“We need a new level of energy, excitement, and transparency if we’re going to flip this seat,” said Senator Jeff Jackson. “A U.S. Senate campaign that holds open town halls to talk about any issue from health care to climate change to water quality in the Cape Fear River is something our state hasn’t seen in a long time. We’re seeing real momentum behind the movement we’re building, and we’re overwhelmed by the support we’ve received from folks across the state.”In the first quarter of 2021, Jackson raised $1.3 million, the second highest Q1 fundraising in the country among Democratic challengers.

The fundraising totals and contributors will be publicly available when Senator Jackson files his second quarter fundraising report with the FEC by July 15th.
