New filings released by the Federal Election Commission show that Rep. Katie Hill (D-Agua Dulce) raised over $600,000 during the first quarter of the 2020 election cycle.
According to official reports, the 25th Congressional District’s incumbent representative brought in $605,418.29 to her 2020 committee, exceeding the $560,000 estimate her campaign previously claimed to have raised. After deducting operating costs, Hill’s campaign now has $590,211.92 in its account.
“I am so honored to serve this community every single day, and our strong showing my first quarter in office — especially the number of individuals who contributed — is a testament to the energy and support on the ground,” Hill said. “Our community can accomplish anything if we work together, and I am grateful for the opportunity to fight for our priorities in Washington.”
As a prominent National Republican Congressional Committee target, Hill raised almost as much as Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-San Francisco) during the first fundraising quarter, falling short of Pelosi by less than $50,000. Out of the NRCC targets in California, Hill’s fundraising total for the quarter was surpassed only by Rep. Josh Harder (D-Turlock), who raised $873,884.
Filings from Hill’s three challengers — Suzette Martinez Valladares, Mike Garcia and Michael Patron — are currently unavailable, as all three announced their intention to run during the last few weeks of the quarter.
