BOZEMAN, MT — In the second quarter of 2020, Kathleen Williams for Montana raised just over $760,000. The campaign has $1.63 million on hand.
“Montanans know that Kathleen will go to Congress and be a voice for them – not for special interests – and she’ll put Montana first,” said Kathleen Williams for Montana campaign manager Jeff Allen. “This strong fundraising report is yet another reminder that Montanans are tired of out-of-touch politicians who don’t share Montana values, and that they trust Kathleen to bring true, independent representation to Washington.”
During the pre-June 2 primary reporting period, Kathleen Williams for Montana announced raising $199,932. Another $561,794 came after the primary. This election cycle, 72% of the campaign’s contributions have been from Montanans. 75% of the contributions made have been for $100 or less.
Earlier this quarter, Kathleen won her primary by an 89%-11% margin, and polling from the end of June shows the race for Montana’s lone U.S. House seat is tied. Cook Political Report considers the race “Lean Republican.”
Kathleen Williams has been called the “candidate Montana has been waiting for.” A three-term legislator with a nearly four-decade career solving tough issues and getting results, she is true to Montana—hard-working, independent, and honest. In Congress, she’ll stand up to special interests and partisan gridlock, and work just as hard for Montanans as they do every day.
