For the second quarter in a row, Democrat Debbie Mucarsel-Powell has outraised Republican Senator Rick Scott.
The Debbie for Florida campaign raised more than $2 million in the fourth quarter of 2023 and over $4 million since launching in August. The Democratic campaign called Rick Scott “self-serving” and an “extremist.”
“Floridians see Debbie Mucarsel-Powell showing up across Florida and fighting for the issues that matter most to them, which is why they’re joining our grassroots movement to beat Rick Scott,” said campaign manager Kate Letzler Moore. “Voters know Rick Scott is an extremist who supports a national abortion ban and wrote the plan to sunset Medicare and Social Security. Meanwhile, Debbie is a tireless champion for quality and affordable health care, expanding economic opportunity, and safe communities.”
Florida Democrats say Debbie Mucarsel-Powell has the grassroots momentum to defeat Republican Rick Scott in November, providing fundraising numbers to demonstrate the level of support so far:
- Average donation of just $35
- Nearly 60,000 total donors
- Over 100,000 total donations
- Donations from every congressional district across Florida
- Not a dime in self-funding
“This grassroots momentum will only continue to grow as more Floridians unite behind Debbie’s campaign,” Kate Letzler Moore added.
Debbie Mucarsel-Powell served as a U.S. representative for South Florida’s 26th congressional district from 2019 to 2021. Rick Scott was elected to the U.S. Senate in 2018 and is currently serving his first term representing the state of Florida. Prior to his election to the U.S. Senate, Rick Scott served two terms as the 45th Governor of Florida.
