Lee County, Fla. – Conservative media personality, lawyer, and former Trump White House surrogate Ford O’Connell has raised over $170,000 for his state house campaign.
Ford O’Connell said: “In the midst of unprecedented inflation and soaring gas prices that are squeezing Florida families, I am incredibly grateful for the individuals who have stepped up to give what they could to support our campaign in such a short time. They believe in the importance of our cause. I, too, have put in a significant contribution from my own funds as an investment in the future of HD-77. The hardworking people of the District deserve a fighter in Tallahassee; someone who will stand up for them and who will stand with Governor DeSantis. My investment is more than a check – it’s a promise that, if elected, my door will always be open to the people of HD-77 and I will always ask how I can help.”
