Jason Fischer maintains cash advantage over Dick Kravitz in HD 16

SBMC Kravitz Fischer

In what has become an increasingly competitive primary in House District 16, Jason Fischer nonetheless holds the money lead over Dick Kravitz.

In the last week of July, Kravitz brought in $2,000 but spent close to $8,000, leaving him just over $71,000 on hand.

An interesting Kravitz donor: the First Coast Manufacturers’ Association, of which termed-out State Rep. Lake Ray is president.

Kravitz and Ray are both veterans of Jacksonville’s city council and have overlapping political careers in many respects.

Fun fact: they were both part of Mitt Romney‘s “area leadership” in his 2008 campaign for president, choosing Romney over eventual nominee John McCain.

Fischer had a quiet week of fundraising, bringing in $2,303. He has over $91,000 on hand in hard money.

Fischer’s political committee, “Conservative Solutions for Jacksonville,” spent $9,300 on advertising, and has just under $13,000 on hand.
