The re-election campaign of feisty Florida freshman GOP Rep. Allen West is firing on all cylinders, raising $1.8 million in the first quarter, according to documents filed Monday with the Federal Election Commission. The campaign now has $3.3 million in the bank, The Hill reports.

West raised more than five times as much as his Democratic challenger, Patrick Murphy, who took in $350,000 during the first quarter, leaving him with about $1 million in cash, according to The Hill.

“The fact that 97 percent of our contributions came from individual contributors, instead of Washington lobbyists and special interests, is a sign Americans want a strong constitutional conservative in the House that is willing to stand for the principles that made America great,” West said in a statement.

“Thanks to the generous financial support we have across the 18th District, Florida, and the nation, we have the resources to continue advocating for policies to get our economy back on track by getting government out of the way and out of the pockets of hard working taxpayers, return our nation to a fiscally responsible course, develop domestic energy resources to lower gas prices and move toward energy security, and continue to ensure we have the defense capabilities to meet future strategic challenges.”
