Dave Brat raises $400,000 in 40 days

– More than 90 percent came from individual donors –


RICHMOND, VA (July 15, 2014) – Republican candidate for Congress Dave Brat announced today that his campaign has raised nearly $400,000 in the 40 days ended June 30th, with the bulk of those dollars coming from 4673 individual donors.

Of the actual $399,660 raised from May 22 to the end of the reporting period on June 30th, $363,560 – or 91 percent – came from 4673 individuals.  The figures are part of the candidate’s quarterly finance report due today at the Federal Election Commission.

The majority of all 4684 donors were small dollar contributors.  4402 donated $200 or less, while 271 contributors donated more than $200.  Political committees, party committees, and PACs accounted for 11 contributions totaling $36,100.

“The response has been incredible.  It has exceeded all expectations.  I’m so grateful to the thousands of contributors who have supported us,” said Brat.  “The huge number of smaller dollar contributors shows how much of a grassroots ‘campaign of the people’ this really is.”

He continued, “Our campaign issues are about changing Washington.  Issues like terms limits, stopping out-of-control federal spending, repealing and replacing Obamacare, and securing our southern border have really struck a chord with voters of the Seventh District.  As I talk to groups and travel door-to-door around the district, people are concerned about how much these issues affect jobs and the economy.  Obamacare is causing businesses not to hire, it’s forcing people to go from full time to part time, and it has only led to higher health insurance costs.  Our open borders and calls for amnesty are about politicians in Washington who are more interested in helping their crony capitalist buddies get cheap labor and drive down American wages than in helping immigrants.  And Washington is running up our national credit card with out-of-control spending, sticking our kids and grandkids with a bill of $50,000 for every man, woman, and child.  These are the issues that we’re going to continue to talk about.”

As of June 30th, Brat had raised $609,145 since the start of his campaign in January.  As of June 30th, he had $218,873 cash on hand.

    Not too bad for a liberal professor in a conservative district, huh?

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
