Trump Rakes in 16x More Money from Florida Than Any Dem in Q1

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.
