Miami Republican Rep. Carlos Curbelo's campaign says it raked in nearly half a million dollars in the last three months of 2015 for his contested reelection campaign.
He raised $459,000 and has $1.51 cash on hand, campaign spokeswoman Nicole Rapanos told the Miami Herald. She said 45 percent of donations "came from South Floridians contributing $200 or less."
"We are confident that we will have ample resources to share Carlos' record of effective, bipartisan work in Congress on behalf of the people of South Dade and the Florida Keys," she said in a statement. Curbelo has been among the most prolific freshman Republican fundraisers.
Curbelo, who represents Westchester to Key West, is running in a redrawn swing district that now favors Democrats by a wider margin than when he ousted Democrat Joe Garcia in 2014. Garcia sounds like he wants to run again.
Democrat Annette Taddeo, who has lagged behind the incumbent's fundraising so far, has the party's backing in Washington D.C. She'll have to report her latest contributions by the end of the week; several House Democrats hosted fundraisers for her before the quarter ended Dec. 31. She has another one scheduled for Saturday -- in the new fundraising period -- with Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chairman Ben Ray Luján on Miami Beach.
Andrew Korge, son of Hillary Clinton donor Chris Korge, has said he intends to seek the seat as well.
