Republican Carlos Curbelo, candidate for the nomination in Florida’s 26th Congressional district versus Democrat Joe Garcia, reported raising over $310,000 in the first quarter of 2014.

“I am pleased to announce a strong fundraising quarter as we continue to build momentum, and we are most grateful for the support of our contributors, over half of whom gave under $250, with over 90% of all those contributing living in the state of Florida. In addition, half of our contributions came from residents of Congressional District 26,” said Curbelo.

“We have strong support from our home district and from national conservative leaders such as Governor Jeb Bush and others. We are working every day to share our message of honest representation and ending the scandals and fraud that have plagued our district. We will fight against the irresponsible Garcia-Pelosi-Obama agenda that supports raising taxes by over 1.5 trillion dollars on Americans now, and continues to saddle younger generations with debt,” continued Curbelo.

Carlos Curbelo Congress has raised over $950,000 as of the end of March, and has approximately $800,000 cash on hand.
