Gwen Graham committee gets late cash infusion

Democratic gubernatorial candidate Gwen Graham’s political committee raised $3.3 million in the closing weeks of the primary campaign, with big chunks coming from Emily’s List, teachers’ unions and Graham’s father, former Gov. and U.S. Sen. Bob Graham, a new finance report shows.

The committee Gwen Graham for Florida raised the money from Aug. 11 through Thursday and spent nearly $3.37 million during the period.

The biggest chunk of money, $750,000, came last week from Emily’s List, which works nationally to elect Democratic women candidates who back abortion rights.

The committee also received $500,000 from Bob Graham; $400,000 from a National Education Association fund; $150,000 from the American Federation of Teachers; and $50,000 from the Florida Education Association.

Gwen Graham also contributed $250,000 to the committee, the report shows.

Graham is competing in Tuesday’s Democratic primary against Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, former Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine and businessman Jeff Greene and Chris King.
