TOPICS: Press Releases
Craig’s campaign has raised over $1 million in 6 months from more than 5,000 donors
Eagan, MN – Today, Angie Craig, who is challenging Rep. Jason Lewis in Minnesota’s Second Congressional District, announced that her campaign for Congress will report raising over $520,000 in the first quarter of 2018. The report covers the months of January, February, and March. The total fundraising haul, one of the largest in the nation for a Congressional challenger, comes from the donations of over 3,000 individual donors. The campaign has over $740,000 cash on hand. This is the second quarterly report from Craig and the campaign has now raised over $1,070,000 total since filing on October 1, 2017. The campaign has more than 5,000 donors in total this cycle with 80% giving $100 or less.
“It’s humbling to see the outpouring of grassroots support from all across Minnesota,” said Craig. “Thousands of people have chipped in to make sure that we have the resources we need to bring change to Washington and real representation to this district. Republican efforts to raise healthcare costs and prioritize tax breaks to big corporations have only taken us backwards. Minnesotans deserve a leader fighting for a stronger economy and higher wages and in Congress, I’ll be that voice.”
A complete fundraising report will be available when it is filed with the Federal Elections Commission prior to the April 15, 2018 filing deadline.
Craig is a former journalist and healthcare leader who lives with her wife and four sons in Eagan. Please visit angiecraig.com to learn more.
