PAUL DAVIS RAISES $330,000, WITH OVER 75% OF DONORS COMING FROM KANSAS
Since launching his campaign in August, Davis has raised over $730,000
Lawrence, Kan. – Today, the Paul Davis for Kansas campaign announced a successful fourth quarter fundraising report. During the quarter, which ran from October 1 – December 31, the campaign raised over $330,000. Since launching his bid for the Kansas second congressional district on August 15th, Davis has raised over $730,000.
“Paul is working hard to build a winning 2018 campaign,” said campaign manager Kerry Gooch. “His momentum continues to grow because Kansans are behind him. Every day, Paul talks to Kansans who are worried about the Brownback-style tax bill that was recently signed into law in Washington. They remember what tax cuts for the rich did to Kansas; local schools closed early, taxes went up on working families, and job growth fell far behind the nation. Kansans are chipping in what they can to elect Paul so he can go to Washington, work with members of both parties and truly fix the tax code so it works for working people.”
The campaign is being fueled by everyday Kansans. Eighty-two percent of the campaign’s contributions are under $100 and over 75 percent of contributors live in Kansas.
This month, both Politico and CNN added Davis to their “top 10 must-watch” lists for 2018, noting Davis’ competitiveness in a state that President Donald Trump carried with 56 percent of the vote. When Davis ran for Kansas governor in 2014, he carried KS-02 by six points.
The campaign’s fourth quarter fundraising report can be viewed publicly on the Federal Elections Commission website after January 15th.
