Debbie Mucarsel-Powell outraises Carlos Curbelo by $750K during most recent reporting period

Democratic candidate Debbie Mucarsel-Powell has come out on top of Republican U.S. Rep. Carlos Curbelo in the latest fundraising period. That’s according to new reports filed with the Federal Election Commission.

As reported last week by Florida Politics, Mucarsel-Powell earned more than $1.62 million in the third quarter. Now, Curbelo’s filings show he pulled in just over $865,000. That’s a gap of more than $750,000 between the two candidates in Florida’s 26th Congressional District.

It’s not all grim news for Curbelo, though. The incumbent still holds a sizeable cash-on-hand advantage, with more than $1.5 million available in the closing weeks of the campaign. Mucarsel-Powell has less than $700,000 remaining.

The race is one of the closest in the country, according to election analysts who either see the race as a toss-up or give Curbelo a slight advantage.

Recent polling has bolstered that view, consistently showing the race between the two as incredibly tight.
