In the first quarter of 2018 the Florida Democratic Party posted strong fundraising numbers, raising over $1.8 million and out-raising the Florida GOP by over $325,000. This is the first full-quarter of fundraising under FDP Chairwoman Terrie Rizzo, who was elected in December.

​FDP ​Chairwoman Terrie Rizzo​ released the following statement responding to the strong quarter of fundraising:

“After twenty years of Republican rule in Tallahassee, Floridians are ready for change and want leaders who will fight for them. With an impressive number of candidates running and ​back to back special election victories​ in 2018​, Florida Democrats are out-organizing, out-raising, and out-working​ Florida​ Republicans. The FDP continues to​ speak to the issues that matter to Floridians and we are investing in a state-of-the-art field, data, and digital program​ ​to propel our Democratic candidates to victory this fall. ​Democrats are creating momentum and energy and our fundraising numbers are just the latest sign that ​our message is resonating across the state.”
