Democratic congressional candidate Jared Moskowitz said Wednesday that he raised more than $100,000 in just the first 24 hours after announcing his bid to replace the retiring U.S. Rep. Ted Deutch.
Deutch declared his decision to step down on Monday, Feb. 28. At the time, Moskowitz praised Deutch’s record in Congress and floated his own desire to possibly run for the seat.
Moskowitz made that move official this past Friday. And in just 24 hours, his team says he pulled in more than $100,000.
“I deeply appreciate the people who believe in my ability to fight for our community,” Moskowitz said in a statement on the fundraising numbers. “I’m proud of this testament to my long record of success in fighting for our Democratic priorities as a legislator and my work ethic as Florida’s Director of Emergency Management.”
