In the race for House District 68, Eric Lynn is transferring a rather
Citing a June 2014 memo from the Florida Division of Elections and a letter from his own attorney, Lynn will begin his primary challenge with far more than enough money to run a serious primary campaign against Diamond. Lynn tells FloridaPolitics he is immediately moving $250,000 to a state PC and intends to move another $250,000 once the federal decks are cleared (i.e. bills are paid, and all correspondence with the feds and others are concluded) putting him in a fairly strong financial position.
By our count, this would make Lynn the most heavily funded Democratic House candidate in Florida.
“We are prepared to spend every dollar we have raised and continue to raise,” Lynn told FloridaPolitics. “We will have more that enough money to communicate our message.”
Lynn also shared an excerpt of the letter from his attorney which states:
“You have asked if the funds raised in your federal congressional campaign account may be transferred to a state political committee … We are of the opinion that you may transfer the funds from your federal campaign account to a Florida political committee provided that you comply with federal and state law governing the notice and transfer procedure.”
In addition to the half-mil, Lynn clearly knows how to raise hard dollars and it can be assumed he will add some more heft to that already impressive figure.
