Remains Leading Woman in Third District Fundraising
LOWELL, Mass. – Lori Trahan’s campaign announced today that it raised a total of $303,000 for the first quarter of 2018, including $253,000 raised in individual contributions, bringing its total of funds raised so far to more than $854,000. The campaign reports it has $706,000 on hand going into the second quarter.
The April 15 FEC filing reports that 58 percent of Trahan’s donations this past quarter came from within the Third District. This builds on the momentum of unparalleled, in-district support that Trahan has received heading into the Democratic primary on September 4. To date, 55 percent of all of Trahan’s contributions have been raised within the Third District.
“I continue to be humbled by the outpouring of support I’m receiving from the voters of the Third District,” said Trahan. “Our momentum is a testament to the hard work of hundreds of local donors and volunteers who want to send a representative to Washington who is from the district and funded by them rather than by special interests, corporate PACS and donors who have zero understanding or interest in the issues we face here at home.”
To date, Trahan has earned the endorsement of State Rep. Tom Golden, State Rep. Rady Mom, and State Rep. David Nangle, former Methuen Mayor Stephen Zanni, the Local 1714 Marlborough Firefighters, United Food and Commercial Workers Local 791, Local 1839 Chelmsford Firefighters, Local 3126 Westford Firefighters, Local 853 Lowell Firefighters, Teamsters Local 25, and Iron Workers Local 7.
