The political committee of Republican gubernatorial candidate Adam Putnam posted more than $800,000 in contributions for the month of April, the state’s campaign finance website shows.

Florida Grown reported $809,156 in fundraising and $276,479 in expenditures for the month.

That brings the committee’s total take since its February 2015 formation to $11.3 million in contributions. It also spent nearly $3.1 million, records show, for a cash-on-hand amount of about $8.2 million.

Putnam, the sitting Agriculture Commissioner, announced his candidacy Wednesday in his home of Polk County.

August A. Busch of Anheuser-Busch fame gave $100,000 in April, as did the Florida Chamber of Commerce‘s political arm.
