Republican Rep. Brian Mast has added another $1.2 million for his reelection bid in Florida’s 18th Congressional District. That gives Mast more than $5.2 million raised overall this cycle.
Democratic candidate Pam Keith showed nearly $840,000 raised during the newest period, which covered activity from July 30-Sept. 30. She fell about $400,000 short of Mast’s haul during the same span.
Keith emerged to take on Mast after defeating Oz Vazquez in the Democratic primary. As of Sept. 30, she’s raised just $1.1 million overall. That puts her more than $4 million short of Mast.
She’s also facing a big deficit in available cash. Mast holds more than $1.7 million as of Sept. 30 for the campaign’s final stretch. Keith retains just over $106,000 as of that date.
More than one-third of Mast’s fundraising total this period — $430,000 — came via WinRed, the online fundraising platform for conservatives. Friends of Matt Gaetz, the campaign committee for Rep. Matt Gaetz, shipped $2,000 toward Mast’s bid.
