From Dan Debicella:
Debicella Raises $800,000 in 12 Weeks
Total Fundraising Tops $1.5 million
Norwalk, CT – Dan Debicella, Republican candidate for Congress in Fairfield County, today announced he has raised over $800,000 in the third quarter, bringing the campaign’s total fundraising to $1,500,000 with over $400,000 on hand to communicate with voters in the critical weeks leading up to Election Day.
“Dan’s performance this quarter ensures the campaign will have the necessary resources to continue our robust voter contact programs and advertising through television and direct mail, ultimately leading the campaign to victory on November 2nd,” said Debicella spokeswoman Ashley Maagero.
“The momentum behind the campaign is undeniable: over 98 percent of our contributions come from nearly 2500 individuals, and 82 percent of our donors live right here in Fairfield County – a clear signal that Dan’s proposals are resonating with voters. From replacing the unspent stimulus funds with a payroll tax cut, permanently extending all of the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts to creating a federal spending cap to eliminate our deficits, Fairfield County is ready for Dan’s leadership.”
Debicella’s Q3 fundraising topped that of Jim Himes and Chris Shays’ from the same period in 2008 as they raised $790,143 and $778,838, respectively.
