in Uncategorized by

Chris Sprowls continues his blockbuster fundraising effort in the House District 65 race, with the announcement today of another $20,115 raised during the month of February.

Sprowls now has more than $132,000 in contributions, with over $100,000 cash on hand, in his bid to unseat incumbent Democrat Rep. Carl “Z” Zimmermann. House District 65 covers the cities of Tarpon Springs, Dunedin, Palm Harbor and East Lake.

“Everywhere I go, people are clamoring for Representatives who will go to Tallahassee to get things done, not just fill a chair,” Sprowls said in an announcement Thursday. “They want solutions driven leadership and an end to business as usual. They want consumers and middle class taxpayers – who have shouldered the burden of a sluggish economy – put first. They want issues like Flood Insurance, Obamacare failures, and job growth tackled head on.”

A graduate of Stetson University College of Law, Sprowls is currently a prosecutor for Florida’s Sixth Judicial Circuit, serving on the Gang Unit. His experience includes trying dozens of cases such as drug trafficking, crimes against children, and murder.

“I am very energized by the financial and grassroots support we’ve received,” Sprowls said. “This month’s report shows that is not slowing down- but it is even growing.”

“I am truly looking forward to November.”
