HD 14 money race a two person contest thus far

With four Jacksonville Democrats in the HD 14 race to succeed Mia Jones, a lot of variables are in play still.

However, as of the end of January, HD 14 so far looks like a two person money race between Leslie Jean-Bart and former State Representative Terry Fields.

Jean-Bart had the best fundraising month of the two; her $4,125 raised brought her total up to $32,411, with $21,986 spent.

Interesting donors include Clearwater accident attorney, James Magazine, and Latasha Fullwood, the wife of Representative Reggie Fullwood.

Fields, who had a strong December, tapered off in January. $2,500 of new money brings his total up over $15,000, with just over $1,000 spent, which gives him a slight cash on hand advantage.

$2,000 of that new money comes from an interesting source: a grand each from the Jacksonville Kennel Club and the Orange Park Kennel Club, two historically Republican donation arms.

Kim Daniels, the current reverend and former Jacksonville City Councilwoman, had yet to file fundraising numbers as of February 15. Daniels’ fundraising reports were always interesting during her two previous campaigns, and it appears the new campaign will continue her delightful penchant for unpredictable filings.

Meanwhile, a fourth candidate, Gracie McCastler, filed to run on February 11.

On the Republican side, Chris Whitfield‘s accounting was simple, as he raised no money, nor did he spend.
