Quarterly fundraising reports for Florida’s U.S. Senate candidates were due to the Secretary of the Senate in Washington, D.C., at 11:59 p.m. yesterday.

The reports were not widely available immediately, but the campaigns have revealed their hauls to the media. Republican Marco Rubio reportedly led, with $4.5 million collected in the last three months. But independent Charlie Crist, who only raised $1.1 million, has the most money in the bank overall — $8.2 million.

Meanwhile, in the heated Democratic primary, billionaire self-funded candidate Jeff Greene raised a whopping $3,000, while spending $5.8 million. (As Salon.com asks, who gives money to a billionaire?) His opponent, U.S. Rep. Kendrick Meek, raised $1 million, and spent about $700,000, during the last three months. He has $4 million in the bank so far.
