Tampa City Council member Charlie Miranda cut his campaign a check for $40,000, enough to make him the best-funded candidate in the five-person race for District 6. After that, he raised just $9,360 through Feb. 3, from just 16 individuals or entities.
Miranda’s check means he’ll have the resources to secure another term on City Council. But it raises questions about whether support might be waning.
Four years ago, seeking a second consecutive term in District 2, Miranda raised nearly $95,000. He dipped into his own pocket then, too, but only with $25,000, meaning he raised nearly $70,000 from other sources.
