New Group Fights Jeff Greene’s Money with Money

The Center for Responsive Politics reports that Rep. Kendrick Meek (D-Fla.) is getting some serious help in his Senate primary contest against billionaire Jeff Greene from a group called “Florida Is Not For Sale,” one of the seven new independent expenditure committees approved by the FEC last month. Reports filed with the FEC show that the group has already spent $245,470 on the race, with much of the money coming from donors who have previously maxed out their contribution limits to the campaign:

Because of the timing of the expenditures, the public won’t know who is funding these advertisements until after the election. But, according to a Center for Responsive Politics review of the group’s most recent campaign finance filings, the first $75,000 that the Florida Is Not For Sale committee raised came from prolific Democratic donors. All of them previously donated the legal maximum dollar amounts to Meek’s campaign in June 2009.

Now, a year later, they are giving 10 times as much to the Florida Is Not For Sale committee to help their preferred candidate win the race, with one using a corporate account to do so.

With Meek facing a billionaire candidate for an opponent, the numbers this group is putting up for him still feel like small change and not the stuff that’s likely to really tilt the election. That said, the tactics being used by donors who’ve maxed out their individual contributions and still want to do more point to how these new groups could play a potentially large role in a race where less total money is at stake.
