Orlando, FL—Yesterday, Dr. Leo Valentin, Republican candidate for Florida’s 7th congressional district, announced raising more than $250,000 in donations in his first quarter since entering the race.
“We’re all very proud of the success we’ve seen in our fundraising since entering this race just a few short months ago. Before we launched our campaign, we knew that only a well-funded campaign would be capable to defeating Stephanie Murphy and the response we’ve seen to our campaign’s message in terms of fundraising has been incredibly encouraging,” said Dr. Valentin. “However, we know that this is only half the equation and that we cannot afford to take our foot off the gas pedal. We’ve also put significant time and resources into building a grassroots network that is growing every day. The surge we’ve seen in both fundraising and grassroots mobilization is a strong sign that the members of this district’s communities are tired of Murphy’s false promises and want someone new to represent their interests in Washington.”
The Valentin for Congress campaign filed with the Federal Election Commission on November 6th and launched the official campaign the same day with the rollout of an announcement video and website. Following the December 31st FEC reporting deadline, the campaign will report contributions totaling more than $250,000.
The Valentin for Congress campaign continues to build support across the district and has garnered endorsements that highlight Dr. Valentin’s momentum going into 2020. He has been endorsed by Longwood Mayor Matt Morgan, Lake Mary Commissioner Justin York, and former Four-Star Admiral and DHHS Assistant Secretary for Health Joxel Garcia.
Given his early fundraising success and grassroots support, Dr. Leo Valentin has established himself as the frontrunner in the race for the Republican nomination and the strongest candidate to take on Stephanie Murphy and win the November general election. The passionate response that the Valentin campaign has received to its message is a strong indication that Floridians are tired of the false promises and empty rhetoric they’ve endured from Murphy. As an outsider with fresh ideas and a unique perspective, Dr. Valentin appeals to a diverse mix of voters that will carry him to victory on election day.
