Phoenix, AZ — Kyrsten Sinema for Congress has raised more than $775,000 in the third quarter of 2012, and will report more than $650,000 raised in the most recent filing period, which covers August 9 through September 30. This adds to Sinema’s momentum after her double digit win in the August primary. Her Republican opponent, Bush appointee Vernon Parker, limped out of his primary with around 23 percent of the vote.
The camera-shy Parker has still not participated in a public debate with Sinema, despite nearly a dozen offers.
In Q2, Sinema out-raised Parker, $367,000 to $138,000.
“Sinema’s strength in this pro-Obama district is amplified by her successful fundraising, with over 6,700 contributors,” said Rodd McLeod, Sinema’s campaign manager. “Sinema is outcommunicating Parker on TV and at the doors, while Parker relies on campaign signs bragging that he has the support of President Bush. It’s no wonder his consultants will not allow him to debate.”
