State lawmakers rake in contributions the weeks leading into the legislative session. They aren’t allowed to accept campaign contributions while the session is convened.
December 2019 was no exception. District 2 State Rep. Alex Andrade raised $16,500.
District 1 Rep. Mike Hill got $9,630–mostly from political action committees and companies and individuals outside of his north Escambia County district. Very few contributions came from people in his district–only $525.
