The Perriello campaign announced on Friday its year-end FEC filing will reflect $1,140,470 raised for the 2010 election cycle, with $874,128 cash on hand for the election year.

The campaign starts this election year in this strong position by running an aggressive, grassroots donor program, raising money from 2,118 individual donors this cycle, 77 percent of whom are small donors (under $200). That is nearly five times as many individual donors as have given to all the Republican candidates in the field combined.

“Our strategy of grassroots, people-powered politics continues to excite and inspire people, with nearly five times the number of individual donors as all the Republican candidates combined and zero dollars from lobbyists,” said Anna Scholl, finance director for the Perriello campaign. “Virginians know that Congressman Perriello is looking out for their interests, not the special interests of lobbyists, big banks, and oil companies.”

The campaign will report $308,725 raised in the fourth quarter of 2009, the strongest quarter of this cycle, with the majority of donors coming from the Fifth District.
