Governor Paul LePage already has as many individual donors in the first few months of his new campaign than he had in his entire last, successful campaign
AUGUSTA, ME – Governor Paul LePage’s campaign committee will post strong fundraising numbers today demonstrating a 2022 campaign that is not only on solid footing, but building the infrastructure needed to win this fall.
The Committee will report raising nearly $900,000 between July 1 and December 31 and ending the 2021 year with over $600,000 cash-on-hand.
– The LePage campaign raised its nearly $900,000 total in less than 200 days, starting from ground zero.
– Governor LePage’s nearly 3,000 individual donors in just his first six months equals his entire individual donor total for his last, successful campaign.
– The campaign has received donations to date from people living in over 400 of Maine’s cities and towns.
– The campaign has more cash-on-hand at this point than in either of his last, successful campaigns.
– LePage raised significantly more money in his first six months in the race than Mills did in her first six months.
– Mills has been fundraising for over 900 days to reach her totals (since filing on June 25, 2019), LePage less than 200.
LePage’s strong donor numbers come after his successful official Launch, likely the largest such event in Maine history, which saw nearly 2,000 people travel to Augusta last September to help kick-off his campaign.
While Governor LePage won his 2010 and 2014 being outspent by his opponents, the campaign committee will continue raising money and building a strong campaign to compete and win.
