Paccione Has Record Fundraising Quarter 

Overwhelming support from Colorado citizens puts Angie Paccione’s campaign over $1.3 million.

FORT COLLINS—State Rep. Angie Paccione’s campaign for Congress today released its fundraising totals for the past quarter, which show that the campaign has broken the Fourth District record for fundraising in a single quarter—as well as the record for total fundraising for a campaign—by a Democratic challenger.

The campaign will report more than $628,000 in total fundraising for the quarter ending September 30, bringing the total to a record $1.3 million. The breakdown of donations shows a groundswell of grassroots support, with 83 percent of individual contributions coming from Colorado and 85 percent totaling less than $100 each.

“Our momentum just keeps growing,” Paccione said. “The people of Colorado want real leadership in Congress, and they know we’ve got what it takes to win this election.”

DCCC Chair Rahm Emanuel congratulated Paccione on her successful quarter, and he noted that Paccione outraised Musgrave in the quarter ending June 30.

“Angie Paccione has consistently proven that she can keep fundraising pace with Marilyn Musgrave, and her campaign is showing tremendous viability coming into the home stretch,” Emanuel said. “We’re confident that in November the voters will choose Angie Paccione’s record of principled leadership over Marilyn Musgrave’s record of loyalty to the special interests.”
