Esty raises over $250,000 in the second quarter
Democratic candidate for the 5th District Elizabeth Esty announced Friday morning that she raised over $250,000 in the second quarter, raising a total of $423,653 in four months.
Esty’s finance director, Brian Weeks, said the sum comes from 700 contributions from individuals.
“It is exciting to see momentum building for our campaign,” Esty said in an e-mailed statement. “As I travel across the district, I hear from people who want a break from the same old politics and are looking for new leadership to create jobs and restore our middle class. That’s why I’m running for Congress.”
Esty, a former state representative from Cheshire, was also placed “On the List” by EMILY’s List, an organization supporting the election of pro-choice Democratic women, indicating its support of her candidacy early in the race.
