House candidate Lois Frankel raised over $400,000 for the second quarter of 2012, her campaign reported late Monday. The congressional hopeful’s latest haul brings the total raised for her campaign to about $2.2 million.
Frankel, one of the top fundraising campaigns in the country, also raised over $400,000 for the first quarter of 2012. Frankel’s Democratic primary opponent, Kristin Jacobs, has not yet announced her second quarter numbers.
“Over the next 5 months, Lois’ campaign will have the resources necessary to her message out in Broward and Palm Beach Counties,” Frankel campaign manager Greg Richardson said a release.
As the primary heats up, both candidates on Monday rolled out endorsements. After Jacobs announced she received the support of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), Frankel’s campaign responded by rolling out an endorsement of Rep. Ted Deutch (D-FL).
Frankel and Jacobs are running to take on former state Senate Majority Leader Adam Hasner (R) in the 22nd Congressional District, currently held by Rep. Allen West (R-FL). West is now running for re-election in the more GOP-friendly Palm Beach-Treasure Coast District 18.
