St. Pete mayoral candidate Pete Boland raked in $53,925 in his first fundraising report from June 1-June 18 between his campaign and associated political committee.
But, Darden Rice still leads the field in fundraising, so far raising $616,773 between her campaign and affiliated political committee.
Trailing Rice is Ken Welch, who has collected a total of $345,295 between his campaign and political committee. Late entrant Robert Blackmon’s campaign has brought in $47,180, and Wengay Newton has raised $24,784.
Candidates Michael Ingram, Marcile Powers and Torry Nelson each raised less than $500 this past reporting period.
