Shane Abbott grows financial lead in HD 5

by Margaret Willard

Shane Abbott is out-raising challengers in the GOP Primary race for the House District 5 seat. Abbott is running to succeed term-limited GOP Rep. Brad Drake. He raked in more than $47,000 in March, and his campaign and political committee has raised more than $389,000.

HD 5, a Panhandle district, is a Republican stronghold without a Democratic challenger, making the GOP Primary a winner-take-all event for now. Abbott is facing Jackson County Commissioner  Clint Pate and Marianna Republican  Vance Coley for the GOP nomination.

“We’re looking forward to building on our momentum towards a victory on August 23,” Abbott said.
