$42k for Heller in HD 52
In comparison, no other 2006 state house candidate in Pinellas County has reported a single month of fundraising this successful. In the race for District 52, Republican candidate Angelo Cappelli’s best full quarter was only $37,030. In a full year in the race, Democrat Liz McCallum has reported a total of $23,230 and, as of her last report,had only $2272 on hand.
“My campaign is off to a strong start,” said Heller. “While the total dollar figure is great news, what’s even more significant is that almost all of these funds came from individuals in our community, confirming broad local support for my candidacy.”
