SUNSHINESTATENEWS.COM – Running to replace state Rep. Ritch Workman, R-Melbourne, in the Florida House, businesswoman Monique Miller announced this week that she had raised almost $10,100 for her bid for the Republican nomination.
“I’m honored and humbled by the outpouring of support from the grassroots,” said Miller.
“My husband and I have lived in Brevard County for over 15 years, and it’s clear that the community wants to be represented by someone they know and trust.”
Miller is behind primary rival businessman Brian Hodgers in the money chase. Hodgers brought in $10,450 in September.
So far in the campaign, Hodgers has brought in more than $79,520 and relied on $40,000 he loaned his campaign.
Attorney Fritz VanVolkenburgh is also running and, by the end of August, he raised $1,055 and has relied on almost $15,000 he loaned his campaign.
Last year, Miller was underfunded when she challenged state Sen. Thad Altman, R-Melbourne, in the Republican primary but she pulled 35 percent in the primary.
