House District 14 Democrat Kim Daniels looked to have her best month of campaign fundraising yet in April.

A $20,000 month of contributions was the biggest one month haul in the HD 14 race for any candidate.

But things weren’t as they seemed in Daniels’ campaign account.

Daniels had just one contribution: a $20,000 check written to herself. A check that most candidates would have classified as a loan.

Daniels, who faces a Florida Elections Commission hearing for financial irregularities in her failed 2015 reelection campaign for the Jacksonville City Council, clearly has not refined the finer points of campaign bookkeeping since her loss to Anna Brosche.

Daniels, with the $20,000 check, now has around $35,000 on hand, good for second place in the money race in the safely Democratic Jacksonville district.


Terry Fields, a former state legislator from HD 14, raised $5,025 in April, with the most meaningful donation being $500 from J.B. Coxwell.

All told, Fields has raised just over $31,000, with just under $25,000 on hand.


Leslie Jean-Bart is still ahead of both Fields and Daniels through April.

$5,950 of new money in April bring Jean-Bart’s total raised up to $64,461. Combined with a $1,000 loan, Jean-Bart has just over $42,000 on hand.

All but $650 of Jean-Bart’s April money came from the legal community.

The biggest name contributor for Jean-Bart in April: Isaiah Rumlin, president of the Jacksonville NAACP.
