UPDATE: Total Buzz also has it up!
â€œWeâ€™re really building momentum by talking about the issues and values that people across the district share. Our communities want a member of Congress who will fight for better education and healthcare for our children, who will fight to make sure our veterans have the healthcare and benefits they deserve and who will fight to end our dependence on fossil fuels.â€ – Debbie Cook
Hot off the presses! Huntington Beach Mayor Debbie Cook’s second quarter fundraising was stellar. And in fact, she did so well that she has apparently outraised Rohrabacher by some $14,000! From the information being released by the campaign, it looks like Cook raisedÂ nearly $93,000 in the last quarter. And overall, she’s raised over $157,000 with nearly $100,000 cash on hand.
And you know what’s most awesome about this?Â 98% of Debbie Cook’s moneyÂ has come from Â individual donors. You know, that means that there’s a whole lot of grassroots support forÂ Debbie Cook in this district!Â Also,Â 70% of the donations came from local contributors.Â This provesÂ Cook’s strong ties to her community, and that they support the work she’s done to protect beaches & wetlands, and to improve the overall quality of life in the region.
â€œI want to thank all our friends for their generous support — from Costa Mesa to the Palos Verdes Peninsula. This is going to be a tough race, but there is obviously a groundswell for change in this district.â€ – Debbie Cook
Well, it looks like we’re making her job easier. Good.Â And hey, it’s not too late for us to donate now and make sure Debbie gets a great head start on the third quarter! 🙂
