Rick Scott Senate Campaign Raises a Record of More Than $10.7 Million in 2nd Quarter
NAPLES, Fla. – Governor Rick Scott announced today that his campaign for United States Senate has raised a record of more than $10.7 million in less than three months – a historic amount that surpasses any other national Senate campaign this cycle. National Finance Chairman Thomas O. Hicks and Florida Finance Chairwoman Darlene Jordan have helped lead the efforts to reach this tremendous milestone – the most ever raised in a quarter by a U.S. Senate candidate in Florida.
This historic more than $10.7 million fundraising quarter includes:
- Support from all of Florida’s 67 counties;
- More than 11,000 contributors;
- More than 75 percent of all contributors gave less than $500;
- 80 percent of all contributors are Florida residents; and
- Only 3.2 percent of all contributions are from Political Action Committees (PACs).
Governor Rick Scott said, “Florida families have had enough of career politicians in Washington who care more about their own jobs than the wellbeing of the families they serve. We’re on a mission to reform Washington so that it actually works for us, and I appreciate the support of everyone who has come together to help us reach this goal. By raising more than $10.7 million in less than three months, we are sending a message to Washington that the time of career politicians is over – and our momentum is not slowing down. I look forward to continuing to show Washington and the rest of the country what it means to get to work.”
Florida Finance Chairwoman Darlene Jordan said, “This historic more than $10.7 million fundraising quarter shows that the opportunity to elect Governor Rick Scott and send a career politician back home has Floridians more excited than ever before. No other Senate campaign has accomplished what Governor Scott’s has, and it would not be possible without the hard work of our many supporters. We will continue to fight together to keep this record accomplishment going strong.”
National Finance Chairman Thomas O. Hicks said, “Americans across the country have made it clear that they are ready to have a real leader in Washington, and every single dollar raised puts us one step closer to electing Governor Rick Scott to the U.S. Senate. We appreciate everyone who helped us reach this record-breaking fundraising quarter of more than $10.7 million and we look forward to continuing this unmatched success.”
The more than $10.7 million total does not include any candidate contributions.
