Philip Levine plows another $5.21 million into gubernatorial campaign

Preparing for a final push in the Democratic gubernatorial primary, former Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine is putting another $5.21 million of his own cash into the campaign, according to a newly filed finance report.

Levine, a wealthy businessman, loaned the money to his campaign between Aug. 4 and Aug. 10, bringing to $18.8 million the total amount he has funneled to the campaign.

Levine last year also contributed $2.8 million to his political committee, known as All About Florida, according to finance records.

Levine is battling four other candidates in the Aug. 28 gubernatorial primary — Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, former Congresswoman Gwen Graham and businessmen Jeff Greene and Chris King.

As of Aug. 10, meanwhile, Greene had put $29.45 million of his money into the campaign.
