Rep. Katie Hill raises over $560,000 in first fundraising quarterBrianna Bricker April 3, 2019 2 Comments
Following the first fundraising deadline of the 2020 election cycle, Rep. Katie Hill’s (D-Ague Dulce) campaign announced that she raised more than $560,000 during the quarter.
The campaign claims that more than 82 percent of Hill’s fundraising came directly from individual donors, with more than 6,200 individual contributions.
“To start the 2020 campaign so strongly, with so much support from the people who helped build this movement, is simply incredible,” Hill said. “Being this community’s voice in Washington is a responsibility I take very seriously, and to know I continue to have their strong support is humbling. I am so grateful for their confidence.”
Hill’s first campaign raised $7,654,693 and, following the Nov. 6 election, ended the 2018 cycle with $64,582 left in the committee’s account.
“We are starting this campaign strong because people feel like they are finally being heard,” Hill said. “This community deserves results on issues like housing they can afford, quality health care and a government they can trust. I am honored to have the opportunity to fight for those priorities every single day on behalf of our community.”
Hill currently has two Republican challengers: Charles M. Patron, who filed to challenge the Democratic representative on March 5, and local Republican campaign strategist Suzette Valladares, who has yet to officially open a campaign committee but announced her intent to challenge Hill on April 2.
