John Thrasher Raises Campaign Cash in Tallahassee
He's running for a Jacksonville-area Senate seat, but former House Speaker John Thrasher was in the Tallahassee Wednesday night for a fundraiser at the home of lobbyist David Rancourt.
"I'm just looking to pick up some crumbs," Thrasher said, acknowledging that raising campaign cash for a lowly Senate seat can prove difficult.
Gov. Charlie Crist is running for U.S. Senate and Cabinet members Alex Sink and Bill McCollum are in the governor's race, to name just a few rivals for pocket change.
"It's good to have old friends," Thrasher said. "But I'm hoping for volume, as in money. Not numbers of people."
