Cal Cunningham Raises $7.4 Million In Q2, “Breaks NC Fundraising Record”

RALEIGH, NC — Cal Cunningham will report $7.4 million raised in the second quarter of 2020, the most ever raised by a Senate candidate in North Carolina in a single quarter. He will report $6.6 million on hand, and has raised nearly $15 million over the course of the campaign. 

“Our campaign is so grateful to the thousands of North Carolinians lending their support to this campaign, showing that people across the state are ready to elect Cal and put this seat back to work to protect their health care and take on corruption in Washington,” said Devan Barber, Campaign Manager for Cal for NC. “This record-breaking quarter follows poll after poll showing a close race, and the momentum is on our side with less than four months to election day.” 

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Cal has received donations from nearly 29,000 North Carolinians over the course of the cycle, and one-third of those North Carolinians have given more than once. 
  • Over the course of the cycle, 96 percent of Cal’s contributions have been under $100

The record-breaking haul follows several weeks of good coverage and polling in the race: 

  • Several recent public polls show a close race between Cal and Thom Tillis. 
  • While Tillis is “aiming to reintroduce himself to the electorate,” Cal’s first ad of the general election highlights Cal’s Lexington roots and experience as a military prosecutor, and underscores his commitment to fighting corruption and protecting health care in Washington.
  • Cal continues to hold Tillis accountable for his record, including blocking Medicaid expansion and his failure to stand up for North Carolina’s military community following news of Russian bounties for the killing of U.S. troops.
