Udall Reports Strong Fundraising Thru September

Congressman Tom Udall’s campaign for United States Senate today filed a finance report showing he raised almost $1.8 million from July 1 through September 30 and entered the final month of the campaign with nearly $2 million cash-on-hand. Udall, who has consistently raised more contributions than his opponent, garnered 75 percent of his contributions, or 6,255 individual donations, in amounts of $100 or less.

“Tom Udall’s commitment to always do what’s right for New Mexico and our nation resonates strongly throughout our state thanks to his broad base of supporters,” said Udall Campaign Manager Amanda Cooper. “Their consistent and generous support has ensured that Tom Udall will finish this campaign strongly and continue fighting to make our economy work for the middle class again, to create new, renewable energy jobs of the future here at home and take care of our veterans when they come home.”

Throughout the campaign, Udall has maintained a steady effort to win supporters in every region of New Mexico. He has held a strong statewide advertising presence, already rotating 13 TV ads and debuting 15 regionally focused radio ads today. Udall has helped open over 11 offices statewide where volunteers and supporters invest countless hours, including going door-to-door on his behalf.

"At a time when our nation faces very significant challenges during a period of great economic uncertainty, Tom Udall has the judgment and integrity to do what’s right for the people of New Mexico. In the Senate, we can count on Tom to always stand up for our best interests,” concluded Cooper.

In previous reporting periods during the primary election, Udall outraised both of his potential GOP opponents combined and has outraised his opponent, Steve Pearce in the general election contest.
