VIRGINIA BEACH – Today, Elaine Luria’s campaign announced that she raised over $930,000 in her second quarter, bringing her total raised for the cycle to over $1.3 million in the first six months.
This total includes no contributions from corporate PACs. Elaine’s campaign is fueled by grassroots support from individuals, with an average Q2 donation of $15 and 99% of donations being $100 or less.
“Grassroots supporters throughout Coastal Virginia are excited that someone like Elaine – a retired Navy Commander and small business owner – is running to represent them in Congress and fight for affordable health care.” said Elaine Luria’s Campaign Manager, Kathryn Sorenson. “Elaine is living her values by rejecting contributions from corporate PACs, and making it clear that her grassroots campaign has the momentum to take on Scott Taylor and win in November.”
Virginia’s 2nd Congressional District was recently moved to a toss-up race by Larry Sabato’s Crystal Ball. Elaine secured the Democratic nomination last month after earning the support of 62% of Democratic primary voters on June 12, and now faces Republican Scott Taylor in the general election.
