Two Jacksonville Republicans, one effectively running unopposed and one actually running unopposed, continued to build their nest eggs in first-time City Council bids in May.
In District 5, LeAnna Cumber added $1,000 to her total off three May donations, as she vies to succeed termed-out Lori Boyer.
Cumber, connected to Mayor Lenny Curry, has raised $180,855 total and has over $173,000 on hand.
Cumber’s sole opponent, Democrat James Jacobs, hasn’t reported May fundraising yet. At the end of April, Jacobs had less than $500 on hand.
Randy White, running unopposed to succeed tax collector candidate Doyle Carter, added $2,400 in May.
The Westside Republican received six donations, including one from Duval County Clerk of Courts Ronnie Fussell, pushing him over $85,000 raised, with $84,000 on hand.
