Orange County mayoral candidate Rob Panepinto‘s campaign is reporting that he raised just over $100,000 in March for his official campaign and his political committee combined.
Panepinto, a Winter Park entrepreneur, now has topped the half-million dollar mark in fundraising in his quest for the mayor’s office being vacated by term-limited Mayor Teresa Jacobs.
His campaign announced Tuesday that it had raised $36,200 in March and that Panepinto’s independent political campaign, Vision Orange County, had raised $64,000. That pushes the campaign’s total funds raised to just over $324,000, and Vision Orange County’s to $180,000.
Panepinto faces Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings and Orange County Commissioner Pete Clarke in the non-partisan mayor’s race. Neither Demings nor Clarke have made any announcements yet about their March fundraising.
The Orange County Supervisor of Elections Office has not yet posted any detailed reports for March. Panepinto finished February with about $230,000 cash in his campaign fund, and about $50,000 in the independent committee.
