The finance report released this afternoon by the Stacey Abrams for Governor campaign showed $5.9 million raised in the first 25 days of October.

The strong final finance report before Election Day gives the campaign $3.9 million cash-on-hand heading into the final weekend of this election – money that will continue to fund the largest Get Out The Vote operation in Georgia history.

“We are humbled and energized by the huge investment and belief in this campaign from across Georgia, which shows that voters are ready for Stacey Abrams to be Governor – for her experience, for her vision, and for her leadership,” said Campaign Manager Lauren Groh-Wargo.“These funds have been channeled into our massive voter turnout, persuasion and engagement operations ensuring millions of eligible Georgians in every corner of the state cast their ballots early or on November 6th and lead this campaign to victory.” 

Key stats:

  • $22.18 million total raised this campaign cycle
  • More than 42,000 Georgians have now contributed, the overwhelming majority giving less than $100 this campaign cycle
  • $5.9 million raised during the 25-day reporting period
  • $1.5 million collected from nearly 19,000 donations who gave less than $100
  • Nearly 30% of the total raised by the Abrams campaign was from small-dollar donors.

The campaign has already devoted vast resources to engaging every single potential voter across every the state, encouraging them to take advantage of the convenience of early vote and vote-by-mail. The campaign will continue its push for early voting in the next 24 hours, and will then kick off GOTV weekend with a visit from President Obama.

Abrams has visited every county in Georgia, and she has traveled across the state to share her vision of good-paying jobs, public education, and health care access for all. The Democratic Party of Georgia has more than 100 field staffers who have opened offices in every region of the state, reaching out to voters in every single one of Georgia’s 159 counties.
