Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz added more than $230,000 to her campaign to defend her seat representing Florida’s 23rd Congressional District.
That sum means the nine-term Congresswoman’s campaign war chest is creeping up to nearly $1 million cash on hand. Its size dwarfs what’s available to her closest competitor, Republican Carla Spalding, who seems to be having a slowdown in fundraising.
Spalding, who lost in the 2020 match-up with Wasserman Schultz, has $62,318 cash on hand, and owes $25,095 after collecting $310,255 in the previous quarter.
Both Wasserman Schultz and Spalding are attracting donations from across the country.
