There’s a new cash-on-hand leader in the race for House District 118.
Rodriguez earned a whopping $70,100 Sept. 15-28.
That was bolstered by an influx of $46,000 from the Republican Party of Florida, along with a series of $1,000 donations from various political committees.
Most of the money spent by Rodriguez was on phone banks, mailings and door-to-door canvassing.
In total, he spent $18,546 during the period. Rodriguez now has more than $110,000 on hand.
That surpasses Asencio’s $84,000 and change. Asencio earned just $15,901 during the latest reporting period. He spent even more than that—$16,316—mostly on advertising.
Asencio was recently joined on the campaign trail by U.S. Rep. Luis Gutierrez of Illinois.
HD 118 covers parts of Miami-Dade County including Tamiami and Kendall. Both Asencio and Rodriguez were unchallenged in their respective primaries.
