Gail Schwartz Raises Nearly $623,000 in Kick-Off Quarter

“The people of Colorado are responding to our message of real representation, and they’re clearly willing to show their support.” – Gail Schwartz

Carbondale, CO – Gail Schwartz, candidate for Congress in Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District, continued to demonstrate the strength and momentum of her campaign by raising a very impressive $622,960.02 in contributions. As a testament to the efficiency of her grassroots campaign, Schwartz for Congress has $549,421.46 cash-on-hand. Notably, Colorado residents accounted for roughly 70 percent of the individual contributions in the most recent report.

“I’m humbled and energized by the outpouring of support that we have received from people across Colorado’s 3rd District. Hardworking families are responding to a positive message of protecting our rural way of life, creating good paying jobs, and investing in schools and infrastructure. Ultimately, this is just the beginning and I know that we are going up against deep pocketed, out-of-state special interests – but I’ve never backed away from a challenge and I’m not going to start now,” said Schwartz.

Fundraising is not the only area in which Schwartz is demonstrating strength. She has received a number of key endorsements, including the League of Conservation Voters, EMILY’s List, Colorado AFL-CIO, Colorado Women’s Leadership Circles of Influence, Blue Dog PAC, and the Sierra Club. She is well known in southern and western Colorado, since she has already represented the counties of the 3rd Congressional District as an elected University of Colorado Regent, and went on to represent 12 of the 3rd Congressional District counties as the State Senator from Senate District 5. And as a tireless campaigner, she will be on the road until Election Day to meet as many residents of the District as possible.
