Rick Minor Outraises Incumbent in State House District 9 Race. Minor takes in $32K during campaign’s first fundraising quarter

From the Minor campaign:

In his first fundraising report since announcing his candidacy for State House District 9, Rick Minor took in $32,576 with 200 individual donors contributing to his campaign.

“The fundraising success of my campaign is a strong sign that voters want a legislator who reflects their principles and who will fight for the issues they care about. The fact that we outraised the incumbent during the hardest time of the year for fundraising just reinforces that,” said Minor.

During the third quarter fundraising period, Minor posted monetary contributions of $21,050 plus in-kind donations of $1,526. Minor also made a $10,000 personal loan to his campaign. “Many of my supporters are struggling in this economy, yet they’re donating as much as they can afford. I have made a personal commitment to show them that I’m in this race to win,” said Minor.

“Rick Minor’s campaign has attracted the support of many people involved in last year’s presidential election,” said Justin Ford, Minor’s campaign manager who worked for President Obama’s campaign last year. “The overwhelming support we’re seeing is a result of people not getting the change here locally that they worked hard for last November.”
