Congressional candidate Audrey Denney tops fundraising goals

“What I’m about to announce is unprecedented,” District 1 Congressional candidate Audrey Denney wrote tonight on her Facebook page. “With a little more than a month left before Election Day on November 6th, our grassroots campaign has far surpassed our total fundraising goal with over $900,000 from more than 10,000 individual contributions. Not a dime from corporate PACs. I will not be bought and paid for by lobbyists. I’m accountable to only you.

“To put this into perspective: Our campaign has raised more funds than all of Representative Doug LaMalfa’s past three challengers combined — nearly three times over.

“In the 10 months since entering this congressional race we were told over and over again that this couldn’t be done and that our goals were too ambitious. And yet, we’ve set up three offices spanned throughout our eleven county district open 7 days per week, hired full time staff, and produced multiple mailers, TV ads, and digital media to help us spread our message across our region. This is the most aggressive and organized congressional campaign California’s 1st District has ever seen from a challenger and it’s powered by people from all political, cultural, and socioeconomic backgrounds.

“Thank you for believing in our historical movement. Together we will bring better leadership to our Northern California region. I’m tremendously grateful for your support! Let’s do this!”

(Disclosure: We happily donated to Audrey’s campaign, and we put a campaign supporting her in our yard — until it was stolen. A new one is on the way.)

  1. Audrey has my vote-

    (Washington, DC) – Congressman Doug LaMalfa (R-Richvale) issued the following statement after President Donald Trump selected Brett Kavanaugh as his nominee for the Supreme Court vacancy left by the retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy.

    LaMalfa said: “One of the most impactful decisions a U.S. President can make is selecting a Supreme Court Justice, as they could be on the bench for many years. I’m pleased that for the second time in as many years, President Trump has made a solid decision that will preserve our Constitution by selecting a strong conservative voice that will serve on the court for many years to come. Brett Kavanaugh has established a track record of fighting regulatory overreach on the D.C. Court of Appeals since 2006, and he would bring those same values to the Supreme Court. I call upon the Senate to ensure he is confirmed in a timely and respectful manner.”
    Selfservative BS meter off scale-

  2. LaMalfa is a republican toady where conservative ideology that caters to the wealthy supersedes serving the people. He will do and vote however he is told by party leadership. He can do this because the district has been a solid republican bastion for decades where people vote party rather than person. John Doolittle won re-election, prior to LaMalfa, despite being under federal investigation. LaMalfa needs to go.
