Those groups, and other similar organizations, pitched in eight separate donations of $1,000. The Republican Party of Florida added $3,000. Most of the remainder was made up of housing and construction organizations.
Theobald hauled in just $3,300 during the same period, spending $2,630 of that. Theobald’s earnings during this period all appear to come from individual donors, ranging from $25 to one donation of $1,000.
Overall, Overdorf has brought in nearly 10 times as much as Theobald in outside donations, leading him $154,493 to $15,625.
But Overdorf has also racked up far more in expenditures thanks to a primary contest against Sasha Dadan. He’s burned through $134,627 while Theobald, who was unchallenged in the Democratic side, has spent just $6,203.
That leaves Overdorf with more than double Theobald’s cash-on-hand. Overdorf retains $22,715, while Theobald has $9,422 remaining.
