According to the Novick for Senate campaign, in the 48 days since his announcement, the campaign has now raised over $100,000 from 300+ donors. At this moment, 253 of those donations for $56,797 have come via ActBlue.
Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Steve Novick announced today that he has raised over $100,000 for his campaign, all from individuals. "Over 300 good, generous, progressive individuals, who are committed to electing a Senator who will fight runaway economic inequality, work hard for universal health care, fight global warming, and work to get the Federal budget back into shape," Novick added.
Although recognizing that the ultimate cost of a Senate campaign will be in the millions, Novick said that the early success demonstrates that "in the words of the Talking Heads, this ain't no party, this ain't no disco, this ain't no foolin' around."
Treasurer Nik Blosser said that "our contributions don't just come from Portland and Eugene; they've come from all over the state. From Turner and Tualatin, from Pendleton and Philomath, from Ashland and Albany, from Medford and Mosier, from Eagle Point, from both Bend AND Redmond, from Corvallis, from The Dalles, from Baker, from Scappoose, from Hood River, and from places in between.
"And Americans all over the country know that this is a national race: control of the Senate hangs in the balance," Blosser added. "That's why we have donors from New York, from Los Angeles, from Seattle, from Washington, from Pittsburgh, from Montana, from Michigan, from Texas, from Massachusetts, and from New Jersey. This is a statewide campaign. This is a national campaign. This is a winning campaign."
Meanwhile, Steve picked up a rather odd endorsement from John Hodgman -- that guy who plays "PC Guy" in the Apple commercials.
