Lamas run as Republicans to replace the incumbent GOP representative. Bryan Avilathat is temporary. He is the only candidate who has been declared in the competition so far.
In a statement Monday, Lamas attempted to change its fundraising numbers as potential Republican challengers weigh in on entry into the contest.
“We believed we would do well in our first month, and these numbers speak for themselves,” said Lamas.
“The support within the district shows strong support from the community. I look forward to campaigning in the months to come and it’s encouraging to know that we’ve had so much support from the start. “
The Lamas fundraising report is not yet posted on the Division of Elections website. Candidates and political committees have April 12th to report all financial activity by March 31st. These documents show where most of the donations come from.
So far, however, Lamas has remained unchallenged as a potential successor to Avila. Last November, Avila won re-election with around 30 points. That was the second largest of his four parliamentary victories. He won every race by at least 19 percentage points, which shows that the seat is likely safe in Republican hands in the next cycle.

“I have been a long-time resident of this community and I believe we cannot watch as our country and our state face so many serious challenges,” said Lamas when he announced his candidacy in March.
“We did a lot of things right in Florida and I want to keep fighting for free markets and the American way. We must also learn from our mistakes in order to solve today’s challenges. Whether it’s our infrastructure or our public order, let’s build things right and for the future. “
