Putnam’s committee, “Florida Grown,” reports raking in an impressive $235,000 in the first five days of May. Before that, the committee reported having $8.2 million on hand.

Big donors include $100,000 from A. Duda & Sons, Inc., of Oviedo and another $500,000 dollars from committees backed by the phosphate industry.

Putnam faces potential primary challenges from House Speaker Richard Corcoran and Clearwater Senator Jack Latvala of Clearwater.
