Jacksonville Republicans LeAnna Cumber, Randy White build nest eggs in City Council bids

LeAnna Cumber

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.
