Democratic candidate for Governor and former House Minority Leader Stacey Abrams reported raising $1.7 million for the second disclosure period, bringing the overall campaign fundraising total to $2.27 million.
The campaign has received 20,895 contributions from 14,880 contributors. Fifty-seven percent of contributors gave $25 or less, and 87 percent of contributors gave $100 or less.
The campaign received grassroots contributions from 248 Georgia cities as well as all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico.
“I am deeply grateful to each supporter who has invested in our campaign for a Georgia where families can succeed, not just survive,” Abrams said in a call with the press. “We are building a new and inclusive campaign — one that is powered by people who are volunteering and contributing what they can to help create a state that lifts up new voices, and pursues bold solutions to the problems our families face.”
Since launching in early June, the Stacey Abrams for Governor campaign has been relentlessly focused on investing in the infrastructure needed to build the broad, new coalition of voters needed to go the distance in May and beyond.
Congressman John Lewis, Congressman David Scott, Congressman Hank Johnson, Vernon Jordan, Rev. Dr. CT Vivian, Francys Johnson, and Rev. Dr. Joseph Lowery have endorsed Abrams candidacy for governor.
