Warner Brings Total Raised to More Than $14 Million, Raises $2.7 Million In Second Quarter
ALEXANDRIA – Senator Mark R. Warner’s re-election campaign today announced it raised $2.7 million during the second quarter, ending June 30.
The $2.7 million Sen. Warner’s campaign raised brings the total raised to $14 million. More than 11,400 donors contributed and more than 60% of all contributors gave under $150.
The broad support from grassroots donors has allowed the campaign to make early investments in reaching Virginians through digital and television advertising and a sophisticated data-driven field effort.
This week, the campaign strategically reserved more than $5.5 million in television time across the state during the fall. Matching the effort on the air, organizers are already on the ground in every region of the Commonwealth building neighborhood volunteer teams. The robust field program is laying the groundwork for a highly targeted get-out-the-vote effort in the fall.
“Grassroots support from folks across the Commonwealth has allowed us to make early investments that will pay dividends in the fall,” said Campaign Manager Trey Nix. “We are communicating Senator Warner’s bipartisan approach to reducing the debt and creating good-paying jobs, both on air and door-to-door.”
Sen. Warner, a successful Virginia business leader and entrepreneur, served as Governor of Virginia between 2002-06. During his four-year term as Governor, the Warner Administration attracted nearly 130,000 new jobs to the Commonwealth, and Virginia was honored as the country’s Best Managed State, the Best State for Business, and the Best State for Educational Opportunities.
Elected to the U.S. Senate during the 2008 recession, Sen. Warner had a key role in successfully enacting bipartisan Wall Street reforms. Widely viewed as a consensus-builder in Congress, Sen. Warner has worked for greater fiscal accountability, and he is a bipartisan leader in promoting innovation and greater economic opportunity. Sen. Warner is a champion for Virginia’s small businesses, and a strong advocate for Virginia’s military men and women, our veterans and their families.
