Frankel tops $300,000 in contributions during first quarter

by George Bennett | April 12th, 2013

Freshman U.S. Rep. Lois Frankel, D-West Palm Beach, snagged more than $300,000 in contributions during the first quarter of 2013, her campaign announced this afternoon.

Frankel total receipts topped $385,000 for the quarter because of a refund credited to her campaign from the 2012 cycle, according to a statement from the Frankel campaign. She begins her 2014 re-election bid in Palm Beach-Broward District 22 with more than $330,000 in cash on hand.

Federal Election Commission reports are due by the end of Monday for the quarter that ended March 31.

In a statement released by her campaign, Frankel said: “I am honored that South Floridians showed such strong support as I begin building resources for the 2014 campaign. I am working tirelessly every day to solve problems in a bipartisan manner. We must get people back to work and reduce our deficit in a fair way that allows us to strengthen our economy, protect Medicare and Social Security and invest in infrastructure, innovation and education.”

  1. Help the Poor Says:

    The five-year Obama-nomics “trickle-up poverty” plan, supported by Lois, has claimed nearly 50 million Americas, according to the U.S. Census. A moral politician would donate the $300,000 in campaign contributions to local United Way programs designed to fight poverty. Just a thought…

  2. Carrie Says:

    So what can the Republicans offer the poor? Another version of the same Christian Dominionist nonsense they used on the middle class? “Believe in Jeebus and you’ll have your reward in Heaven. No need for you to have food or shelter now.”

    They certainly don’t want to extend welfare benefits. Job training doesn’t mean anything if there are no American jobs. Their Big Bank buddies aren’t going to loan out their foreclosed homes to people who can’t afford them. All they can do is offer a pile of homilies, sermons and pie-in-the-sky homophobia sermons that even turns my stomach.
