Field-leading total propelled by contributions from 117 counties and cities across Virginia
FALLS CHURCH, VA – Conservative Republican business leader and candidate for Virginia governor Glenn Youngkin today announced that his campaign raised $7.5 million since he launched his candidacy on January 27.
Youngkin’s fundraising total leads the Republican field thanks to the generosity of more than 1,140 contributors representing 117 counties and cities in Virginia, plus supporters in 24 other states across America.
“The grassroots support we’ve seen for our campaign since we launched in late January is amazing, and I’m so thankful for everyone who has invested in our mission to end the McAuliffe-Northam administration and bring a new day to Virginia,” said Youngkin. “People across America recognize that what happens in Virginia this year can also determine a new direction for our country, and they understand that I am the only true conservative outsider and business leader in this race who can win in November. With this broad base of financial support, there is no question that our campaign is the best equipped to take on the McAuliffe political machine and put a Republican in the governor’s office for the first time in more than a decade. I can’t wait to build on our incredible momentum, unite our party, and take on the career politicians who have failed Virginians for too long. Virginia families and workers deserve better, and we’re going to deliver real results and a government that works for them.”
Youngkin previously announced that his campaign raised more than $1 million from supporters in the first 10 days.
Last month, Glenn and Suzanne Youngkin established Virginia Wins PAC. So far, they have personally contributed more than $400,000 to support Republican candidates and restore and renew conservative leadership in the Commonwealth.
