West Hartford resident Jonathan Harris has raised more than $88,000 in the first fundraising quarter since his campaign for governor began, with 100 percent of the funds qualifying for the Citizen’s Election Program (CEP) grant.
Jonathan A. Harris announced Monday that in the first fundraising quarter since launching his campaign, 100 percent of his contributions were $100 or less, making them eligible to count towards the Citizen’s Election Program (CEP) grant.
In just 73 days, Harris raised more than $88,000 in increments of $100 or less from more than 1,100 unique donors – including more than 1,000 from Connecticut.
“Our success from day one is a reflection of the broad grassroots support throughout the state, from small towns to big cities across Connecticut,” said Harris. “I look forward to talking with more friends and neighbors in communities throughout the state in the coming months.”
Harris, a former West Hartford mayor, state senator and commissioner of Consumer Protection, launched his campaign for statewide office, with a focus on a potential candidacy for governor, on April 19. Initial contributors live in more than 100 different communities and virtually every State Senate district across the state, reflecting the breadth of early support for Harris’ candidacy.
“I’m incredibly grateful to every individual and every family that has taken the time to talk with me about our shared vision for the future of our state, and decided to invest in my campaign,” Harris added. “I’m confident that we can achieve practical solutions to the challenges that confront us, and that Connecticut’s best days are ahead of us.”
The period closed on June 30; the report of contributions is due, and is being filed, Monday. More information about Jonathan Harris and the campaign is at www.harrisforct.com.
