Contributions come from 131 counties and cities in Virginia, plus 39 other states around the country
FALLS CHURCH, VA – Political outsider, successful business leader, and Republican nominee for governor Glenn Youngkin today announced that his campaign raised a record-setting $15.9 million since he launched his candidacy on January 27.
Youngkin’s fundraising total is more than any Virginia Republican running for governor has ever raised at this point in the race. The haul was thanks in part to the generosity of more than 3,400 contributors representing 131 counties and cities in Virginia, plus supporters in 39 other states across America.
“I’m so thankful for everyone – Republicans, Democrats, independents – for investing in our movement to bring a new day to Virginia,” said Youngkin. “Unlike Terry McAuliffe, I’m a political outsider and real business leader. Our campaign has received an outpouring of support from people in Virginia and across the country because they understand the opportunity we have this year to rebuild our Commonwealth, reignite our economy, restore excellence in education, and reestablish our commitment to public safety.”
As of May 27, Youngkin’s campaign had more than $4.3 million cash on hand after it took in more in April and May than it did in February and March.
In March, 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.
