Here’s the latest news out of Georgia:
Democrat Jon Ossoff will report raising more than $1 million for his U.S. Senate bid over the last three months as he races to establish himself as the frontrunner in a contest with three other well-known contenders competing to challenge Republican David Perdue.
Ossoff told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that his fundraising haul includes contributions from more than 19,000 donors who made about 30,000 contributions, including roughly 96% that were under $200. He also said he added nearly 8,000 new donors who had not given to his 2017 campaign for a U.S. House seat.
The Ossoff campaign did not release how much cash it has in its account. He reported in October roughly $1.3 million in cash on hand, the most of any Democratic rivals in the race.
He’s the first leading Senate candidate to reveal their fundraising for the quarter, which spans from October through December. The dash for cash serves as an important test of campaign strength to the donors, party officials and activists closely watching each contest.
The fact that Ossoff has grown his supporter base indicates that he might have the potential to be the strongest candidate in the Democratic Primary. We shall see. Let’s keep up the momentum to flip this seat blue. Click here to donate and get involved with Ossoff’s campaign.
