Democrat Brad Schneider Announces Strong Quarterly Fundraising Numbers
Schneider raises an impressive $625,000 in his first quarter as a declared candidate
Deerfield, IL – Today, Democrat Brad Schneider filed his June Quarterly Report1 with the Federal Election Commission. Schneider raised $625,000 from almost 8,000 donors, with an average contribution size of under $65 and a median contribution of just $5.
“I am incredibly grateful to have received such a warm response from so many supporters who agree that Washington is broken and holding us back—holding back our economy, holding back on tough decisions, and holding back on doing what it takes to help people get ahead,” said Schneider. “I look forward to returning to Washington to get to work on the issues that matter.”
Schneider is focused on strengthening the middle class, rebuilding a vibrant economy and breaking through the partisan gridlock to help move our country forward. Through his work on the House Committee on Small Business, Brad has helped create jobs in Illinois and across the nation. And while on the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, Brad advocated for sensible, engaged foreign policy, including a strong U.S.-Israel relationship.
In addition to the impressive fundraising last quarter, Schneider has earned a substantial number of important endorsements from leaders throughout the 10th district, as well as at the state level and nationally. Among these endorsers are state senators, state reps, a county board president, 6 mayors, and a township supervisor. Also, former U.S. Senator Adlai Stevenson III and former Congressman Abner Mikva (IL-10), Congresswomen Robin Kelly (IL-2), Tammy Duckworth (IL-8), Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky (IL-9) and Cheri Bustos (IL-17), as well as Congressmen Dan Lipinski (IL-3), Mike Quigley (IL-5), Danny Davis (IL-7) and Bill Foster (IL-11) are with Schneider. Furthermore, the DCCC has made a singular exception to its rule of not endorsing in a primary and is throwing their full support behind the Schneider campaign.
