With over $700,000 on hand, raises more than any other McClintock challenger since his first election
Official Press Release from Morse for Congress Campaign:
Roseville, CA – Today, the Jessica Morse for Congress campaign announced it raised over $350,000 in the first three months of 2018, her best fundraising period yet, and began April with $717,000 on hand. Impressively, Morse has now raised close to $1 million for the campaign thus far – more than any other challenger to McClintock since his first election in 2008, including all other Democrats running in the 4th district this cycle.
Morse received donations from all ten counties in the 4th congressional district. In the previous quarter, she established a cash-on-hand advantage over McClintock and outraised him significantly, $292,000 to $215,000.
"I am honored that so many people from across the district put their trust in me and this campaign to bring much-needed change to Washington," said Morse. "As a fifth-generation Northern Californian, I have deep roots in this community, and pledge to be a fighter for working families here every single day. Residents of the 4th district are already speaking loud and clear: it's time for ineffective, lifelong career politicians like Tom McClintock to go."
Morse's fundraising success comes on the heels of receiving the California Democratic Party's official endorsement at the state convention in February, where she earned 65% of the delegates' votes. Also this quarter, the Cook Political Report – one of the nation’s leading nonpartisan political newsletters – moved the 4th district race out of the "Solid Republican" category, in large part due to the strength of Morse’s campaign, indicating the race has the potential to become highly competitive by November.
