Sigman has outraised her Republican opponent for the 2nd straight month
Continuing the momentum from a strong first month of fundraising and a string of high-profile endorsements, Patricia Sigman will report raising $80,220 during February, the second month of her campaign for Florida State Senate District 9.
Sigman’s February fundraising number reflects $48,320 raised into the official campaign account, as well as $31,900 brought in by the United for Change Political Committee.
This marks the second straight month that Patricia Sigman has outraised her Republican opponent since joining the race on January 3rd.
From the time she launched her campaign through the end of February, Patricia Sigman raised a total of $195,780, as well as secured the endorsement of Senate Democratic Leader Designate Gary Farmer and the support of Senate Victory, and the endorsements of former Florida Education Commissioner Betty Castor, former Congresswoman Gwen Graham, former Democratic Attorney General nominee Sean Shaw, former Florida CFO Alex Sink, and Ruth’s List Florida.
“Since our launch in January, I have been honored by the overwhelming support we have received for our campaign to unite for change in Senate District 9,” declared Patricia Sigman. “People are excited to join our movement that is dedicated to taking on the most powerful special interests in Florida and putting the people back in charge of their state government. From the grassroots on up, we are building a campaign that addresses the needs of our workers, fully funds our public schools, and is committed to protecting and preserving our environment for generations of Floridians to come. We will keep this momentum going until we’ve flipped District 9 blue in November!”
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.
