Q4 Report Will Show 73% of Donations from Inside 3rd District; 83% from MA
Today, Lori Trahan’s campaign announced strong fundraising support in 2017, ending the year with more than $550K in contributions.
The campaign’s Jan. 31 FEC filing will show a total of $310K raised in Q4, on top of $240K collected in Q3, and cash-on-hand of more than $500K at year-end.
“I am incredibly grateful and humbled for the support I have received which will enable me to communicate directly with voters over the coming months,” said Trahan. “But more than the dollar amount, what I’m most proud of is the fact that most of my support is coming from the community where I was born and raised, and where I’ve lived all my life.”
Other notable Q4 stats:
- More than half of all donations from the 3rd District
- Nearly 3/4 of total donations from Massachusetts
- 83% of total donors live in Massachusetts
This number now positions Trahan as the female candidate for the 3rd Congressional District with the strongest fundraising numbers for 2017. Trahan has earned endorsements from the Lowell delegation of state Representatives (Rep. Thomas Golden, Rep. David Nangle, Rep. Rady Mom), along with Stephen Zanni, the former Mayor of Methuen, and several labor unions – Boston’s Teamsters Local 25 and the Ironworkers Local 7.
