The report shows nearly $8 million was raised in other contributions since Scott entered the race in April. That doesn’t include $3.2 million raised by Rick Scott Victory Fund, a political committee aligned with Scott.
The campaign has spent about $18 million, much of it on television ads criticizing Nelson.
Scott spent about $73 million of his family’s money to win the 2010 governor’s race and about another $13 million on his re-election.MORE NEWS: Florida Man Accused Of Fatally Shooting Neighbor In Dispute Over 'Wandering Cat'
