Stacey Abrams’ Massive $9.2 Million Haul Crushes Brian Kemp’s Fundraising in One-Third of the Time
In a show of major grassroots strength backed by more than 100,000 donors, Stacey Abrams “raised more than $9.2 million since entering the race for governor in December, setting a blistering fundraising pace that eclipsed Republican Gov. Brian Kemp,” the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported this morning.
Just like every other part of the nasty Republican primary, Kemp and David Perdue have attacked each other over fundraising. Perdue’s campaign filed a lawsuit against Kemp, saying he’s violating the U.S. Constitution, while Kemp fired back with an ethics complaint calling for a “full investigation” of Perdue’s fundraising practices.
DGA Deputy Communications Director Sam Newton said: “While Brian Kemp and David Perdue tear each other apart and divide their base, Stacey Abrams is building a unified coalition of Georgians. Abrams is rising above the bickering to deliver a bold vision that delivers for everyday working families.”
