The Freitas campaign raised $1.8 million in the third quarter of this year. Here is the story from The Hill that I referenced in the newsletter this morning.
“Republican House candidate Nick Freitas reported raising a record-breaking $1.8 million in the third quarter of 2020 in his race against incumbent Rep. Abigail Spanberger (D-Va.), according to figures exclusively obtained by The Hill.
The third-quarter fundraising haul far surpasses his second-quarter total of $405,000. Freitas’s campaign has yet to officially release its cash-on-hand total but estimates it will be around $700,000.
Additionally, Freitas’s latest fundraising surpassed the previous Virginia House GOP single-quarter fundraising record of $1.5 million, which was set by former Rep. Scott Rigell (R-Va.) in the third quarter of 2010.
Spanberger has not yet released her third-quarter fundraising figures but so far has outraised Freitas, raking in $4.86 million this cycle, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. Spanberger has a cash-on-hand total of total of $4.08 million.”
