You can tell Pepe Diaz is a good soldier by his campaign report. He makes a lot of people and corporations happy, too bad hardly any of his contributors are regular people in his district...or voters.
An average Joe would give $100 or under to a campaign. In total he got about 27 donations $100 (or less) out of the 227 donations totaling $87,990. There were 5 $100 donations from lawyers out of his district. There was one from a consultant living on Old Cutler, an engineer from Ft. Lauderdale and another from a doctor in Coconut Grove (he got about 22 $100 donations). An Engineer in Ft. Lauderdale gave him $50 (he got 4 $50 donations total). Finally, he got one $35 donation from a woman in Hollywood.
Out of the 227 total donations I would estimate that no more than 20 came from regular voters within his district. I was quite generous with the 10 zip codes I searched, giving him the benefit of the doubt. I didn't count the Michael Adler or Shoma Homes multiple donations as they obviously are not 'regular' people who can vote in his district. Pepe had 20 donations from Coral Gables, 8 from Homestead and 10 from Miami Beach Beach. There were about 20 donations from Broward County (probably as many from Broward County as from his own district voters). Then there were the donations from out of State: Alabama (2), Colorado, Virginia and Los Angeles (5). Finally there were a bunch out of the South Florida area: Lutz, West Palm Beach (4), Palm Beach Gardens, St. Augustine, Jupiter, Lakeland, Tampa, Deerfield, Tallahassee, Port St. Lucie, Crystal River and Jacksonville. The majority of the donations were for $500 -- not exactly the amount of choice for us common folks. So exactly who is contributing to Pepe Diaz's campaign? Not voters from District 12, that is for certain.
