CRESCENT BEACH, Fla., Jan. 30, 2018 –– Nancy Soderberg’s campaign for Florida’s Sixth Congressional district today announced raising $207,989 last quarter, totalling $544,636 since launching the campaign July 2017. The total Soderberg raised makes her the most competitive Democrat in recent history, demonstrating the determination of Democrats to win this seat.
On the heels of nonpartisan University of Virginia Center for Politics’ analyst Larry Sabato’s Crystal Ball moving the district to “Likely Republican” from “Safe Republican,” this district is one of the most competitive in the country. Soderberg, national security expert, former United Nations ambassador, educator and small business owner, has so far announced endorsements from respected Volusia County community leaders and elected officials Florida State Representative Patrick Henry, Volusia County Council At-Large Representative Joyce Cusack and Daytona Beach Mayor Derrick L. Henry.
“Our campaign continues to build momentum, and I am honored to receive so many grassroots donations,” said Soderberg. “As I meet with more and more voters, it’s clear the families of our district are ready for a representative that will listen to their concerns and work hard for them in Congress. I will fight for working families to ensure affordable and quality healthcare, great public education for our kids and work for our middle class. Our campaign continues to grow stronger and we will win this race.”
