Eric Lynn announced that he has raised $652,000 for his race against former governor Charlie Crist in the 13th District Congressional Democratic primary.

Crist, who entered the race in October, said Monday he had raised more than $500,000.

Lynn's last quarter saw him raise "more than $100,000," which would make it his worst fundraising quarter so far. For example, the former Obama administration official netted $400,000 in his first quarter after announcing last spring.

According to a news release, Lynn has $550,000 in the bank. 

“Across Pinellas County, I have received an outpouring of support from voters who want to see meaningful change in Washington and our community,” said Lynn in the statement. “This campaign would not be possible without these supporters who have donated their time and money because they know I will champion policies that reflect Democratic values, make economic security possible for Pinellas families and keep our country secure.”
