Florida Freshmen Are Two of the Top Ten Congressional Fundraisers
Newly elected Congressmen Ron Klein (see photo) and Vern Buchanan are among the top ten Congressional fundraisers, according to CQPolitics.
Klein is number four on the list with $1.8 million raised. Buchanan is number ten with $1.4 million.
Rep. Klein defeated long time incumbent Clay Shaw last year, in one of the most hotly contested races in the nation. Buchanan narrowly inherited the 13th Congressional district from Katherine Harris.
Buchanan's opponent, Christine Jennings, is one of the best fundraisers among congressional challengers.
