Cooper for North Carolina Reports Nearly $4 Million Raised in Second Half of 2019; Over $8.2 Million Cash-On-Hand
Report Indicates Grassroots Support From All 100 Counties
RALEIGH – Cooper for North Carolina released the following statement today announcing it raised nearly $4 million in the second half of 2019, which puts the campaign at more than $8.2 million in cash-on-hand. In 2019, Cooper for North Carolina raised $8.5 million, the most any candidate for governor in the state has raised in the year before the election.
Closer look at where we’re at heading into 2020:
- 90% of our donors are from North Carolina;
- More than three-quarters of our contributions were $100 or less;
- Contributors from all 100 counties.
Liz Doherty, communications director for Cooper for North Carolina, said, “With more than three-quarters of our contributions $100 or less, it’s clear North Carolinians are chipping in whatever they can to make sure Governor Cooper is re-elected so he can continue his mission of moving North Carolina forward to a place where people are better educated, healthier, and have more money in their pockets. We’re heading into 2020 well-equipped to communicate with North Carolinians in all 100 of the counties from which we’re lucky to have support.”
