Republican candidate Chip LaMarca remains well ahead in fundraising in the race for House District 93.
LaMarca pulled in another $53,344 from Sept. 15 to 28, bringing his overall fundraising total to $418,245. He also spent $21,055 during the same period, most of which went toward consulting, advertising and campaign signs.
That leaves LaMarca with just over 331,000 on hand.
His Democratic opponent, Emma Collum, brought in just $9,071 from Sept. 15 to 28. The vast majority of those donations were individual contributions between $25 and $100. Collum’s campaign is now sitting on $51,443, less than 1/6 of LaMarca’s total.
But Collum also earned an ‘angel donation‘ of $200,000 back in June, which erases much of that deficit.
The latest numbers come from reports filed with the Florida Division of Elections.
Though Broward County typically leans Democratic, HD 93 has been an exception. Term-limited state Rep. George Moraitis, a Republican, won his 2016 race by about 8 percentage points.
