James outraises Peters a third time; Cash on hand nearly even—James at $8.58 million to Peters’ $8.75 million
Livonia, Mich. – John James’ U.S. Senate campaign today announced giving more than $500,000 to charity. This comes on top of news that James raised $4.8 million in Q1, outraising the Democrat incumbent for the third quarter in a row.
The James campaign closed with more than $8.58 million which almost even with Peters’ $8.75 million. Peters had a $3 million cash on hand advantage in July 2019 which James has turned into less than $180,000 difference in 10 months.
The Michigan Senate race is consistently ranked one of the most competitive in the nation. James’ campaign had more than 52,000 donors with 94% of the donations being less than $100 and 83% being less than $50.
“John refuses to wait until after election day to make a difference in the lives of Michiganders—that’s what voters can take away from this news,” said campaign spokesperson Abby Walls. “He brings to the table innovative leadership focused on using every resource possible to improve the lives of Michiganders. It’s what Michigan needs today and in the future.”
Through his nickel promise, the James campaign has given more than $547,000 to charities throughout Michigan. In the last 2 weeks, the campaign has given more than $250,000 to help Michigan deal with COVID-19 including $50,000 to food pantries across Michigan and $200,000 for a Detroit health-care facility to purchase personal protection equipment and key medical equipment. Details will be forthcoming over the next few days.
