BURLINGTON, Vt. – U.S. Rep. Peter Welch’s campaign for Senate closed the books at the end of the March 31 reporting period with over $2.9 million cash on hand according to a report filed Friday with the Federal Election Commission (FEC).
The campaign received more than 2,480 contributions — including donations from all 14 Vermont counties, 47 states, and Washington D.C. — and raised $839,375 in the first quarter of the year. The most frequent online donation amount was $5.
The report is just the latest sign of momentum for Welch’s campaign. This quarter, Welch received endorsements from NARAL, Council for a Liveable World, The League of Conservation Voters, The United Food and Commercial Workers, Planned Parenthood Action Fund, The International Association of Fire Fighters, The Communications Workers of America, Progressive Turnout Project, The Brady Campaign, and Save Democracy PAC.
“Whether it’s fighting to lower prescription drug prices or working to ensure families aren’t suffering the consequences of price-gouging at the pumps, Peter’s commitment to putting working families first is what’s driving the enthusiasm and support our campaign has received,” said Campaign Manager Ryan McLaren. “Peter knows he can’t do this alone — this is an all-hands-on-deck moment — and we’re so grateful for the people who are stepping up to join us in our effort. We’ll continue listening to Vermonters across the state, and continue working hard to earn their trust and their vote.”
