Bill Galvano adds to his campaign fund-raising advantage

Bill Galvano continues to pad his war chest for his campaign for the Florida Senate -- and there still is not an opponent in sight.

Galvano, who is running to represent a district still taking shape during the Legislature's redistricting process, collected $42,945 in contributions during the final three months of year, bringing his total haul so far to more than $348,100, according to reports filed with the Florida Division of Elections.

Galvano, a Republican from Bradenton, has spent more than $136,700 on his campaign, meaning he ended 2011 with more than $211,000 in the bank.

The most recent reports, filed this month, cover the fourth quarter of 2011.

Galvano, a former member of the Florida House, is hoping to replace Sen. Mike Bennett as Bradenton's representative in the Florida Senate. However, the exact boundaries of his district -- and other legislative and congressional districts -- remain to be set by the Legislature. (Bennett cannot run again because of term limits.)

Galvano is currently listed as a candidate for Senate District 21. No one else has filed to run for the seat.
