TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- With slightly less than a year to go before the election, Gov. Rick Scott and Democratic rival Charlie Crist are raising money at a rapid pace.

Crist officially jumped into the race in early November. Campaign records show that Crist raised nearly $3 million into both his official campaign account and for a political committee helping his campaign.

Scott, however, nearly doubled Crist's totals. Scott's committee called Let's Get to Work raised more than $5.8 million during the month of November. Scott opened his official campaign account earlier this week.

Scott is getting substantial financial help from many of the companies who either do business with the state or routinely seek legislative help.

Crist has gotten money from attorneys and well-established Democratic donors who helped out President Barack Obama.
