She is a strong advocate for education, rural interests in Arizona, environmental concerns, and will be a strong opponent to special interests and big money.
FLAGSTAFF – The Kirkpatrick For Arizona campaign today unveiled its strongest fundraising haul to date with $420,000 raised in the 2nd quarter, giving Congresswoman Kirkpatrick $1.3 million in cash on hand. This brings the total amount raised this cycle to $1,910,000, which includes 9,137 individual donors.
“Folks know Ann has a strong record of results for the people of the First Congressional District — that’s why she has vastly outraised all three of her opponents so far,” said Kirkpatrick For Arizona Campaign Manager Nettie Silleck. “Her tireless efforts continue to bring real solutions to veterans, small business owners, tribal areas and all communities throughout her large, mostly rural district. Contrast those results with Ann’s opponents — who continue to be embroiled in a bitter race to the far right — and it’s clear that the congresswoman is in a strong position to win in November.”
Kirkpatrick’s campaign will use these funds to continue building a vast field program as well as fight back against the Koch brothers and out-of-state dark money groups that have already spent or reserved millions of dollars in negative advertising this cycle.
