Fundraising quiet in Miami-Dade House race

With a special election little more than a month away in Miami-Dade County’s House District 116, fundraising has slowed for Republican candidate Daniel Perez and Democrat Gabriela Mayaudon.

Perez raised $18,435 for his campaign from July 21 through last week, while Mayaudon did not raise any money, according to newly filed reports with the state Division of Elections.

Perez had $5,137 on hand as of Friday, while Mayaudon had about $18, the reports show. Perez, who defeated Jose Mallea in a heavily contested GOP primary last month, had raised an overall total of $186,635 as of Friday.

Mayaudon had raised $1,950 and loaned $1,000 to the campaign. Gov. Rick Scott called the Sept. 26 special election after Miami Republican Jose Felix Diaz resigned from the House seat to run in a special election in Senate District 40.
