ICYMI: Kathleen Williams’ Montana-Powered Fundraising Puts Open Seat Race On The Map

BOZEMAN, MT — Following the release of year-end FEC filings, Kathleen Williams has emerged as a grassroots fundraising powerhouse, raising nearly $1.2 million in 2019, and entering 2020 with over $810,000 on hand.

78% of Kathleen’s contributions came from Montanans and 89% of contributions were $100 or less. There have been over 11,000 individual contributions to the campaign, and she is not taking corporate PAC money.

The Billings Gazette reported that “Montana’s U.S. House race is shaping up to be the one the nation’s most expensive for an open seat.

“Democrat Kathleen Williams was ranked 10th in donations among U.S. House candidates in open-seat races in 2019. The Bozeman conservationist’s $1.16 million in net receipts ranked fourth best among Democrats in open-seat races. Year-end reports for 2019 were filed Jan. 31.”

“I’m honored to have the support of so many Montanans who share a vision of a less divisive and dysfunctional Congress,” Kathleen told the Billings Gazette. “They’re ready for a real representative who is focused on results like lowering health care costs, fostering opportunity for all Montanans, and fighting attacks on our outdoor heritage. I’m ready to be their champion.”
