Reilly Surpasses $4 Million Milestone
Unmatched Cash-On-Hand Mark Reached After Highly Successful Birthday
Fundraiser Brought In Over $300,000 From More Than 600 Individual
BOSTON - Attorney General and Democratic candidate for Governor Tom
Reilly today announced that his campaign has surpassed the $4 million
cash-on-hand mark in fundraising, reaching that goal after a highly
successful fundraiser last night.
The fundraiser, held at the State Room in Boston, brought in over
$300,000 from more than 600 individual contributors. The event will
vault Reilly over the $4 million cash-on-hand mark in his March
campaign finance filings.
Reilly campaign manager Sean Sinclair noted that cash-on-hand is the
only true marker in fundraising, assuring that Reilly will have the
resources to compete against the deep pockets of Kerry Healey and
Christy Mihos in November.
"Kerry Healey and Christy Mihos are going to pump millions of their
personal fortunes into their candidacies, and it is vital for the
Democratic candidate to have the resources to compete," Sinclair said.
"Tom Reilly is clearly the best candidate - in terms of
experience, vision, and support - to become our next Governor and get
Massachusetts moving again."
No other candidate for Governor in Massachusetts history has reached
the $4 million cash-on-hand level at this stage of the campaign.
