Denise Grimsley just scored endorsements from countless Florida Sheriffs in her bid to replace Adam Putnam as the sunshine state’s next Agriculture Commissioner. In a press release sent out, the Grimsley campaign also highlighted that the month of April was strong in terms of fundraising. The campaign raised $189,485. This also includes $110,985 for the campaign’s account and $78,500 for the Saving Florida’s Heartland political committee.
Grimsley commented that she is “proud of our strong campaign efforts and am most grateful for all the support we have received while working to earn our Party’s nomination. We have traveled the state and met countless Floridians – we’ve visited folks on their farms and ranches and in their homes, at their businesses and at local community gatherings. Our positive vision and message continues to resonate with conservatives and I look forward to continuing to meet the good people of Florida and share the ways I plan to strengthen our state’s agriculture industry to ensure it thrives for generations to come.”
Andrea Jahna, Grimsley’s campaign manager, added that “These fundraising numbers prove that Floridians are hearing our message and agree with Denise’s ideas and beliefs. We are proud of our grassroots campaign and the generous support we are receiving throughout Florida, and we look forward to traveling the state and meeting voters from the Perdido River to the Florida Keys.”
