In the two-man race to take on Democrat incumbent Stephanie Murphy, first quarter fundraising reports are starting to flow in.
Scott Sturgill was the first candidate to submit his paperwork and State Representative Mike Miller is expected to post his numbers in the coming days.
Sturgill, who is the CEO of Durable Safety Products, raised $106,145.00 in total individual contributions. He also made a surprise $100,000 loan to his campaign for Florida’s 7th congressional district during the first quarter.
Mr. Sturgill has notable endorsements from Florida Lt. Governor Carlos Lopez-Cantera, Seminole County Tax Collector Joel Greenberg, Seminole County Sheriff Dennis Lemma, former Orange County Sheriff Kevin Beary.
“Inside the district, our team is growing everyday as we seek to end the career of Nancy Pelosi’s puppet Congresswoman. Our district will have a real voice again, not one that is funded primarily by outside liberal interests.”
Republicans desperately want the 7th district back, which was held by Congressman John Mica for 20+ years, before he was narrowly defeated by Democrat and Council on Foreign Relations member and military industrial complex puppet Stephanie Murphy.
Seminole County Tax Collector Joel Greenberg, one of the youngest elected constitutional officers in the Southeast, predicted good things for Sturgill’s campaign going forward.
“The campaign will continue to draw in donations from supporters as more people hear Scott’s message, ultimately though it will be the amount of voters, not dollars, that will put Scott in DC.”
