Out Of Congress, Grayson Still Outraising GOP Congressman

One of the weaker fundraising efforts in the House this quarter - at least for a member facing the prospect of a competitive race -- comes from freshman Rep. Daniel Webster (R-Fla.), who only raised $30,000 in the first three months of the year.

In fact, his fundraising haul was so unimposing that he was outraised by the congressman he defeated, former Rep. Alan Grayson (D), even though he's not currently an active candidate for 2012. Grayson's campaign account brought in $38,000 - most from small donations from dozens of donors apparently hoping he'll mount a comeback.

Webster currently represents an Orlando-area district that has been closely contested in the last several elections. It gave President Obama 52 percent of the vote, though the district lines will likely be altered in the upcoming redistricting.
