Democratic Rep. Donna Shalala raised more than $800,000 in the third quarter. That’s a jump of more than 50% over her previous quarterly haul and marks one of her best fundraising quarters as a candidate for Florida’s 27th Congressional District.
“The strength and momentum of our campaign comes from thousands of supporters who believe in affordable and high-quality health care, ending this pandemic and getting our economy back on track, and combating climate change,” Shalala said in a written statement Monday.
“We are making progress, but our work is far from over as we continue to deliver results for the people of South Florida.”
In the equivalent period last cycle, Shalala raised around $925,000 in outside cash. Add in loans and transfers from authorized committees, and Shalala added more than $1 million during the 2018 third quarter.
Monday’s announced total of $800,000 for 2020’s third quarter — which covers July 1-Sept. 30 — only factors in outside cash. According to Shalala’s campaign, she added no loan money this time around.
Candidates face an Oct. 15 deadline to file those reports with the Federal Election Commission (FEC). Shalala’s team hasn’t yet filed their official report.
