President Donald Trump raised far more money in Florida than any other Democratic presidential candidate in the first quarter of the year, according to a report from Southwest Florida’s WINK News.
Per WINK News’ calculations, Trump raised $5.2 million in Florida in the first quarter of 2019. The next closest candidate was Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), who raised just $326,582. That’s 16 times as much as the next closest presidential candidate.
These numbers reflect only those donations in excess of $200. Contributions less than $200 are not required to be itemized by the Federal Elections Commission.
When Trump’s fundraising was broken down by state, Florida’s $5.2 million haul ranked third overall:
For Trump, only Texas ($5.7 million) and California ($5.3 million) have supplied more money than Florida to his reelection campaign endeavors, according to the Palm Beach Post. Florida is the ninth most lucrative state for Democrats.
Donors contributed just $1.1 million to Democratic candidates in the first quarter.
