Frankel tops $300,000 in contributions during first quarterby 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.”
