“ANGELLE ALTERS LANDSCAPE,” LEADS IN FUNDRAISING SINCE ENTERING GOVERNOR’S RACE
Today, Scott Angelle’s campaign announced that since entering the 2015 gubernatorial race in October of last year, he leads in fundraising and has outraised each of his opponents.
“Scott is a prolific fundraiser,” Angelle communications director, Jessica Ragusa said. “Since beginning his campaign last October and giving Louisianians an alternative in the race, Scott has outraised each of his opponents and is rapidly becoming the desired choice, due to a proven record of solving problems across all lines.”
Since entering the race, Angelle has raised $2.1 million in cash contributions.
In the same time period (Oct. 1 - Present) Sen. Vitter has raised $1.9 million, Lt. Gov. Dardenne has raised $800,000 and Rep. Edwards raised $425,000.
Since Jan. 1, 2015, Angelle has raised $622,000 in cash contributions and has $1.2 million cash on hand.
“This early lead in fundraising indicates that Scott’s entrance into the race altered the landscape,” Ryan Cross, Angelle’s campaign manager said. “We’re the only candidate rising in the polls, we’re gaining momentum across the state and we’ve shown that we’ll have the money necessary to be victorious this fall.”
“I am humbled by the enormous outpouring of support from across the state,” Angelle said. “Since beginning this journey almost seven months ago, I’ve met countless hard-working Louisianians who believe, as I do, that our best days are still ahead. I will be a Governor that focuses 100 percent on solving Louisiana’s problems...every time, all the time.”
