Today, Nevada Rep. Jacky Rosen’s campaign for U.S. Senate announced strong fundraising totals for the final three months of 2017. Rosen’s campaign will report raising $1.56 million for the fourth quarter period covering October through December, with $1.8 million on hand at the end of the quarter. Rosen’s Senate campaign received more than 43,000 contributions in 2017, and 95 percent of contributions were $100 or less. The campaign’s average contribution last year was $63.
Rosen is running to replace Republican Sen. Dean Heller, the most vulnerable GOP senator facing re-election this year. Since Rosen entered the race, Nevada’s Senate seat has been widely viewed as the most likely to flip parties in 2018. Rosen’s fourth quarter haul is higher than any of Heller’s previously reported fundraising quarters so far this cycle.
“We continue to be amazed by the outpouring of grassroots support for our campaign, and our strong fundraising is a testament to the fact that Nevadans are ready to send Jacky Rosen to the Senate,” said Rosen for Nevada campaign manager Danny Kazin. “While Sen. Heller tries to defend his votes for a toxic health care agenda and an unpopular tax scam, Jacky Rosen is a problem-solver who will stand her ground and always put Nevada families first. Our fundraising success allows us to make critical early investments and have the resources to win this race in November.”
