Business executive Jay Trumbull added another $5,225 in the reporting period of July 26-Aug. 1 for the congested Aug. 26 GOP primary in House District 6.
The Panama City Republican now brings his total to $188,945, and with a media spend of more than $34,400 for the week, has nearly $73,000 cash-on-hand.
Trumbull’s fundraising performance continues to outpace the other candidates in the race to replace term-limited Rep. Jimmy Patronis in the district covering southern Bay County, Panama City, Panama City Beach and Tyndall Air Force Base.
Among Trumbull’s GOP opponents — Tho Bishop, Melissa Hagan and Thelma Rohan – Bishop came in second for the weeklong reporting period with $1,725 in donations for a total of $12,725, leaving the candidate $2,550 on hand.
Former educator Rohan received $1,089 – and another $10,000 in loans — for just over $35,200 and $42,508 in her war chest. Hagan raised $1,505 for $64,046 total and $44,815 on hand.
The Democratic candidate in the District 6 race is Jamie Shepard, who raised $275 for a total of $10,089. Neither write-in candidate Jerry Wyche nor Green Party Henry Newman Lawrence III posted any donations.
