Hasner says he raised $475,000

Congressional candidate Adam Hasner (R-Boca Raton) said he raised about $475,000 between July 26 and Sept. 30. That fundraising total is based on his press release -- not the actual Federal Election Commission report.

When we get a figure from his opponent, Lois Frankel (D-West Palm Beach), we will provide an update.

The contest between Frankel, a former West Palm Beach mayor and state legislator and Hasner, a former House majority leader, is one of the most expensive Congressional contests in Florida. Hasner had raised about $2.4 million and Frankel had raised about $2.3 million through July 25.

They are competing in the Broward/Palm Beach Congressional District 22. This is U.S. Rep. Allen West's current district but due to redistricting he has moved to safer Republican territory to the north. West raised about $6.5 million in 2010 to oust U.S. Rep. Ron Klein.
