Stockton Reeves files reports on challenged campaign mailers

Republican House of Representatives candidate Stockton Reeves VI has filed new campaign finance reports showing expenses for campaign mailers that his primary opponent claimed he had not accounted for in the state House District 47 battle.

The filing, for Friday’s campaign finance reporting deadline, shows Reeves paying $66,952 to Strategic Image Management to cover consulting and mailers.

The report appears to negate the ethics complaint Republican candidate Mikaela Nix filed against Reeves earlier this week with the Florida Commission on Ethics, charging that Reeves was trying to hide expenses for at least 13 mailers that have gone out in the past couple of weeks, many of which attacked her directly.

Reeves maintained he did not get the invoices from the mailers until after the previous filing deadline, Aug. 10, and the expenses would show up in his next report. The filing Reeves sent in Friday shows the expenses being paid on Aug. 18.

The two are in a heated battle for Tuesday’s Republican primary nomination to run in HD 47. The winner takes on Democratic nominee Anna Eskamani.
