Kathleen Passidomo, Matt Hudson get a boost to their SD 28 campaign coffers

Kathleen PassidomoMATT HUDSONKathleen Passidomo may have raised more campaign cash in March than her opponent, but the Naples Republican’s war chest is still significantly smaller than Senate District 28 hopeful Matt Hudson.

State records show Passidomo raised $16,145 in March. Top donors during the one-month fundraising period included The Florida Justice Reform Committee and the Universal Insurance Managers. Both of those groups gave $1,000.

Hudson raised $175 in March, according to campaign finance reports.

Since opening his state Senate campaign account in January 2015, Hudson has raised $418,724.  Passidomo has raised $260,300 since opening her state Senate campaign account in November 2014.

It wasn’t just a slow fundraising month for Hudson’s campaign. Making the Right Call for Florida, his s political committee, reported it raised no money during the one-month fundraising period.

Still, the political committee has raised $823,526 and spent $194,561 since 2013. The political committee has more than 628,900 cash on hand.

Passidomo’s political committee, Working Together for Florida PAC, received just one donation in March. The political committee received a $50,000 donation from the Florida Hospital Association PC for Quality Health Care.

State records show Working Together for Florida PAC has raised $118,500 and spent $18,667 since 2014. It has more than $99,800 cash on hand.

Passidomo and Hudson are vying to replace Sen. Garrett Richter in the Florida Senate. Richter can’t run for re-election because of term limits. The Naples Republicans, who both currently serve in the Florida House, will face-off in the Aug. 30 election.
