Brian Mast snags $355,835 for re-election bid; Frankel war chest nears $1 million

Brian Mast talks to voters at a 2016 Republican candidate forum in Stuart .

Freshman U.S. Rep. Brian Mast, R-Palm City, collected $355,835 in campaign contributions during the first quarter of 2017 to begin his defense of a Palm Beach-Treasure Coast House seat that is usually a battleground between Republicans and Democrats.

 

Mast began April with $409,636 in cash on hand for his 2018 re-election effort.

 

While Mast had a healthy haul, another Florida freshman in a competitive seat — Rep. Charlie Crist, D-St. Petersburg — raised $720,604 during the first quarter. In what could be Florida’s most contested House seat next year, Rep. Carlos Curbelo, R-Miami, raised $613,623 for the quarter.

 

Other Palm Beach County House members:

 

• Rep. Lois Frankel, D-West Palm Beach, raised $206,046 and has $926,542 in cash on hand.

 

• Rep. Ted Deutch, D-Boca Raton, raised $51,772 and has $260,717 on hand.
