Trump raises most Florida campaign contributions in 2020 presidential race

Florida is the third most lucrative state for President Donald Trump’s re-election bid. Trump has received nearly 16 times more than the closest Democratic candidate in campaign contributions in the state.

Trump has raised more than $5.2 million from Floridians to his reelection campaign or affiliated committees, according to Federal Election Commission data, from constituents who have contributed more than $200 as of March 31.

Democrats in the state have raised about $1.1 million from Florida donors who have given more than $200 as of March 31. The primary source of those contributions has been given to California Sen. Kamala Harris, who has received $326,582.

For Trump, only Texas ($5.7 million) and California ($5.3 million) have supplied more money than Florida to his reelection campaign endeavors, according to the Palm Beach Post. Florida is the ninth most lucrative state for Democrats.

The FEC does not require candidates to itemize contributions of $200 or less.
