With assist from Brad Parscale, Broward GOP touts more than $100K raised in 2Q

"This puts us in a great position to continue to turn out the Republican vote."

The Republican Party of Broward County has raised $104,000 in the second quarter of fundraising, thanks in part to a Lincoln Day Dinner featuring Donald Trump‘s 2020 campaign manager, Brad Parscale.

That’s according to a release from the Broward County GOP.

That Lincoln Day Dinner, held May 23 brought in more than 400 attendees as Parscale addressed the group just weeks before President Trump officially launched his 2020 reelection campaign.

“Mr. Parscale gave an amazing speech and the event also featured Republican Party of Florida Chairman Sen. Joe Gruters and Republican Party of Florida Vice-Chairman Commissioner Christian Ziegler,” said George Moraitis, Chairman of the Broward GOP.

The event on its own generated more than $55,000, after expenses.

Republicans aren’t likely to win many individual districts in Broward County in 2020, as the region leans heavily Democrat.

But with a sizable population, any progress Republicans can make turning out their supporters could help Trump hold onto the state after winning it in 2016.

“I want to thank Co-Chairs State Committeeman Richard DeNapoli and State Committeewoman Michele Merrell, as well as our many other volunteers, for their hard work on making this event a success,” Moraitis said of the Lincoln Day Dinner.

“This puts us in a great position to continue to turn out the Republican vote in Broward in 2020.”
