Congressional candidate Ed Malin shows anemic fundraising so far

Ed Malin

Jacksonville Beach restaurant owner Ed Malin was one of many Republicans to get in the race in Florida’s 4th Congressional District after Ander Crenshaw decided to stand down for re-election.

Malin’s campaign account reflects a lack of traction from the donor class, at least through this week’s Federal Election Commission filing, which covers the period through June 30.

Malin has “raised” $20,700, though all but $200 of that comes from deposits he made into his campaign account.

One deposit, of $10,500, was on June 13. That was followed up with a $10,000 deposit a week later.

Malin thus far has spent over $18,500, including the $10,440 filing fee, $3,500 to Cox Media Group for a website, and $2,925 for commercial production.
