Jacky Rosen’s record-breaking fundraising is the most ever raised for the second quarter of an election year in Nevada for a U.S. Senate race
The campaign for Nevada Congresswoman and Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate Jacky Rosen announced new fundraising totals today for the second quarter of 2018. Rosen’s campaign will report raising more than $2.1 million for the period of May 24 through June 30, bringing her to more than $3.5 million raised in the three-month period covering April through June and more than $3.8 million on hand. Jacky Rosen’s continued strong fundraising appears to have set a record for the most raised in the second quarter of an election year for a U.S. Senate race in Nevada.
To date, the Senate campaign has received more than 165,000 total donations over the past year. More than 96 percent of contributions to the campaign over the second quarter were $100 or less, and the campaign’s average contribution during this period was $40. The Rosen campaign has outraised the Heller campaign every single fundraising quarter since last year. The Rosen campaign has run an aggressive early digital ad campaign since April and launched six television ads in recent months.
“The support and enthusiasm for our campaign to flip this Senate seat have been unbelievable, and it’s helping bring us that much closer to a win in November,” said Rosen for Nevada campaign manager Danny Kazin. “While Dean Heller has been cozying up to President Trump and breaking his promises to Nevadans over the past year, we’ve been building a strong grassroots movement to hold him accountable and send Jacky Rosen to the Senate.”
Jacky Rosen is running to unseat Sen. Dean Heller, the most vulnerable Republican senator running for re-election and the only incumbent GOP senator facing a ‘toss-up’ race. Nevada’s Senate seat is widely viewed as the #1 most likely to flip parties in 2018.
