Paccione Campaign Breaks $1 Million Mark

Congressman John Salazar congratulates Angie Paccione on her record fundraising.

FORT COLLINS—State Rep. Angie Paccione today broke the $1 million mark for fundraising in her campaign for Congress, an all-time record for a challenger in Colorado’s Fourth Congressional District.

The fundraising data reveal that her campaign is one of the healthiest grassroots campaigns in America, with more than 7,000 individual contributions, and with the average contribution totaling $140. More than 91 percent of contributions came from Colorado. Eighty-three percent of contributions were for $100 or less.

“We’ve reached a new level in our campaign, thanks to the people of the Fourth,” Paccione said. “They want someone who will stand up to the special interests and speak for the people, and I am that someone.”

Rep. John Salazar, who represents the neighboring Third Congressional District, congratulated Paccione on the milestone.

“This just goes to show how dynamic Angie’s campaign is, and this race has become one of the most competitive races in the nation,” Salazar said. “The people of Colorado are hungry for change. Angie Paccione has been a good friend to me and a good friend to her community for many years, and she will provide the leadership this district needs.”
