Former Florida Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink raised $1.3 million in the last month and a half for the highly competitive March 11 special in Florida’s 13th District.
The Democrat’s whopping fundraising total from Jan. 1 to Feb. 19 doubled that of her Republican opponent, lobbyist David Jolly, who brought in $639,000. Both reports were stocked with donations from members of Congress hoping to add to their respective parties’ ranks ahead of the midterms.
Sink, who has raised more than $2.5 million overall for the race, had $972,000 in cash on hand for the remainder of the campaign, while Jolly was left with $182,000. Pre-special-election fundraising reports were due to the Federal Election Commission on Thursday.
Outside groups have funneled millions of dollars into the race, which is being held to succeed the late Rep. C.W. Bill Young, who died in October.
The National Republican Congressional Committee and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee have each spent more than $1 million seeking to boost their respective candidate into the seat. Other groups such as the Chamber of Commerce, the National Rifle Association, House Majority PAC and others have also spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on advertising in the race.
