Former Congressman and Democratic candidate for Governor, Joe Cunningham, on Tuesday announced that he has raised over $1 million since launching his campaign in April. Cunningham has previously broken the record for most money raised by a Democratic gubernatorial challenger in their initial fundraising quarter when he raised $634,000 in the second quarter of this year. Since July, Cunningham has raised an additional $360,000.
Cunningham’s fundraising by the numbers:
- Total raised since campaign launch: $1,000,000+
- Total raised this quarter: $360,000
- Number of contributions: 6,000
- PAC Money: $0
“I continue to be humbled and amazed by the outpouring of grassroots support our campaign has received since we launched in April,” Cunningham said. “South Carolinians are clamoring for change and that is exactly what our campaign represents. Henry McMaster has been in politics longer than I have been alive and our state is worse off now than we have ever been. Thanks to career politicians like Henry McMaster, South Carolina trails nearly every state in the country in education and infrastructure while we continue to lead the nation in the rate of COVID cases. He’s had his chance to solve South Carolina’s challenges and he has failed. We are building a campaign unlike anything South Carolina has ever seen and raising the resources the Democratic nominee will need to defeat Henry McMaster next year and finally lead South Carolina into the future.”
