Brown's Fundraising Looks Good
On the day that Ohio's AFL-CIO endorsed Sherrod Brown for Senate, Brown's campaign committee reported strong fundraising totals for the final quarter of 2005. Brown's campaign raised $496,882.25, bring their cash-on-hand to $2.37 million.
"We're extremely confident about our numbers," said Ben Wikler, Brown's campaign press secretary. "The fact that 79% of our donors are individuals from Ohio speaks to the overwhelming in-state support for Sherrod."
Earlier this month, Brown was endorsed by the Ohio Communications Workers of America, the Ohio Building Trades Council, and the Ohio Federation of Teachers.
"Sherrod's focus has been on talking with Ohioans about the issues that affect their everyday lives, and his plans to bring about change in Ohio," Wikler said. "Today's fundraising numbers show that Sherrod's message resonates with working men and women throughout the state."
