Tim Kaine Senate campaign raises $2.2 million in second quarter

Tim KaineThe Tim Kaine Senate campaign raised more than $2.2 million in the second quarter of 2018, bringing the total amount raised this cycle to more than $18.2 million.

This period, 61 percent of Kaine’s donors were from the Commonwealth of Virginia, and he brought in more than $700,463 online through a total of 16,539 individual online contributions. In the first 72 hours after the Republican primary alone, Kaine raised more than $100,000 online from nearly 2,500 individual contributions. The average online contribution this quarter was $42.

The Kaine campaign has also made a $5 million expenditure for television ad reservations for the fall campaign. This is an efficient, upfront investment in the campaign’s aggressive plan to convey Kaine’s message of creating a Virginia that works for all – with good jobs, health care, and education available to every Virginian – statewide. The campaign has more than $6 million on hand.

Kaine has spent the spring building a strong foundation for success in the general election – he has invested in a statewide field effort in all 11 congressional districts, with more than 20 offices and 50 organizers in place across Virginia. He has also spent time in every corner of the Commonwealth building grassroots support for his campaign, including more than 25 stops over the Fourth of July holiday week alone.
