Carolyn Long raised more than $100,000 in the first morning of her congressional campaign, her team announced Tuesday.
After announcing her campaign Monday morning in Centralia — a rematch with Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler, R-Battle Ground — Long brought in more than $100,000 “in the first six hours of campaigning.”
“I didn’t spend my day calling Corporate PACs for special interest money because I’m not accepting their donations,” Long said in a statement. “I met with hundreds of voters today in multiple town hall events across the district and this financial support is just one part of the grassroots movement that will propel this campaign to victory.”
Long has pledged not to accept contributions from corporate political action committees.
According to reports filed with the Federal Election Commission, Long had just more than $11,000 in the bank at the end of the first quarter of 2019, while Herrera Beutler had stockpiled $262,000.
