State Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam’s (R) campaign and committee raised “nearly $1.3 million banked in July” and reported $11.6 million on hand. His campaign “noted was the fact that more than 5,000 donors had chipped in since the campaign started, with about 4,000 of those being small-dollar donors, defined as giving $500 or less. … The campaign also touted a trip to Kennedy Space Center with Vice President Mike Pence and stops at fire houses and Republican barbecues last month.” (Florida Politics)

EMAIL RELEASE. Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum (D) “has released a series of emails” after a public records request. The 33 emails released “cover a range of things, from Mayor Gillum’s calendar and schedule to speaking engagements, meetings, and travels.” Gillum is also the target of a separate investigation from State Attorney Jack Campbell, who “is looking into allegations that” the mayor “used his city-issued email software for political gain.” (WTXL)
