Monestime's War Chest Well-Preserved
Miami-Dade Commissioner Jean Monestime raised $77,000 for March at the beginning of his campaign run for commissioner. He ended up with the biggest war chest, $300,000. Monestime's opponent Dorrin Rolle only managed to raise $17,000 in the same month.
Rolle spent $14,232 of his, Monestime only $42,000 of $300,000. Four years prior Monestime and Rolle ran for a county seat. Rolle raised $400,000, Monestime raised less than $110,000. Monestime won. What is Monestime's secret to winning? Money is not necessarily a factor.
