The man trying to unseat Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz in the state's Democratic primary has reportedly taken in upwards of $2 million for his campaign.

Tim Canova told The Hill his campaign is in good shape as he tries to win a spot on the November ballot.

"People all over Florida and all over our district are supporting our campaigning for change," Canova said. "They have had enough of a political system that is awash in corporate money and corporate influence.

"We all have an interest in a decent jobs market, affordable prescription drug prices and health care, educational opportunities, and safe and health communities. Wasserman Schultz's corporate donors are often standing in the way of progress for all."

Wasserman Schultz is currently the chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee.

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who is still in the presidential race despite being mathematically eliminated by Democrat Hillary Clinton, is no fan of Wasserman Schultz and has endorsed Canova in the Florida race.

The Hill reports that Wasserman Schultz has not released her fundraising totals since April, but that she has raised $1.7 million from the start of 2015 through March of this year.

Canova said this week he's still rooting for Sanders ahead of next month's Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.
