TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — For the third consecutive quarter of the year, Representative Gwen Graham announced she has raised over $500,000 — bringing her campaign total for 2016 to more than $1.5 million. Graham finished the quarter with $1.2 million cash on hand, an impressive war chest for a race more than a year away.
“It’s humbling to have so many people across North Florida — Democrats, Republicans and independents — rallying to support our campaign” Rep. Graham said. “Our continued fundraising success is evidence of more than just a strong campaign — it shows people really believe The North Florida Way is working.”
Graham led incumbent Democrats last quarter with the highest fundraising haul, and her strong third-quarter showing is expected to again place her in the top tier.
The campaign has received 11,000 online contributions with an average donation of $19.44 — showing an active and expanding grassroots base is continuing to support Graham’s positive message.
“Since joining Congress, we’ve introduced legislation to prevent government shutdowns, passed an initiative to protect Israel from tunnel attacks, and rallied the state’s delegation to save the Apalachicola Bay,” Rep. Graham said. “I wake up every day thinking about how I can best serve the people of North Florida, and I thank them for giving me that honor.”
