Powered with more than $50,000 in firefighter donations last month, Democratic state Rep. Matt Willhite took the lead over his chief rival in the money race to represent District 6 on the Palm Beach County Commission.

Willhite now has an $11,000 advantage as he continued to haul in firefighter union donations.

After April donations and expenses, Willhite netted $36,396 while McGovern’s net gain was almost $14,000. In total cash, Willhite has $311,509 on hand compared to McGovern’s $300,581 cash on hand.
