Perriello passes $2M mark in fundraising in ’10 cycle

Edited by Chris Graham

The Tom Perriello campaign raised more than $660,000 in the second quarter of 2010, bringing its total to date in the 2009-2010 election cycle to $2.3 million.

The numbers released today by the campaign of the Fifth District Democrat also included a line item for $1.7 million in cash on hand.

The fundraising haul is made more impressive by the move of Perriello to reject monies from federal lobbyists and corporate PACs. Ninety-eight percent of the campaign monies contributed to Perriello in the second quarter came from individual donors.

“We are humbled by the outpouring of support from thousands of Virginians who have sent in $10 and $20 donations to support Tom’s re-election bid,” campaign manager Lise Clavel said. “They know that Tom is working the double shift he promised to bring back jobs and economic relief for working families. Our campaign is in the strong position it is today because of the incredible enthusiasm and generosity of Virginians who are excited to have a congressman that fights for them, not the special interests.”
