Top fundraisers in May for state House campaigns were a combination of newcomers and incumbent lawmakers, according to newly filed finance reports.

Rep. Tom Leek had the next-highest haul as he seeks re-election in Volusia County’s House District 25. Leek collected $62,325 for his campaign account in May, bringing the overall total to $149,464, the reports show.

Similarly, Rep. Margaret Good raised $54,977 for her re-election bid in Sarasota County’s House District 72, bringing the overall total to $137,688.

In South Florida, Miami Republican Jose Ramon Fernandez raised $50,300 for his campaign for an open seat in Miami-Dade County’s House District 115. That brought Fernandez’s overall contribution total to $105,900.

In another race for an open seat, North Fort Myers Republican Spencer Roach raised $41,762, bringing the overall total to $115,302 for his campaign in Lee County’s House District 79.

Also topping $40,000 last month was Rep. Danny Burgess, a Zephyrhills Republican running in Pasco County’s House District 38. Burgess raised $41,560, bringing his overall total to $160,751, the reports show. The totals only reflect amounts raised for campaign accounts and do not include money raised for political committees or money loaned to campaigns.
