Murphy leading fundraising for Pasco House seat

Incumbent state Rep. Amanda Murphy still leads the pack in total funds raised, according to newly-filed campaign finance reports.

Murphy, D-New Port Richey, raised $3,029 in May, for a total of $36,445. She now also has spent $7,705 overall and reported $8,722 worth of in-kind donations.

Murphy won a special election last year to replace Republican Mike Fasano after he was appointed Pasco County tax collector.

She is being challenged by Republicans James Mathieu and Chris Gregg for her House District 36 seat, taking in Port Richey and New Port Richey.

Mathieu’s numbers for May are $1,000 raised and $1,038 spent, for respective totals of $4,625 and $3,141. He also is posting $8,300 in loans.

Gregg raised $4,457 in May for a total of $13,562. He spent only $12, with total expenditures now of $2,241.
