Rivera is fundraising flop this quarter, says NJ’s Hotline

U.S. Rep. David Rivera raised just $26,500 in the most recent three month reporting period. “Being under federal investigation certainly isn’t good for fundraising,” notes National Journal’s Hotline. “The GOP freshman, facing scrutiny over past campaign irregularities since being elected, brought in a dismal $26,500. His one saving grace: The Democrats’ much-hyped challenger, Luis Garcia, brought in just $103,000.”

If you want to read the Hotline’s full list of Top 10 House Fundraising flops, it’s here, but Rivera is the only Florida candidate in the Top 10. U.S. Rep. Dan Webster, did get an honorable mention, for only raising $146,000.
