Democrat Sean Shaw took in $1,055 from June 21 to July 4 as he maintains his fundraising lead in the Florida House District 61 seat, according to the Florida Division of Elections website.
The Tampa attorney now has a total of $182,926 overall. After spending just under $139,000, Shaw has $44,551 cash-on-hand.
However, it was community activist Ed Narain who led the two-week fundraising period, raising $3,165 for a total of $95,306. With $36,892 in expenditures, Narain also leads with $59,822 cash-on-hand.
Shaw faces fellow Democrats Narain, Tatiana Denson and Sharon Carter, as well as write-in candidate Nicole Santiago, in the race to replace term-limited Rep. Betty Reed. HD 61 is a heavily Democratic district covering the Tampa neighborhoods of Seminole Heights, East Tampa, Ybor City and parts of West Tampa.
Denson did not report any contributions in the period, staying steady at $2,246 in donations; with $776 in her war chest. Carter and Santiago also reported no contributions during that time.
