Caligiuri announces good start to fundraising

State Senator Sam Caligiuri announced today that he raised over $100,000 from the time he launched his Congressional campaign on November 24 through the end of the quarter on December 31.
"I could not be happier to make such a strong showing right out of the gate. I am humbled by the outpouring of support for my candidacy, and looking forward to building on this momentum in my first full quarter as a Congressional candidate," said Caligiuri.
"Having spent over twenty years fundraising in the Fifth District, I am very impressed with Sam’s ability to bring in over $100,000 in the short weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Those are the toughest weeks of the year to raise money. Couple this fundraising success with the immediate support he received from legislators and rank-and-file Republicans alike, and the message is clear: Sam is the strongest candidate in this race," said Nancy Johnson, former Congresswoman from Connecticut’s 5th District, who has endorsed Caligiuri.
Over 98% of the money raised came from within Connecticut. This fundraising total does not include any transfer of funds from Caligiuri’s U.S. Senate campaign – no funds will be transferred from the Senate campaign. All contributions came from individual donors.
