$20K fundraising week for Travis Cummings in re-election bid

Despite running against Libertarian Ken Willey, who has raised just $2,331 during the whole campaign, Rep. Travis Cummings is taking no chances in his re-election bid.

The Orange Park Republican, representing House District 18, raised $20,175 of his total $252,575 bankroll between Oct. 15 and Oct. 21. Meanwhile, he has just under $100,000 of that on hand.

Cummings, an aggressive fundraiser, collected $8,000 from PACs, including three max donations from the regional HCA hospitals.

Big Pharma and healthcare companies likewise were active donors, with Pfizer and Gilead Sciences donating.

Insurance companies, such as Cigna and Heritage P&C, both maxed out also.

Cummings’ re-election is a safe bet; he is in a heavily GOP district, and no Democrat is on the ballot.
