Democrats Bob Buesing and Jason Pizzo raised tens of thousands of dollars in campaign contributions in February, as they try to win rematches this year for Florida Senate seats. Buesing, a Tampa lawyer, raised $63,616 last month for his bid to unseat Sen. Dana Young, R-Tampa, in Hillsborough County’s Senate District 18, according to a newly filed finance report. Buesing, who lost to Young in 2016, entered this year’s race in mid-January and had raised an overall total of $81,464 as of Feb. 28. Young could not raise money in February because lawmakers are barred from collecting contributions during the legislative session. But she had raised $271,194 for her campaign account as of the end of February. Meanwhile, in Miami-Dade County, Pizzo, an attorney, raised $50,169 in February for his Democratic primary challenge to Sen. Daphne Campbell, D-Miami, in Senate District 38. Pizzo, who lost a 2016 primary to Campbell, also loaned $25,000 to his campaign in January, finance reports show. Campbell had raised $77,784 as of Feb. 28. In North Florida, Gainesville Democrat Kayser Enneking raised $24,446 in February, bringing the overall total to $179,107 in her bid to unseat Sen. Keith Perry, R-Gainesville, in Senate District 8. Perry had raised $261,107 for his campaign account as of Feb. 28. District 8 includes Alachua, Putnam and part of Marion counties.
