Donors Across U.S. Coalesce Behind Lindstrom’s Bid to Unseat Elizabeth Warren
Today, U.S. Senate Candidate Beth Lindstrom reported an impressive haul of $303,000 in campaign contributions for the first quarter of 2018 as she continued to set the fundraising pace for the Republican field vying to unseat Senator Elizabeth Warren.
Lindstrom’s latest numbers build on her success in the final quarter of 2017, her first full quarter as a candidate, when the $408,000 she raised exceeded the amounts reported by her GOP rivals Geoff Diehl and John Kingston by 36% and 52%, respectively.
Taken together, the last two financial quarters demonstrate that Republicans are coalescing behind Lindstrom’s campaign. Lindstrom reported receiving contributions from donors in all 50 states as they increasingly recognize she is the best person to run and win against Senator Warren.
“I’m grateful for the tremendous financial support to my campaign. Voters in Massachusetts and across the country recognize Elizabeth Warren as the divisive figure that she is. The outpouring of financial support from donors in all 50 states has energized and strengthened my campaign. We continue to grow our support each day through financial support and endorsements. We are full steam ahead in achieving our goal of unseating Sen. Warren and giving Massachusetts the representation it deserves,” Lindstrom said.
In 2017, Lindstrom received the endorsement and financial support of three political action committees working to increase the number of Republican women in the U.S. House and Senate — Maggie’s List, View PAC and the Right Now Women’s PAC.
