Tina Polsky finishes May with more than $60,000 cash on hand

Tina Polsky ended may with more than $62,000 cash on hand, maintaining the money lead over her primary opponent, Mindy Koch.

Polsky added just under $44,000 to her campaign in May. Of that total, $25,000 came in the form of a loan from Polsky, with the rest coming from outside contributions.

That leaves her far ahead of Koch, who is challenging Polsky for the Democratic nomination in House District 81. Koch declared just over $3,000 raised in May, bringing her total raised to about $10,000. Koch has less than $6,000 of that remaining.

The pair are running to replace retiring Rep. Joe Abruzzo. No Republicans have filed to run in the seat.

Polsky appears to be the favorite in the race. In addition to the large fundraising lead over Koch, Polsky also received a recent round of endorsements from politicians around Palm Beach County. She has also been endorsed by Abruzzo to be his successor.

HD 81 covers parts of Palm Beach County including Parkland and Belle Glade. Democrats have been unchallenged in the previous two elections for HD 81.

Primary voters will choose the district’s Democratic nominee on August 28.
