Palm Beach Post Reports: Former West Palm Beach Mayor Lois Frankel, like Patrick Murphy has also sent out a blast email to contributors, looking both to fortify her campaign account for January and collect enough to pay any remaining debts from her fall campaign against Republican Adam Hasner.
“It’s not one of those things you like to do,” Frankel said, of having to again reach out to donors. “But for many of us in competitive districts, it’s a way of life. It comes with the territory.
“Having the opportunity to be in Congress is amazing,” she added. “But there are parts of the job that are less pleasant, and fundraising is one of them.” Frankel’s district, which spans Palm Beach and Broward counties, leans Democratic, but has toggled back and forth between the two parties since 2006, when Democrat Ron Klein defeated Republican incumbent Clay Shaw.
