WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson’s re-election campaign now has $8.5 million in the bank, with about $1.4 million brought in during the just-ended fourth quarter of last year, the campaign announced today.
In a Facebook posting, the campaign also said the final down-to-the-penny figures were still being tallied for reporting to the FEC by the Jan. 15 deadline.
“The figures reflect strong support for Sen. Nelson,” Christian Robinson, a campaign representative, said. “Meantime, the senator remains focused on doing his job for Florida. He’s always believed that if you do your job the politics will take care of itself.”
At the end of the third quarter, Nelson’s campaign had more money in the bank than any other Democratic U.S. senator up for re-election this year.
