CINDY AXNE FOR CONGRESS RAISES $2.5 MILLION IN THE THIRD QUARTER
Des Moines, IA – Today, the Cindy Axne for Congress campaign announced another record-breaking fundraising quarter. The Axne campaign raised $2.5 million in the third quarter of 2018, five times more than Republican incumbent Congressman David Young. More than 80 percent of all third quarter contributions were donations of $50 or less.
“Cindy has received a record-breaking amount of support, without taking a penny from corporate PACs. In Congress, Cindy will represent the voices of everyday Iowans, not corporations and special interests,” said Madeleine Russak, spokesperson for Cindy Axne. “Across the third district and the entire state, voters are fed up with Washington dysfunction and partisan politics. Iowans are throwing their support behind a candidate they know will take on the tough fights in Washington to deliver results for hard-working families.”
