Today, Sen. Jennifer McClellan’s gubernatorial campaign announced that it has raised more than $1.17 million across all entities during 2020, buoyed by growing grassroots support.
With support across the Commonwealth, McClellan tripled her number of donors since the first filing period in July. Nearly 90% of donations came from within Virginia.
McClellan filed her campaign finance report for the second half of 2020 on Friday afternoon. The campaign announced $640,000 raised across all entities in the second half of 2020, an increase from the $467,000 raised across all entities in the first half of 2020.
With support across the Commonwealth, McClellan tripled her number of donors since the first filing period in July. Nearly 90% of donations came from within Virginia. McClellan also has nearly 100 endorsements from across Virginia.
Also, Friday, a new poll from Mason-Dixon Polling and Strategy showed McClellan with high net favorability. “Among the other Democrats, Jennifer McClellan may be the most serious contender for McAuliffe,” Mason-Dixon wrote.
“Senator McClellan’s grassroots campaign has grown support from a broad and diverse coalition of donors and Party activists from every corner of the Commonwealth – giving us strong momentum heading into the next stretch of the campaign,” said McClellan campaign manager Rachel Perry. “Senator McClellan has been fighting for Virginians and delivering progressive results for over a decade and continues to do so as a member in the General Assembly. From protecting Virginia women by successfully blocking a barrage of anti-abortion bills in a Republican-led General Assembly, to leading the current effort to make Virginia the 1st state in the South the end the ban on abortion coverage for healthcare plans sold through the health benefits exchange to championing the passage of the most sweeping and progressive clean energy bill in Virginia’s history, Jenn McClellan has led the way for decades in the tough fight for progress in Virginia. That’s why she’s the leader Virginia needs in order to recover from this unprecedented crisis and build a stronger Virginia.”
