A Novice State Senate Candidate Raises $1-Million

Lauren Book

By Buddy Nevins, BrowardBeat.com, for SouthFloridaReporter.com, Oct 14, 2015 – There are more than one million reasons why Broward state Senate candidate Lauren Book is a shoe-in for election today.

That’s how much the personable daughter of one of the state’s top lobbyists has now raised for her novice campaign, which is roughly a month old.

Book’s campaign received $356,790 from 462 separate contributions during September. She raised another $40,000 for her Leadership for Broward, a political committee which now has a total of $705,450.

That totals just over $1,062 million, surely a record for a Broward race in record time.
