Phoenix, AZ — Kyrsten Sinema for Congress raised $333,062 in the first three months of 2013, leaving the freshman Congresswoman’s re-election committee with over $300,000 on hand.
Sinema’s 2012 campaign raised and spent roughly $2.1 million in a period of ten months, triumphing over the more than $3 million of negative TV ads which were run against her in the Phoenix media market. In the 2014 election, Sinema’s strong fundraising prepares her campaign to blunt another negative TV onslaught.
“We are off to a strong start on the strength of Sinema’s grassroots support in the community,” said Tim Oyen, Finance Director for Kyrsten Sinema for Congress. “She spends so much time visiting with businesspeople and community leaders in Mesa, Tempe, Chandler, Ahwatukee, Sunnyslope, Arcadia and Central Phoenix. We’re going to continue to work hard at this.”
