Sun Community News - CONGRESSIONAL CANDIDATES FILE Q1 FUNDRAISING REPORTS
From the article:
Nelson has made ridding politics of corporate money a campaign centerpiece.
"The amount we raised shows how truly grassroots we are,” said Thearse McCalmon, Nelson’s campaign manager. “Those are some hard-earned dollar amounts. We can confidently say we are the People's Campaign thanks to our average contribution amount of $32.”
She continued: “We can boldly go into the next phase of our campaign with our heads held high knowing that our donors and volunteers believe that Patrick is the true progressive in this race.”
McCalmon said the campaign expects to bolster their fundraising and volunteer operations ahead of the June 26 primary thanks to recent endorsements from the progressive groups New York Progressive Action Network and North Country Our Revolution.
