Justus’s Q4 Fundraising Exceeds Total for Entire Field COMBINED
Kansas City, MO – Today the Justus for Mayor campaign announced that it raised $219,029 in the fourth quarter of 2018, putting it far ahead of any other campaign in the field during that same period. In fact, Justus’ fourth quarter total exceeds the total raised by all of the other candidates combined.
“I’m humbled, really, that so many people were willing to invest in our campaign for mayor,” said Justus. “I have such a deep passion for this city and for bringing people together to build on our incredible momentum. What I’m finding is that there are a lot of people in this city who share that same passion and they’re ready to get on board. The result is, we’re building a movement here and it’s really exciting to be a part of it.”
During Q4 of 2018 nearly half (47%) of the money raised by the campaign was from so-called low dollar donors who gave $200 or less. After her successful fundraising quarter, Justus has now raised $407,738 for the election cycle.
