Joe Garcia reports $460k raised last quarter, $2.2m raised overall

Sounds like another good fundraising quarter for U.S. Rep. Joe Garcia (although we don't know cash on hand figures yet). The press release:

MIAMI, FL -- Representative Joe Garcia's campaign announced today that it raised more than $460,000 in the first quarter of 2014, bringing the incumbent’s total to more than $2.2 million raised to date.

“I am proud that the vast majority of these contributions were from individual Floridians who share my commitment to fighting for South Florida values like strengthening Medicare, supporting businesses that create jobs and reforming our broken immigration system," said Representative Joe Garcia. " Our campaigns's fundraising strength is a clear sign that our message is resonating, and I look forward to continue doing all I can to serve as a champion for South Florida residents, working across party lines to get Congress focused on tackling the challenges that truly matter to our community."

 Additional information contained in the report includes:

* Nearly 70% of all donations were Florida based
* 90% of donations were from individual supporters
* Over 40% of all donations were $100 or under
