Health-care industry professionals helped Republican Randy Glisson raise $27,365 between July 1 and Sept. 30 for the race to replace term-limited Rep. Bryan Nelson in House District 31.
Glisson, an Eustis chiropractor and clinic owner, raised a total of $69,290 for his campaign for the seat representing parts of Lake and Orange counties. Glisson also loaned his campaign $15,000, while spending $5,882, according to state Division of Elections records.
Five other Republicans and a Democrat have now entered the HD 31 race by opening campaign accounts, though updated campaign-finance reports from them are still pending.
The deadline for filing campaign financial information is Thursday, October 10.
