Frankel scores big in quarterly fundraising

by Dara Kam | July 2nd, 2012

Former West Palm Beach Mayor Lois Frankel nailed down $400,000 in this second quarter of fundraising for her congressional race, her campaign announced today.

That brings Frankel’s total contributions to a whopping $2.2 million and making her one of the country’s top-performing fundraisers, according to a press release issued by her campaign.

It’s the fifth quarter in a row in which Frankel raked in more than $300,000. Frankel’s the financial frontrunner District 22 Democratic primary pitting her against Broward County Commissioner Kristin Jacobs. The official campaign finance reports aren’t due to federal elections officials until July 15.

Frankel entered the District 22 race last year in a challenge to incumbent U.S. Rep. Allen West. But after state legislators redrew the Palm Beach-Broward district with a pronounced Democratic tilt, West opted to run for a Palm Beach-Treasure Coast district instead. Jacobs jumped in, setting up an all-female, Democratic duel.

Frankel’s press release boasting about her quarterly figures ignores the primary altogether and instead focuses on Republican District 22 candidate Adam Hasner.

“Our campaign continues to build a grassroots campaign based upon the idea of focusing on getting our economy working again. Over the next 5 months, Lois’ campaign will have the resources necessary to her message out in
Broward and Palm Beach Counties,” the release reads.

Also today, Frankel announced the endorsement of fellow Palm Beach County politico U.S. Rep. Ted Deutch, D-Boca Raton, while Jacobs announced the support of the SEIU labor union.

    Jewish people before anyone else. This is what happens when the democrat party in PBC is run by Seigel, Aaronson, League of Woman Voters-Goodman. If any of their brethen want to run, THEY get the endorsement and money and others are squeezed out.

    Remember Kendrick Meek! PBC democrats endorsed the new billionaire carpetbagger from CA-Greene and then the white guy-Crist over Meek even though Meek won the democrat primary!

    Watch your back.

    Just curious what Ms. Frankel intends to do to getting our economy working again. Politicians have this inherent narcissism that makes them thinks that by doing something,(whatever politically motivated tripe they come up with) they will achieve what they want.
    Thus the fallacy with voting for a politician who makes promises that they have no ability to keep or perform on. Frankel’s time is over like so many old dogs. Just say no to incumbents or recycled politicians in 2012.
