Bay Harbor Islands Council member Jordan Leonard hit a fundraising high last month, when he collected more than $50,000 to succeed fellow Democrat Rep. Joe Geller in the Florida House, his campaign said.
Since filing a year ago, Leonard has raised $251,000 between his campaign and political committee, Americans for Florida. January marked his largest single-month gain.
Leonard’s campaign hasn’t yet filed its official January fundraising numbers with the state. The deadline is Feb. 10.
If the Legislature and Supreme Court approve proposed redistricting, he will run in House District 106, which would span coastal Miami-Dade County between Miami Beach and Aventura.
