Learned Reaches Fundraising Goal in Congressional Race
Andrew Learned is running for the District 15 seat in the U.S. Congress.
VALRICO – Andrew Learned’s Congressional race for the 15th District reached its goal of raising $50,000 in the two weeks since U.S. Rep. Dennis Ross announced his retirement.
Learned’s campaign said that reaching the goal in less than 14 days shows the momentum that is building in the district and across the country.
The campaign garnered new interest after Ross announced April 11 that he would not run for reelection. Learned said he had already surpassed the total number of donations and total number of individual donations towards any candidate in FL-15 in at least the last decade.
“I am unbelievably thankful for all of the support that we’ve received especially over these last two weeks,” Learned said. “We’ve been working hard and gaining steam in grassroots circles for 11 months and this two-week snapshot into our fundraising is proof that we can enter September with a fundraising lead over whoever the Republican good ol’ boy network tries to throw at us.
“This is why I am proud that the bulk of my contributions have come from small-dollar donors – people can see that I am not bought and paid for.”
Learned, a Democrat, is a veteran and owner of a neighborhood learning center called GradePower Learning.
CD 15 includes portions of Hillsborough, Polk and Lake counties. The seat is currently held by Ross, a Republican. Thus far, at least 12 candidates have announced campaigns for the seat.
The primary is Aug. 28. The general election is Nov. 6.
