Florida Politics: James Reyes, Rosie Cordero-Stutz lead fundraising for Miami-Dade Sheriff in April-May period

Miami-Dade Chief of Public Safety James Reyes, a Democrat, and Assistant Miami-Dade Police Director Rosie Cordero-Stutz, a Republican, led their respective Primary races in the April-May fundraising period for the Miami-Dade Sheriff’s race.

Reyes topped the now-15-person field with more than $150,000 amassed between his campaign account and political committee, Miami-Dade Safe & Secure.

Cordero-Stutz was right behind him with $147,000 collected through her campaign directly and through her PC, Citizens for a Safer Community.

Both candidates drew a mixture of individual, business and political donations.

“I am deeply grateful for every person that has gotten involved and powered our campaign to this point,” Reyes said in a statement Tuesday. “Together, we’re working to build a Sheriff’s Office that earns community trust, fights public corruption, and — above all else — prioritizes the safety of our residents, seniors and families.”

Cordero-Stutz said she is grateful for the “growing support” that helped push her campaign to the front of the GOP fundraising line last period.

“As the community learns more about my record of service and extensive experience in the Miami-Dade Police Department,” she said, “they are trusting that I will work to make our county safer and protect all our residents.”
