In Just 5 Weeks, Debbie Mucarsel-Powell Announces Strong $1.5 Million Haul and $1.1 Million Cash On Hand

Over 33,000 Grassroots Donors, Average Donation $35

Debbie’s Grassroots Campaign Has Out-Raised Or Matched Each Of Rick Scott’s Fundraising Quarters This Cycle

MIAMI — Today, Debbie Mucarsel-Powell announced not only a strong $1.5 million haul and $1.1 million cash on hand, but that in just 5 weeks since launching, her grassroots campaign has out-raised or matched each of Rick Scott’s fundraising quarters this cycle.

In direct contrast to Rick Scott’s lackluster grassroots support, Debbie’s campaign is driven by over 33,000 grassroots donors with an average gift of $35.

“This campaign is fueled by grassroots support and I’m so grateful and humbled by what we’ve accomplished together in just 5 weeks,” said Debbie Mucarsel-Powell. “I feel the energy across the state and know Floridians are ready for change. Rick Scott has aligned himself with extremists: writing the plan to end Social Security and Medicare, pushing to raise taxes on the middle class, and working to pass a national abortion ban. This is not who we are in Florida which is why I’m fighting every day to stop the extremism and create a better future for our families.”

Previous polling has shown Debbie Mucarsel-Powell leading Rick Scott. Debbie’s grassroots campaign includes endorsements from leaders across Florida, the Congressional Hispanic Caucus BOLD PAC, EMILY’S List, Giffords PAC, and League of Conservation Voters.


About Debbie Mucarsel-Powell

Debbie Mucarsel-Powell came to the U.S. from South America at a young age with her mom and sisters, fleeing violence and searching for a better life.

While her mother worked double shifts as a home health care provider, Debbie worked at a doughnut shop to help her family make ends meet. After working her way through high school and college, Debbie worked as the Associate Dean at Florida International University’s Colleges of Health and Medicine. While at FIU, Debbie helped lead a program to expand access to affordable healthcare to more Floridians.

Serving in Congress, Debbie fought to expand opportunity for every American. Debbie wrote the bill to expand seniors’ Medicare Advantage coverage, and she worked with Republicans to provide economic relief to families and small businesses, and secured $200 million for Everglades restoration. When Debbie was 24, she tragically lost her father to gun violence, and she has been a lifelong advocate for reducing crime and keeping guns out of the hands of dangerous criminals.

Now, Debbie is running for the U.S. Senate because our democracy, our economy, and our rights are all on the line — and Senator Rick Scott has failed Floridians. Florida is one of the least affordable states in the nation, but Senator Rick Scott wants to raise taxes on our families and end Social Security and Medicare coverage. As someone who takes care of her elderly mother, Debbie will always fight to protect Medicare, Social Security, and access to quality, affordable healthcare.

And while Rick Scott has pushed for a national abortion ban, and even cosponsored a bill that would criminalize doctors and nurses, Debbie will protect the rights of women and families and work to sign Roe v. Wade into law.

Debbie and her husband Robert live in Miami and have three children, Willow, Jude and Siena, two dogs, Spike and Kali, and a bunny named Ashanti.
