Farmington, MAINE – The Janet Mills for Governor campaign reported last night that it raised $797,716 during the July through September fundraising period. The campaign announced today that it has received 13,635 contributions totaling $1,850,322.48 since entering the race in July 2017. Of those contributions, more than 99.9 percent have come from individuals, not corporations or PACs. For this reporting period, the campaign received 2,523 contributions, more than half of which came from first time donors to the campaign who gave an average of $154.
“After eight long years, Maine people are ready for a change, not more of the same – and the enthusiasm reflected in this report demonstrates that they know Janet is the leader who will deliver it,” said Campaign Manager Jeremy Kennedy. “Janet is grateful to have the support of thousands of people across the state, and she will continue to fight hard in the coming month to win this election so we can achieve affordable, accessible health care, a stronger economy, and a world-class public education system. That’s the positive change Maine needs.”
Additionally, over 75 percent of the total money raised has been from Maine. During this reporting period, the campaign received contributions from people in all sixteen Maine counties and has a total of $394,790 cash on hand.
