Gov. Rick Scott suspended two Jacksonville City Council Democrats, Katrina Brown and Reggie Brown, June 1, after the federal government indicted the duo for a scheme to defraud the Small Business Administration. Since then, applications have poured in for the Governor’s perusal, and the latest list shows many veteran politicians with an urge to serve. Among the latest applicants […]

Up until now, the approach to campaign finance by Democrat Kim Daniels, running in heavily Democratic House District 14, has been unconventional. Throughout the primary period, Daniels contributed tens of thousands of dollars to her campaign, then refunded it, while eschewing meaningful fundraising. Daniels, a former Jacksonville City Councilwoman, found $10,500 of the establishment money that […]

Though the most famous Rummell in Jacksonville (Peter) did not give HD 14 Democrat Kim Daniels a donation (yet), three other Rummells lined up behind the former Jacksonville City Councilwoman, according to her latest campaign finance report. Lee Ann Rummell, Harry Rummell, and Mahala Rummell all gave Daniels, a well-known charismatic minister, $1,000 each on Oct. 11. Those donations were […]

The Democratic primary election in House District 14 revealed, again, that nominee Kim Daniels operates by a different set of political rules than more traditional candidates. The nationally-known evangelist fronted her campaign $65,000 during the primary period, then refunded almost $30,000 of it once she realized she wouldn’t need it for Aug. 30. Now, in a […]

Monday evening saw many of the candidates from Jacksonville House Districts 13 and 14 tangle at a forum downtown. From House District 13, incumbent Reggie Fullwood had fellow Dems Lee Brown and J.R. Gaillot to contend with, as well as Republicans Mark Griffin and Keith Walters. And from HD 14, a more truncated group: Democrats Gracie McCastler and Leslie Jean-Bart, along with […]

With the Aug. 30 Democratic primary in Jacksonville’s House District 14 approaching, Leslie Jean-Bart continues to lead the money race against Kim Daniels and Terry Fields. Jean-Bart brought in $7,500 of new money, mostly from the legal community, in May. The new money gives the trial lawyer $72,000 raised and $48,000 cash on hand. Terry Fields, a former state […]

The HD 14 campaign of Jacksonville Democrat Leslie Jean-Bart may have finally hit its fundraising stride in March, as the trial lawyer had her best month yet. Meanwhile, Reverend Kim Daniels, a former Jacksonville City Councilwoman, showed strength in her first month of serious fundraising. $19,650 of new money in March brought Jean-Bart’s total up to $58,511, leaving her […]

With four Jacksonville Democrats in the HD 14 race to succeed Mia Jones, a lot of variables are in play still. However, as of the end of January, HD 14 so far looks like a two person money race between Leslie Jean-Bart and former State Representative Terry Fields. Jean-Bart had the best fundraising month of the two; her […]

House District 14 will be decided in November. Chris Whitfield officially filed on Friday after announcing his entry at the GOP Debate Watch Party on Thursday. The Democratic side has two candidates, one being former HD 14 Rep. Terry Fields, who has already seen GOP money go his way in early fundraising. Fields is opposed […]
