Republican Alina García had another big fundraising month in February, when she added nearly $100,000 to her campaign for Senate District 38.
The veteran political operative now has $232,000 between her campaign account and political committee. That positions her about $100,000 shy of matching Democratic opponent Janelle Perez, a local business owner and active LGBTQ community member.
Among García’s 90 individual donors: Juan Kuryla, who in January left his role as director of PortMiami for an executive position with Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings.
Perez raised a comparatively meager $14,000, which brought her total holdings through Feb. 28 to about $338,000.
