Florida Politics: Daniella Levine Cava campaign reports $4M raised in Miami-Dade Mayor re-election bid

Miami-Dade Mayor Daniella Levine Cava’s campaign says it has now raised $4 million to keep her in the county’s most powerful elected office.

That includes $850,000 collected in the first quarter through her campaign account and political committee, Our Democracy.

Under Florida’s relatively new, laxer campaign finance reporting requirements, official fundraising numbers for Levine Cava and five people running to unseat her are due April 10.

In a statement, Levine Cava said she continues to be “deeply grateful for the overwhelming support” she has received.

“Together, we are working hard and delivering results — lowering costs, prioritizing public safety, and innovating for the future,” she said. “I know we can accomplish so much more with another four years of progress!”

Levine Cava’s campaign announced its fundraising on Monday, four days after the Miami Association of Realtors endorsed her for re-election.

She also enjoys support from a passel of labor unions and advocacy organizations25 of Miami-Dade’s 34 municipal mayors, and local community leaders like Luther “Uncle Luke” Campbell.

“With less than five months until Election Day, we are excited to have crossed this major milestone and to be building the infrastructure necessary to ensure victory in August,” said Levine Cava’s Campaign Manager, Kayla vanWieringen. “We are grateful for all the support and look forward to continuing our work of talking to voters in every corner of Miami-Dade.”
