Leading Grayson-opponent, John Quiñones, raises $155K during second quarter
John Quiñones, the leading Republican candidate in the race to face Alan Grayson in November’s election, released proof of his campaign’s momentum, raising over $155,000 during the financial quarter ending June 30th.
Quiñones, who has represented much of the area within the Congressional District during his time in the Florida Legislature and the Osceola County Commission, filed to run for the 9th Congressional District on April 2, 2012. His campaign also finished the financial reporting period with $105,225 in cash on hand and only $10,000 marked for the general, more than any other Republican candidate has raised thus far.
“I am honored to have such broad support from the community for my message as I seek to represent them in Washington.” Osceola Chairman John Quiñones said. “I feel blessed to have strong support as I take my message of smaller government and fewer taxes across the district. It is clear that the residents of this district do not want Alan Grayson representing them in Congress.”
Congressional District 9 is the newly created seat made up of all or parts of Osceola, Orange, and Polk counties.
