Denise Grimsley Brings in $71,000 in May
Commissioner of Agriculture hopeful and state Sen. Denise Grimsley reeled in over $71,000 in total post-session.
According to a release sent Monday, May's fundraising numbers bring her total haul to $875,000 -- including $387,000 for her Agriculture Commissioner campaign and another $489,000 for her Saving Florida's Heartland political committee.
“I am honored by the support our campaign has received from Floridians all over the state,” said Grimsley. “We are working hard every day talking to voters about the vital importance of agriculture to our state’s economic health and the need for continued conservative leadership from our next Commissioner."
Grimsley called herself a "proven fighter" who could carry the Republican banner next November to hold the seat for the GOP.
"With over 600 donors and more joining our campaign every day, our message of supporting farmers and ranchers, defending our Second Amendment rights, and fighting to protect families and seniors is resonating with Floridians from the Panhandle to the Keys,” she said.
