ANGIE PACCIONE RAISES NEARLY $300,000 IN SECOND QUARTER
Ninety percent of funds come from Colorado.
FORT COLLINS—State Rep. Angie Paccione has kicked her campaign for Congress into high gear with approximately $295,000 in the second quarter of this year, bringing her campaign total to approximately $695,000.
“This is a significant step for our campaign,” Paccione said. “We’re right where we need to be.”
The figures reveal strong local grassroots support for the campaign. Ninety percent of donors came from Colorado, and 87 percent of donors gave less than $100 apiece.
Combined with recent polling numbers showing Paccione and Marilyn Musgrave in a virtual tie—and that 51 percent of Colorado’s Fourth District voters want someone new to represent them in Congress, while only 34 percent would re-elect Musgrave—the second-quarter figures signal an invigorating race to come.
“This shows that the people of Colorado are hungry for change, and we’re going to give it to them,” Paccione said. “We’re in it to win it. It’s time for real leadership for a change.”
