Newcomer Lori Halbert raises more money than incumbent John Tobia
Republican incumbent Rep. John Tobia has raised an impressive $52,143.56 in contributions for his 2010 re-election bid. However, his rival Republican Lori Halbert has earned a whooping $58,804,43.
The newbie in the political scene has made quite a slash already with a super endorsement from Republican national rising star Florida’s former speaker of the house Marco Rubio, who is the surprise frontrunner for Florida’s U.S. Senate seat.
There are three other candidate running for Florida House seat district-31: Democrats Joe Pishgar and Joseph Crowley, and a Conservative-Republican Daniel M. O’Brien. So far all three candidates have raised a total of $898.
