Raises Nearly $400k in Fourth Quarter; Has Over $1.1 Million Cash on Hand
ORLANDO – Stephanie Murphy has raised over $1.4 million this election cycle for her re-election campaign, bringing in over $385,000 in the final quarter of 2019. Murphy begins 2020 in a strong financial position, with over $1.1 million cash on hand – nearly triple the cash on hand of her six Republican opponents combined.
Statement from Chip Harris, finance director for Stephanie Murphy for Congress:
“Stephanie Murphy’s commanding fundraising lead demonstrates her strength headed into November and that her focus on jobs, security, and opportunity is clearly resonating.
“While the Republicans in this race are in a mad dash to prove who will be the stronger rubber stamp for President Trump’s divisive agenda, Stephanie is working with both parties to rack up bipartisan victories, such as securing critical funding for gun violence research, passing sweeping reforms to lower prescription drug prices, and helping to pass the United States-Mexico-Canada free trade agreement.
“Washington may be distracted, but Stephanie Murphy is laser focused on putting people over politics and getting things done for central Florida.”
