Florida Ag. Commish candidate crossing the line with fundraising?

I’ll be the first to confess I’m neither a lawyer nor a legal expert but I was surprised to hear the recording that was posted on YouTube of what appears to be Florida State Senator Carey Baker shaking down somebody for campaign contributions.  The phone number is a 352 area code, sounds like Baker, and references committee chairmanship:

Any lawyers out there who can weigh in?  Seems like he’s getting close to holding his power out for fundraising purposes.
