California 49th Democratic Congressional candidate Mike Levin has raised more than $2.2 million in the three months between 7/1/18 and 9/30/18. This extraordinary fundraising quarter was supported by tens of thousands of grassroots contributions. Levin enters the final month of the campaign with over $1.4 million cash on hand.
Levin, who advanced to the November runoff in CA-49 against Republican Diane Harkey, has now raised over $4.8 million for his campaign and has accumulated more than 150,000 mostly small individual donors. He has built his campaign with no corporate PAC contributions.
“I am incredibly grateful for the overwhelming grassroots support from concerned Americans who are stepping up to help flip the 49th and return common sense governance to the United States Congress,” stated Mike Levin. “The outpouring of support is truly breathtaking. The level of activism and involvement in not only my campaign but in critical swing districts across the nation renews my faith in American values and our common resolve.”
Levin’s successful primary campaign was powered by grassroots activism. In addition to his massive small donor base, Levin has assembled an impressive army of in-district volunteers who are scouring the precincts of CA-49.
“We have built the campaign to win,” said Levin’s consultant Parke Skelton. “This critical contest will go to the team that can harness enthusiasm to identify and turn out voters. No one will out-work Mike Levin.”
The 49th District, including portions of northern San Diego and southern Orange counties, is universally regarded as one of the most competitive in the nation. Levin was recently endorsed by President Barack Obama and by The San Diego Union-Tribune, who called Levin “the clear and easy choice.”
