave $1,000, and Florida Blue CEO Darnell Smith.

Davis has raised $49,980 this cycle, with over $47,000 of that money on hand.

Davis’ primary opponent, Roshanda M. Jackson, continued to flounder in May fundraising, raising no money.

Jackson has just under $800 cash on hand.

Davis first won election in 2016, replacing Rep. Reggie Fullwood, who withdrew from his re-election campaign after pleading guilty to charges related to campaign finance irregularities.

The Davis/Jackson race is not the only primary contest Duval Democrats will mull regarding Tallahassee representation.

At least for now, State Sen. Audrey Gibson will face indicted and suspended Jacksonville City Councilman Reggie Brown on the August primary ballot.
