Filing shows Hasner with more cash on hand than Frankel, contributions nearly evenby Andrew Abramson | October 16th, 2012
The third quarter filings were released today with Lois Frankel and Adam Hasner raising nearly the same amount of money in their congressional race and Hasner having more cash on hand.
Frankel raised more in the third quarter, which ran from July 26-Sept. 30.
The filing shows Hasner has raised a total of $2.86 million while Frankel had raised $2.83 million. Frankel outraised Hasner in the third quarter $566,875 to $422,456.
As of Sept. 30, Hasner still had $679,583 in his war chest while Frankel had $380,919. The filings also show that Frankel has yet to donate the $20,000 in contributions that she received from Digital Domain executives. Frankel said she would donate the money after The Palm Beach Post last month asked her about the donations.
“We still firmly believe we’ve got the best message and the best candidate and we have more cash on hand heading into the last three weeks of this campaign to effectively communicate our message,” said Brad Herold, Hasner’s campaign manager.
In an e-mail statement, Frankel spokesman Joshua Karp said, “We are excited about the grassroots support our campaign has received. This is a hard fought campaign. It takes the support of a lot of people to be able to communicate your message to voters in both Palm Beach and Broward counties during the last three weeks of the election. We are excited to bring our message of middle class values to the the entire district.”
