Qualls Raises Over $870K in Third Quarter
Enters home stretch with $538,000 cash-on-hand
Plymouth, Minnesota – Kendall Qualls, Republican-endorsed candidate for Congress in Minnesota’s Third Congressional District, shattered his earlier impressive fundraising totals, raising $873,000 in the third quarter of the 2020 election cycle. Since the late July pre-primary report, Qualls has hauled in $696,000, and ends the quarter with $538,000 cash on hand.
“It is both humbling and exciting to have earned the financial and volunteer support of so many across the Third District and state of Minnesota who believe in our message of rebuilding our economy, keeping our neighborhoods safe, and addressing the challenges of race without racing to destroy each other. Our strong fundraising, especially from many first time donors, is an indicator of support and momentum from swing and independent voters,” Qualls said.
The 178 percent increase in fundraising from the second to the third quarter continues a pattern of exponential growth for Qualls and positions the campaign for a strong fourth quarter finish.
“It won’t come as a surprise if our fundraising success causes Dean Phillips, the third wealthiest member of Congress, to once again self-fund his campaign, despite earlier pledging not to do so. We expect Dean to quietly reach into his deep pockets to try to save his seat in Congress, but in the end, the voters of the Third Congressional District will see our campaign as a positive force for change in Minnesota and Washington,” concluded Qualls.
