U.S. Rep. Peter Welch’s campaign for Senate finished the end of the September 30 reporting period with over $2.68 million on hand according to a report filed Friday with the Federal Election Commission (FEC).
The campaign received donations from all 14 Vermont counties, 47 states, and Washington D.C. – and successfully raised over $675,000 during the third quarter of the year. More than 90% of all donations were under $100, and the most common donation was $5. The report is just the latest sign of momentum for Rep. Welch’s campaign after August’s primary victory.
The campaign continues to build grassroots support as Rep. Welch meets with Vermonters across the state on his “Welch Wagon” 14 County tour. Recently, Rep. Welch has been endorsed by the Sierra Club, Indivisible, Gun Sense VT, Everytown for Gun Safety Action Fund, the Human Rights Campaign, the Jewish Democratic Council of America, the ERA Coalition, the American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE), and the International Union, United Automobile, Aerospace & Agricultural Implement Workers of America (UAW), adding to the significant and growing number of supporters working to elect Rep. Welch to the Senate.
“It’s energizing to see the excitement Vermonters have for Peter as we enter the final weeks of the campaign. We’re grateful for the enthusiasm in this all-hands-on-deck moment for our country. Vermonters know what’s at stake in this election, and Peter’s commitment to secure our democracy, combat the accelerating climate crisis, lower costs for working families, and protect reproductive freedom is motivating this support. Onward to November,” said Campaign Manager Ryan McLaren.
