PRESS RELEASE: 2nd DISTRICT DEMOCRATIC CONGRESSIONAL CANDIDATE MEL HALL RAISES NEARLY $500,000 IN HIS FIRST FUNDRAISING QUARTER

2nd DISTRICT DEMOCRATIC CONGRESSIONAL CANDIDATE MEL HALL RAISES NEARLY $500,000 IN HIS FIRST FUNDRAISING QUARTER 

Halls fundraising announcement follows the release of the first paid digital ad of the 2018 campaign and the start of his regional launch tour.

 

SOUTH BEND, Ind. – Second District Democratic Candidate Mel Hall announced today that he raised over $490,000 during his first fundraising quarter as a candidate. The campaign received more than 400 individual contributions, did not accept PAC money, and will begin 2018 with $430,000 cash on hand. Hall entered the race on October 10, 2017.

“We’re off to a great start,” said Hall spokesman Max Harris. “This level of enthusiasm for a Democratic challenger in the 2nd District is unprecedented. Hoosier voters are tired of a Republican Congress that would rather give tax cuts to corporations and kick people off health care than create good-paying jobs and fight for the middle class.”

Hall’s strong quarter is evidence of growing momentum for change in Indiana’s 2nd Congressional District. Hoosier voters are responding to Hall’s experience creating good-paying jobs, his push for accountable representation, and his plans to protect Hoosiers’ health care. Hall finished the year with multiple stops in all ten counties of the 2nd District and begins his 2018 regional launch tour with events in Goshen, La Porte, and Knox this month.

Hall’s first digital video can be found here.
