SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO, CA – Mike Levin, an environmental attorney, clean energy advocate, and longtime grassroots progressive champion, has demonstrated continued strong fundraising capacity, raising a healthy $300,874 from 7/1/17 to 9/30/17. This brings Levin’s total to $918,919 since his campaign was announced on 3/8/17.
“Mike Levin has demonstrated phenomenal grassroots support,” said Levin’s consultant, Parke Skelton. “That he could raise over $918,000 in seven months shows that he’s the candidate who has what it takes to finally defeat Darrell Issa.”
“I’m incredibly grateful to all of our supporters.” Levin said. “Our early fundraising success has allowed us to make strategic investments and build infrastructure that will pay dividends next year. Ours is the campaign that will defeat Darrell Issa, once and for all.”
California’s 49th Congressional District stretches across North County San Diego and Southern Orange County and has been represented by Darrell Issa since 2001. Earlier this year, The New York Times called Issa “the nation’s most vulnerable incumbent.”
Levin has been endorsed by the National Organization for Women (NOW), Congressmembers Adam Schiff and Jimmy Gomez; California State Controller Betty Yee, Dana Point Mayor Debra Lewis, San Diego City Councilmember Barbara Bry, and Encinitas City Councilmember Tasha Boerner Horvath, among many others.
