Sheheen for South Carolina today announced that it has raised more than $1.1 million and ended the third quarter with more than $1 million in the bank.
The campaign raised $565,507.67 in the third quarter from 1,103 contributors – 97.1 percent of whom live in South Carolina – with an average contribution of under $500.
The strong response from South Carolinians this quarter brings the campaign fundraising total to $1,176,822.57 since its start in April, with a total of $1,045,944.14 cash on hand.
“The outpouring of support for Vincent Sheheen’s vision to create jobs and build an economy from within South Carolina has been tremendous,” said Andrew Whalen, Sheheen for South Carolina Campaign Manager. “In just over five months our campaign has received more than a million dollars from hardworking South Carolinians. The people of South Carolina have had it with Nikki Haley’s failed leadership and her failed economic policies, which is why she has had to spend so much time raising money from out-of-state extremists — often on the taxpayers’ dime. South Carolina’s families and small businesses are ready for change and clearly embracing Vincent Sheheen’s plan for the future.”
