Media Release:

The Schatz campaign announced the results of their strong fundraising efforts for the last half of 2009. The Campaign Spending Commission Report which has been filed this morning shows $259,478 in the bank.

The Lieutenant Governor Campaign brought in contributions of more than 262 thousand dollars in 2009 as of the close of the reporting period ending December 31, 2009.

In the last reporting period which includes the final six months of 2009, the campaign brought in $120,531.72 contributions.

The early show of support and momentum demonstrates deep enthusiasm for our message of improving and changing state government, says Schatz. “We’ve seen people from across the state, from every sector, enthusiastic about changing the way state government works and getting our economy back on track. We’re grateful for the outpouring of support and believe it speaks volumes about the generosity of Hawaii’s people, and their commitment to a better future.”
Schatz notes that the fundraising success is especially challenging and critical in a difficult economy. “Resources are scarce in this economic environment, so we’re deeply appreciative of the support we’ve already garnered. We have a long way to go, but our message of changing the government for the better and fixing the economy is gaining traction.”
