Murphy Enters Campaign Home Stretch with Nearly $1.7M Cash On Hand
WINTER PARK, FLA. – U.S. Congresswoman Stephanie Murphy today reported raising more than $750,000 in the third quarter of 2020, shattering her own campaign’s record for all previous quarters. Murphy enters the final quarter of 2020 with nearly $1.7 million cash on hand – eight times more than her Republican opponent’s cash on hand.
“We are proud to see the support and momentum for Stephanie Murphy continue to grow in the final weeks of the campaign,” said Chip Harris, deputy campaign manager for Stephanie Murphy for Congress. “While Stephanie’s opponents have pledged their loyalty to President Trump and support his Administration’s efforts to repeal our health care, Stephanie Murphy is fighting to strengthen our health care and is working in a bipartisan way to expand coverage and lower premiums. We need more bipartisan bridge builders in Congress like Stephanie Murphy, not more Trump rubber-stamps like her opponents.”
In the pre-primary report filed in August, Murphy reported raising $152,527. In the remaining weeks of the quarter, Murphy reported raising $602,107, for a total of $754,635 raised in the third quarter of 2020. Murphy enters the fourth quarter with $1,695,407 cash on hand. She reported no personal loans, unlike her Republican opponent.
