Large donations continue to trickle into North Florida congressional candidates in advance of next Tuesday’s primary elections.
On Sunday, Matt Gaetz reported $10,000 — two contributions of $5,000 each — from the Majority Committee Political Action Committee (PAC).
That PAC is affiliated with U.S. House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, a Republican from Bakersfield, California.
Gaetz, a Republican state representative from Fort Walton Beach, is running for the 1st Congressional District.
Campaigns now are bound by federal law to report contributions of $1,000 or more within 48 hours if received in the window of 20 days-2 days before the Aug. 30 primary election.
Campaign finance reports also show that Neal Dunn, GOP candidate for the 2nd Congressional District, injected his campaign with $50,000 of his own money. That money was reported Saturday.
His fellow Republican competitor for the seat, Mary Thomas, reported Monday $2,700 from entrepreneur Dan Schwinn.
He is president and CEO of Massachusetts-headquartered Avidyne Corp., an aviation electronics company. It has a factory and repair center in Melbourne.
