Congresswoman Lois Frankel’s campaign announced today she raised over $300,000 during the first quarter of the 2014 election cycle and collected a total of more than $385,000. The total receipts of $385,000 includes a refund credited to her campaign from the 2012 election.

Frankel is starting the 2014 campaign in a strong position, with a solid showing for the initial reporting period and having retired campaign debt from her 2012 victory. Frankel has over $330,000 cash on hand. The Federal Election Commission report for the first quarter of this year covers campaign contributions and expenditures for the period of Jan. 1-March 31, 2013.

“I am honored that South Floridians showed such strong support as I begin building resources for the 2014 campaign,” Frankel said. “I am working tirelessly every day to solve problems in a bipartisan manner. We must get people back to work and reduce our deficit in a fair way that allows us to strengthen our economy, protect Medicare and Social Security and invest in infrastructure, innovation and education.”
