Democratic Congressional candidate Eric Lynn maintains his cash-on-hand lead after entering the new year with more than $800,000 in his pocket, Lynn’s campaign announced Wednesday.
Lynn, who’s running for Florida’s 13th Congressional District, raised $240,000 in Q4, which ended Dec. 31.
“I am grateful for the continued support my campaign has received,” Lynn said in a statement. “This is a tough race — with the results impacting the health and security of our democracy — but it is clear that we have the support it will take to be successful in 2022.”
The update comes after a Global Strategy Group poll showed Lynn leads his Democratic opponents in name recognition and favorability.
Florida’s CD 13 race will be one of the most closely watched in the 2020 midterms. U.S. Rep. Charlie Crist is leaving a seat previously long held by Republicans that could help shift the balance of power in Washington if Democrats lose it.
