The second quarter of 2022 proved fruitful for incumbent Republican U.S. Rep. Mario Díaz-Balart, who stacked $210,000 to defend his seat representing Florida’s 26th Congressional District.
He also spent $140,000 while ramping up campaign efforts through a blend of print and digital marketing.
By the end of the quarter, he had more than $1.6 million left to spend, according to his filings with the Federal Election Commission.
His sole Democratic opponent, middle school teacher and small business owner Christine Olivo, faces a potentially steep FEC fine for failing to file her Q2 fundraising report on Friday. More on that later.
