Jason Fischer adds $25K for his HD 16 re-election bid

Jacksonville Republican Rep. Jason Fischer is currently unopposed for re-election to House District 16 but that didn’t stop him from adding another $25,000 last month to push his campaign past $100,000 mark in total fundraising.

Fischer, currently in his first term, raised $24,850 and spent $7,648 during November, bringing his to-date total to $113,902 raised with $80,217 cash on hand.

The former Duval County School Board member brought in $1,000 checks from lobby firms Becker & Poliakoff, Foley & Lardner, Ericks Consultants, The Rubin Group, as well as a pair from Ron Book – one through his firm and another from his personal account.

In all, Fischer added 18 contributions for the election max of $1,000, though one from the Florida Pharmacist Political Committee was refunded. Another 18 donors chipped in under the max, mostly at the $500 level.

Last month’s expenditures report shows a $6,000 payment to Gainesville-based Data Targeting Research for consulting work, with a handful of milage and meal reimbursements making up the rest of the outflow.

Fischer’s committee, Conservative Solutions for Jacksonville, also showed a net gain in November with $8,000 raised and $936 spent. Its donor list included Florida Blue with a $5,000 check, Teco Energy with a $2,000 contribution and AT&T at $1,000.

At month’s end the committee had $37,386 on hand, giving Fischer a combined total of $117,603 between his two accounts.

Rumors Fischer could face a primary challenger have ebbed in recent months, and with his current fundraising streak he looks good for re-election to the Republican-leaning district.
