The six-figure fundraising haul shows the high-level of
enthusiasm and momentum around the Sigman campaign
Proving the outpouring of support she has received since announcing her candidacy, Patricia Sigman will report raising $115,560 during the first month of her campaign for Florida State Senate District 9.
The final number reflects $90,810 raised into the official campaign account, as well as $24,750 brought in by the United for Change Political Committee.
“I am both humbled and energized by the strong outpouring of support we have received in just our first month on the trail,” declared Patricia Sigman. “Over and over, supporters in January made it clear that our government should belong to and work for the people it serves, not the powerful special interests that now control Tallahassee. By focusing on our shared values, we will unite for change to expand access to healthcare, protect and preserve our environment and clean drinking water, and fully fund our public education system for generations of Floridians to come. It was an outstanding first month, and we’re just getting started!”
An open seat due to term limits, State Senate District 9 encompasses all of Seminole County and a portion of western Volusia County. As the fastest changing red-to-blue State Senate district in Florida, Democratic performance increased at the top of the ticket by five points from the 2016 to 2018 election. Senate Victory sees this district as poised to flip and is committed to Patricia’s election in 2020.
