Hawley’s Advantage: Small Dollar Donors Comprise 90 percent of Report
In the third quarter of 2015, the first quarter of Josh Hawley’s campaign for Attorney General, the campaign raised $753,081.30. This haul set a new first-quarter record for declared candidates in a down-ballot race in Missouri. Hawley surpassed the record previously set by Brad Lager in his 2012 race for Lt. Governor. Lager raised $733,271.44 in his first quarter in that race.
Hawley’s campaign report proves he has the momentum in this race, gaining wide appeal across Missouri. Over sixty percent of Hawley’s donors are from Missouri. The vast majority of Hawley’s contributions are small dollar donations, which shows strength in number of supporters and opportunities for repeat giving. Nearly ninety percent of Hawley’s donors gave less than $5,000 and over half gave less than $500.
The Josh Hawley campaign for Missouri Attorney General ends the quarter with $717,975.11 cash on hand.
