Senator Patty Murray raises $1 million for her re-election
Senator Patty Murray’s campaign discloses they’ve raised over $1 million from 8,765 donors, in the first quarter of this year.
Last week I wrote about the 12 Republican challengers wanting to take on Senator Murray. Today her campaign reported on their fundraising efforts prior to March 31st.
Murray says more than 30 percent of her donors this quarter contributed through her website, “clearly demonstrating how important online outreach and grassroots support will be in powering our campaign to victory.”
Murray, who has had a rough week dealing with a death threat, says she’s confident she’ll win re-election in November.

“I’m truly humbled by this huge outpouring of support,” she says in a news release. “The press, pundits, and our opponents can all see the grassroots strength of our campaign.”
