Republican candidate for U.S. Congress in Florida’s 26th District, Irina Vilariño, is off to a good start in her bid to turn South Florida red.
This week, Vilariño announced she amassed just over $270,000 in her first quarter. She is currently the only Republican filed in the race and is running to unseat Democrat Debbie Mucarsel-Powell.
“I am overwhelmed by the generosity and commitment of my donors to our cause and all we believe in,” said Vilariño. “From the very beginning of our campaign, I have made it clear that the American Dream should not suffer because of liberals who insist every government action should end in higher taxes and needless regulations. I believe in a freedom and prosperity that sustains our strong economic growth under President Trump and ultimately restores faith in the American people.”
