GROHMAN OUTRAISES OPPONENTS IN LATEST FUNDRAISING REPORT
Independent candidate raises more than both Pingree and Holbrook combined in Pre-Primary Report
BIDDEFORD, MAINE - Independent candidate for Congress Marty Grohman today announced his campaign raised a total of $54,275 for the pre-primary reporting period ending May 23. This is more than both of his opponents raised for the period, combined.
"I'm so pleased with the positive response to my campaign right out of the gate," said Grohman. "We're only just getting started, but already it's clear the people of Maine's First District are hungry for a change in Washington."
The Pre-Primary report tracks fundraising between April 1 and May 23. Grohman's campaign didn't launch until April 9, giving his campaign nine fewer days to raise money than his opponents.
Grohman's total fundraising receipts, including donations from the candidate, were $54,275, compared to Pingree's $17,668 and Holbrook's $6,427. Grohman's contributions from individuals totaled $19,075.
"We've got a long way to go, and high hills to climb," continued Grohman. "We've taken a strong first step, and I look forward to the hard work ahead to take this congressional seat out of the hands of the political parties and back in the hands of the people of Maine."
