Dold Sets Fundraising Record
Winnetka, IL – Today, 10th District Congressional Candidate Robert Dold announced a record fundraising quarter of well over $800,000, more than 70 percent increase from second quarter totals. Dold will file exact numbers with the Federal Election Committee before the October 15 deadline.
This year Dold has raised $513,000 in the first quarter, $578,000 in the second quarter and more than $800,000 in the third quarter.
“These donations reflect the voices of our supporters who are growing in number each day,” said Dold. “You can see the increasing support in many ways: a growing volunteer base, record fundraising and more Facebook friends.”
Dold continued, “More and more people are showing their support for the message that we need to change direction in Washington to cut spending and to foster an environment that will allow small businesses to grow and get people back to work.”
It's too early to chortle yet, since we don't know how third-time Dem nominee Dan Seals fared in fundraising, but suffice it to say that Bob's successful Q3 efforts means that he will be able to compete in this tough race in the notoriously expense Chicago media market leading up to November 2.
