in Uncategorized by

Former State Rep. Shawn Harrison banked another $1,350 in fundraising July 5-18 for his campaign to retake the House District 63 seat.

In the same period, Harrison also received just under $1,200 of in-kind support from the Republican Party of Florida. The Tampa Republican now has a total of $112,241, and $46,688 cash on hand.

Harrison faces Democrat incumbent Rep. Mark Danish in the race to represent north Hillsborough County. First elected to the House in 2010, Harrison served only a single term, losing to Danish in 2012.

In the two-week reporting period, Danish added $4,080 – plus another $1,625 in-kind donation from the Florida Democratic Party — for an overall total of $78,497. The incumbent spent $4,306, leaving him with just over $55,378 cash on hand.
