Kristen Carlson piles on cash for final sprint in CD 15
Lakeland Democrat Kristen Carlson added another $79,000 for her campaign to Florida’s 15th Congressional District from the Republican column in November.
A pair of 48-hour finance reports uploaded to the Federal Elections Commission this week show the Democratic nominee to replace U.S. Rep. Dennis Ross reeled in dozens of donations on Sunday and Monday. The first filing showed $8,200 in new money, while the second saw her campaign disclose a long list of contribs totaling $70,800.
The reports included more than a score of checks for $2,700, the maximum allowable individual contribution for congressional campaigns.
Spano posted a quartet of 48-hour reports for his campaign, though they combined to $23,500, or about a third of Carlson’s haul for the week so far.
The reports are the first filings since Carlson, a prosecutor and General Counsel for the Florida Department of Citrus, and Republican rival Ross Spano, a state Representative from Dover, posted their finance reports for the third quarter.
