Broward County Commissioner Barbara charief added $ 185,000 to her campaign last quarter in her bid to succeed the late United States representative. Alcee hastings.
Sharief loaned $ 130,000 to his campaign to help increase that second quarter figure. She has now invested $ 230,000 of her own money as she competes in a crowded Democratic primary field for the nomination.
Mark Bogen, Sharief’s colleague on the Broward County Commission, donated $ 500 to his campaign in the second quarter. This is in addition to the $ 1,000 in donations that Bogen had previously given to Sharief’s offer. He argues Sharief against Broward County Commissioner Dale holness, who is also running in the special election of CD 20.
Sharief spent over $ 137,000 last quarter. This includes over $ 76,000 with the West Palm Beach-based Patriot Games company. Much of that money went to buying and producing ads. His campaign holds nearly $ 154,000 as of June 30.
Sharief represents District 8 on the county commission, although she is not allowed to stand for re-election due to term limits. Sharief won the District 8 seat in 2010. The county commission chose Sharief as mayor in 2013 and 2016. The county has a weak mayor structure, where this title is rotated among commission members. The county gives much of its authority to the county administrator.
CD 20 stretches from Broward to Palm Beach County. It encompasses many predominantly black areas near major cities such as Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach. County Commission District 8 overlaps slightly with the southern portion of CD 20.
In addition to Holness and Sharief, other elected officials such as State Sen. Pear Thurston and state officials. Police officer DuBose and Omari Robust are also looking for the CD 20 seat in the special election. Holness raised over $ 300,000 last quarter, while figures for the others are not yet available.

Dowling added about $ 40,000 last quarter, including a loan of $ 13,000. Taylor brought in $ 37,000 on a loan of $ 3,000. Fundraising reports for the remaining applicants have yet to be posted on the FEC website.
Vic DeGrammont, Lateresa Jones, Ervan Miller, Greg Musselwhite and Bernard Sansaricq also filed as Republicans in the special election contest. Mike ter Maat presents himself as a libertarian candidate, while Robert Ornélas and Leonard Serratore are listed as unaffiliated party candidates.
