U.S. Republican Senate candidate George LeMieux on Friday announced his campaign raised $388,505 for the quarter ending Dec. 31. The campaign reports $1,742,978 raised to date and $1,129,957 cash on hand as of Dec. 31. Last week, U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson announced his campaign raised about $1.4 million during the final three months of the year. The Democratic incumbent now has about $8.4 million on hand. Nelson, seeking a third term, awaits the winner of a crowded Republican primary in which the candidate drawing the most attention is U.S. Rep. Connie Mack, who raised more than $750,000 in the quarter and has just under $1 million in the bank. “With over a million dollars on hand and many months left to raise money, the campaign will go into the primary well-funded and able to successfully communicate with the voters of Florida,” said LeMieux campaign manager Brian Seitchik.
