House District 68 GOP candidate Bill Young II had a solid fundraising run from Oct. 4-10, adding another $24,300, for $175,864 so far in his effort to unseat incumbent Democrat Rep. Dwight Dudley.

Young, son of the late Republican U.S. Rep. C.W. Bill Young, also received nearly $11,000 of in-kind support from the Republican Party of Florida, for staffing and “in-voter contact.”

After spending $111,627 in expenditures to date, Young still has a commanding $64,236 cash-on-hand.

In the same reporting period, Dudley recorded $15,480, maintaining a slight fundraising lead over Young with $193,775. To date, he has total expenditures of more over $175K, and has a war chest of only $18,765 entering the last three weeks of the General Election.

District 68 covers much of eastern Pinellas County, Pinellas Park and St. Petersburg.
