Steve Southerland and Gwen Graham Raise Serious Cash in CD2
Money is flowing into North Florida where U.S. Rep. Steve Southerland, R-Fla., is battling Democrat Gwen Graham in one of the most closely watched congressional contests in the nation.
On Monday, Southerland announced his campaign had brought in $509,000 in the first quarter of 2014, raising their total to almost $1.5 million and having almost $1.2 million on-hand.
"Our record-breaking fundraising pace is a clear indication that the people of the 2nd District believe in our campaign and the North Florida values we're fighting for," said Southerland on Monday. "There could be no more humbling blessing than that. I look forward to continuing to build upon the friendships I've built with Republicans, Democrats, and independents in every corner and county of this district in the months and years ahead."
But Graham had a solid quarter herself, getting national attention from Roll Call for bringing in $485,000 at the start of 2014 and having $1.4 million on-hand.
