Uncle Luke Only Raises $250 at Campaign Fund-Raiser

Luther Campbell's first political fund-raiser only nets $250 for his mayoral campaign.

Uncle Luke’s mayoral bid is off to a rocky start.


Luther Campbell recently announced his intentions to run for Mayor of Miami. Unfortunately, he has already come up short at his first campaign fund-raiser. According to WPLG News 10 in Miami, Campbell raised a paltry $250 at an event in North Bay Village, Florida (the former 2 Live Crew member had hoped the event would bring in $5,000 to $10,000).


As a result, Campbell falls far behind the other mayoral candidates in terms of fund-raising. Speaking with WPLG, he says that in the end his campaign isn’t about his failed fund-raising goals. “It’s about jobs and getting new money into Miami.”


The Miami mayoral election takes place on May 4.
