Al Lawson makes money pitch for CFO hopeful Jeremy Ring
Rep. Al Lawson.


U.S. Rep. Al Lawson doesn’t seem too worried about a pending primary challenge for his Jacksonville-to-Tallahassee North Florida district.

He lent his imprimatur to a fundraising pitch for CFO hopeful Jeremy Ring on Monday, a chaser to an endorsement he and other Florida Congressional Democrats offered last week.

“I had the great pleasure to serve with Jeremy in the Florida Senate. He was an effective leader who was able to get real results for his district and was well-respected on both sides of the aisle,” Lawson writes.

“Jeremy has extensive financial experience and will take his innovative ideas and mindset to Tallahassee. Electing Jeremy will be putting Florida in good hands,” Lawson adds.

Ring, the sole Democrat thus far filed, has nearly $200,000 cash on hand.

He most likely will face incumbent CFO Jimmy Patronis next November.

Patronis has yet to report hard money, having filed for election in November, but his Treasure Florida political action committee has nearly $650,000 on hand after a $431,000 October haul.
