The cash keeps flowing for Carlos Curbelo.

On Tuesday, Curbelo's campaign announced that the second term Republican from Miami raised $705,000 during the most recent fundraising quarter from April 1 to June 30. The Republican has $1.1 million cash on hand with 15 months remaining until the 2018 election, according to his campaign. 

Curbelo's fundraising haul ranks among the best for House members of both parties. After the first quarter of 2017, Curbelo ranked 32nd nationally among all House members and challengers in money raised. Second quarter totals have not been released publicly yet.

In 2016, Curbelo raised $3.8 million during his successful reelection campaign against former Rep. Joe Garcia.

Curbelo has drawn nominal opposition for his 2018 reelection bid despite his Miami-to-Key West district voting in favor of Democrat Hillary Clinton for president over Donald Trump by 16 percentage points in 2016.

"We are very grateful for all the enthusiasm and support for Carlos' reelection effort and have full confidence that come fall of 2018 the campaign will have all the resources necessary to highlight Carlos' bipartisan work in Congress on behalf of Miami-Dade and Florida Keys residents," said Chris Miles, Curbelo's 2016 campaign manager.
