Brown leads District 2 campaign contributions

Posted on February 13, 2018 by Staff reports

Tammy Jo Brown, one of three challengers for the Santa Rosa County Commission District 2 election, is currently leading the campaign money race with $3,650, according to the latest reports submitted to Santa Rosa County Supervisor of Elections Tappie Villane.

Incumbent Bob Cole, who has served as the District 2 Commissioner since 2002, has raised $1,500 since pre-filing for re-election December 13. He’s facing two fellow Republicans, Brown and East Milton resident Wallis Mahute. 

Mahute unsuccessfully opposed Cole during the 2014 election. So far she has raised $692.

The winner of the August 28 Republican primary will face NPA candidate Kris Long in the November 6 general election.

Long has raised $1,725 and has not made any self loans to his campaign.
