Braddock, PA — In the two weeks since John Fetterman announced that he’s exploring a run for the U.S. Senate, grassroots donors have responded with an incredible 33,000 contributions totaling more than $1,000,000. Donations have poured in from all 50 states and from all 67 of Pennsylvania’s counties. Both the majority of donations and the majority of money raised have come from in-state.
“I’m sorry to sound like a broken record, but I am just continually overwhelmed with gratitude for the outpouring of support since I announced that I’m taking a hard look at this race,” said John Fetterman. “The way people have responded has been beyond anything we could have imagined. Gisele and I are humbled and thankful beyond words.”
Making the milestone even more impressive is the fact that 99% of contributions have been small-dollar donations under $200, with an average donation of $33.
“This is going to be the most important, most competitive race in the country in 2022,” said Bobby Maggio from Team Fetterman. “It’s clear that there’s incredible enthusiasm around the idea of John running for Senate and that we would be able to build a giant grassroots campaign to fight for every county, and every vote.”
