Gallego Raises more than $272,000 this Quarter and Nearly $435,000 for the Cycle – Has more than $300,000 cash on hand
PHOENIX, AZ — Ruben Gallego announced today that he raised more than $272,000 for the second quarter and has more than $300,000 cash on hand going into the final two months of the campaign.
In total, the campaign has raised nearly $435,000 from almost 1,500 donors.
“We have built a grassroots army that will not only help our campaign, but will boost turnout for Democrats statewide. We can win this election and help flip the state for Democrats — but first we needed the resources to do it”
“This report shows we can do that — and I’m incredibly thankful to everyone who has contributed to this campaign.”
Gallego, a former state Representative and Marine Corps combat veteran, is vying for the Congressional seat in Arizona’s seventh district.
The Gallego campaign has continued to demonstrate its strength and momentum with major endorsements from Planned Parenthood, Rep. Raúl Grijalva and former Rep. Harry Mitchell, unions such as the AFL-CIO, SEIU, UFCW, and the Teamsters, public safety associations such as the Arizona Highway Patrol Association and Professional Firefighters of Arizona, and civil rights leader Dolores Huerta.
