Charlotte – Candidate for US Senate Jeff Jackson (D) raised more than $1.28 million during the first quarter of 2021. The campaign received contributions from over 14,000 individuals and from 99 counties in North Carolina. The start of Sen. Jackson’s campaign for North Carolina’s open US Senate seat in 2022 is one of the strongest grassroots launches in North Carolina history.
Jackson’s fundraising outpaces Cal Cunningham’s, Deborah Ross’s, and Thom Tillis’s first full quarters as a challenger for the U.S. Senate.
More on Jackson’s Q1 fundraising:
- Over 20,000 contributions
- 90% of donations came from North Carolinians
- 86% of contributions are under $100
- no self-funding
- no contributions from corporate PACs
Since launching his campaign in January of 2021, Senator Jackson has held 16 town halls and visited 10 counties across the state. More than 2,500 people have signed up to volunteer with the campaign.
“As we’re traveling across North Carolina, the energy and enthusiasm behind this campaign has been overwhelming,” said Senator Jackson. “We’re hearing every day about the challenges facing our state, and how the costs of housing, health care, child care, and education keep rising, but wages aren’t keeping up. People are ready for a senator from North Carolina who will stand up for them. I’m honored to build this campaign alongside them.”
The fundraising totals and contributors will be publicly available when Senator Jackson files his first quarter fundraising report with the FEC on April 15th.
