Tim Canova outraised U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz during the most recent reporting period.
Canova raised $1 million while Wasserman Schultz raised about $300,000 between July 1 and Aug. 10, according to campaign finance reports filed with the Federal Election Commission.
But she remained ahead in cash on hand with about $1 million remaining while he had $476,000.
Throughout the election cycle through Aug. 10, Canova has raised about $3.3 million while Wasserman Schultz has raised $3.1 million. She has been closing the gap with multiple donations between $1,000 and $2,700 in recent days. That's an impressive haul for Canova, a first-time candidate and Nova Southeastern University law professor who is challenging an incumbent who first won office in 1992 for state house.
Canova got a boost in fundraising after Bernie Sanders announced his support for Canova and after Wasserman Schultz stepped down as Democratic National Committee chair.
The Democrats are competing in the Aug. 30 primary in a district that stretches from western Broward to northern Miami-Dade County.
This blog was updated after Wasserman Schultz's report posted at the FEC.
