Former Democratic gubernatorial candidate Jeff Greene is making good on his primary campaign promise to help Democrats get elected even if he lost the primary, which he did.

On Thursday a spokeswoman for Greene announced that this week he conributed $100,000 to a committee supporting Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum‘s gubernatorial campaign, $100,000 to a Democratic U.S. Senate get-out-the-vote effort in support of Sen. Bill Nelson‘s re-election campaign, and $25,000 to a committee supporting Nikki Fried‘s bid to be elected Florida Commissioner of Agriculture.

“I’ve always said: there is nothing more important to me than getting a Democrat in the Governor’s office and sending Rick Scott back to Naples once and for all,” Greene stated in a news release. “These next few days are the most pivotal in this election, and I am proud to do my part when it matters most. When we work together, and vote together, we win together. Let’s ‘Bring it Home.’”

The news release said that Greene previously made contributions to Gillum, Fried and the Florida Attorney General campaign of state Sen. Sean Shaw, as well as in seven state senate races around the state.
