Columbus, GA – Teresa Tomlinson, two-term mayor of Columbus and candidate for U.S. Senate from Georgia, who released her first public filing since officially announcing her campaign on May 1st, will report $520,986 in donations from 3,583 individuals – demonstrating a significant grassroots movement in her effort to unseat David Perdue.
“With thousands of Georgians organizing for and donating to my election for U.S. Senate we are laying the foundation to build a people-powered grassroots campaign across the state to take on David Perdue next November,” said Tomlinson. “This campaign is by Georgians, for Georgians.”
The impressive fundraising haul is the result of 3,583 individual donors from all 50 states. Of the 4,340 donations made, 4,071 (or 93%) were amounts less than $500 and some 76% of all money raised came from Georgia. The campaign spent $195,086 and will report having $353,348 cash-on-hand.
“From Bonaire to College Park, Georgians believe in Mayor Tomlinson’s leadership and this campaign’s ability to send a Democrat from Georgia to the U.S. Senate,” said Nicole Henderson, Tomlinson’s Director of Communication. “Teresa has been all over Georgia talking about pragmatic progressive policies for years, and this grassroots support reflects that. Georgia voters are responding to our message that someone needs to resolve the dysfunction in Washington, D.C. and that person is Teresa Tomlinson.”
The report, which will be made public on the Federal Election Commission (FEC) website today, Monday, July 15th, and covers all monies raised and spent from April 1st through June 30th.
