For the first time since before records are available online, the Florida Democratic Party raised more than the Republican Party of Florida in the Second Quarter, according to newly released campaign finance reports by the Florida Division of Elections. 1996 is the earliest finance reports available online.
Florida Democrats raised $1,196,529.89 from 1,740 donations in the second fundraising quarter of 2009, confirming the momentum Florida Democrats have been building for change.
"As part of our commitment to building the grassroots movement to bring change to Florida in 2010, we are thrilled that over 1,700 Floridians contributed to the Florida Democratic Party over the past several months. The outpouring of support from grassroots donors once again shows that Democrats are organized and energized to elect proven leaders such as Alex Sink as our next Governor, as well as electing Democrats up and down the ticket," said Chair Karen Thurman.
