Democratic gubernatorial candidate and Winter Park businessman Chris King announced Friday that his campaign raised $100,000 in November and has more than $1.6 million on hand.

The November money brings King’s total fundraising to $2.77 million and gives him the third-place spot among the Democratic candidates vying to replace term-limited Republican Gov. Rick Scott.

Former Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine announced last week that he had raised another $1 million in November, for a total of more than $7 million raised to date, while former congresswoman Gwen Graham surpassed the $4 million mark in October and has not yet announced her November numbers.

The fourth major Democrat in the race, Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, had $1.6 million in total fundraising at the end of October.

According to documents on his committee website King raised $45,250 last month through his committee, “Rise and Lead Florida.”

The largest donation to the committee came from one of the properties owned by King’s business, Serenity Towers on the St. Johns.

King’s campaign has not yet uploaded his November campaign finance report to the Florida Division of Elections, though through the end of October, King had raised $1.76 million through his campaign account and had about $1.15 million of that money on hand.
