Jeff Greene plows $3M more into gubernatorial bid

Democratic gubernatorial candidate Jeff Greene has put another $3 million into his campaign, bringing the total to $13.6 million since Greene entered the race last month, according to a newly filed finance report.

Greene, a Palm Beach billionaire, loaned $3 million to the campaign on July 16.

The $13.6 million includes loans and contributions from Greene, who has almost totally self-funded his campaign.

During an interview this week with The News Service of Florida, Greene didn’t put a limit on how much he will spend as he competes with fellow Democrats Andrew Gillum, Gwen Graham, Chris King and Philip Levine in the Aug. 28 primary.

“As of now, I know that I’ve probably spent a little more than Gwen Graham, less than Philip Levine,” Greene said. “There are only five weeks left, I don’t have any idea what it will take.”

The News Service of Florida provides journalists, lobbyists, government officials and other civic leaders with comprehensive, objective information about the activities of state government year-round.
