Rep. Jason Fischer, a first-term Republican from Southside Jacksonville’s House District 16, had his best fundraising month of 2018 in July, as a general election challenge looms.
Fischer brought in $26,000 to his Conservative Solutions for Jacksonville political committee (bringing it to $60,000 cash on hand). And he added $11,500 to his campaign account (bringing it over $88,000 on hand).
Among committee donors: Summit Construction, Florida Blue, and JAX BIZ (the political action committee of the Chamber of Commerce).
Among campaign account donors: Disney and various subsidiaries; Comcast and NBC Universal; Nocatee Development Company; and “Building a Better Economy,” the Jax Chamber’s political action committee.
Fischer’s Democratic opponent, Ken Organes, brought in $8.228 in May, his second month in the race. Organes’ haul was from small donors, and included $3,000 of the candidate’s own money.
Organes has just over $16,000 on hand.
