Anton and Melissa are both new candidates, starting from scratch. Early fundraising is essential for them to build their campaigns, recruit volunteers, and increase their name recognition.
What’s more, both are up against big money Republican incumbents. Melissa’s opponent has raised more than $2 million over the past five elections. Anton’s opponent has raised more than a million during his career. For state races, that’s a huge amount of money.
We’ve raised more than $6,000 so far. Let’s raise $10,000 by Labor Day!
