Republican Candidate Neal Dunn, running for Florida Congressional District 2, today announced that his campaign will file with over $500,000 in his first seven weeks as a candidate – a new record in FL-02. Dunn raised more than $450,000 in contributions and personally added $50,000 to his campaign during the third quarter of 2016. Dunn’s record for contributions during his first quarter of fundraising greatly surpasses the $377,000 Congresswoman Gwen Graham raised during the first quarter of her campaign two years ago as a non-incumbent in the 2014 election.
“I am humbled by all of the support and encouragement I have received since announcing my candidacy just seven weeks ago,” said Dr. Dunn. “But most importantly, I am grateful to each and every supporter who put their faith in me through their contributions.”
“I believe this outpouring of support is proof that the residents of our community are looking for strong Republican leadership to represent our area in Congress,” said Dr. Dunn. “I look forward to continuing to build relationships and momentum as I advocate for a conservative agenda on issues that matter the most to our community, including helping to strengthen our economy, grow our work force, support our military and repeal Obamacare.”
Since announcing his candidacy for Florida Congressional District 2, Dr. Dunn has been endorsed by former Speaker Allan Bense, former Senate President Don Gaetz and former Speaker Will Weatherford.
