Winner: Lauren Book. A recently released internal poll from the Book campaign shows her up 14 points over Democratic Primary challenger Barbara Sharief. Don’t believe the campaign’s numbers? Hard cash tells a similar story, with Book pulling in a personal record of $539,000 in donations last month.
Loser: Ben Sorensen. Sorensen, one of six Democrats vying to replace outgoing U.S. Rep. Ted Deutch, could be facing a Federal Election Commission fine for failing to report his second quarter fundraising numbers on time. In addition, Jared Moskowitz, the likely front-runner for the Democratic nomination, just nabbed another set of endorsements.
