Record-breaking Q1 fundraising total

Yesterday, I held a press conference in Spokane’s Riverfront Park to announce our campaign has raised nearly $404,000 in just over a month of campaigning—a RECORD for new congressional candidates in Washington’s 5th District! The massive amount comes from more than 350 individual donors. By way of comparison, it is more than both incumbent Reps. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) and Dan Newhouse (WA-04) raised in the previous quarter.

I am honored and humbled by the amount of support the campaign has received from all parts of the Fifth District. From Walla Walla to Republic, we’ve been getting donations from retirees, veterans, business owners, farmers…people who want to preserve the American Dream, secure the border, and stop the government from overreaching and overspending. 

Our fundraising total is just one visible sign of the incredibly positive response I have received while meeting with people in every part of the district. I was born and raised here and have represented Spokane voters in the Legislature and at the county courthouse—yet I am always learning more about wheat and the Snake River dams, about our timber and mining in the north, about veteran’s medical care, about Fairchild, about protecting Social Security and Medicare, about homelessness, crime, and lawbreakers coming into our country. The job of a representative is to listen to the people and be their voice in the House.

Our goal was to raise $250,000 by the end of the first quarter, and I am so grateful that we far surpassed that amount thanks to so many hard-working people who believe in our plans, volunteering and contributing. I used to say if I had a dollar for every person I’ve heard complain about this Administration, I’d have a million dollars. And I think we’re well on our way there—people want a change in D.C. and they do not want this Congressional seat to go to radical Democrats. Newt Gingrich and George Nethercutt helped turn the Fifth Congressional District Republican 30 years ago, and we’re going to make sure it stays that way.
