FRIENDS OF SHERROD BROWN RAISES $3.3 MILLION IN FIRST QUARTER, REPORTS $11.8 MILLION CASH ON HAND

Latest Haul Sets Ohio Record For Q1 Of An Election Year
Cash On Hand Nearly Double What Campaign Had At This Point In 2012 Election

COLUMBUS – Friends of Sherrod Brown raised $3.3 million in the first quarter of 2018, and ended March with more than $11.8 million on hand — nearly twice as much as it had at this point in the 2012 cycle. Sherrod’s $3.3 million haul sets an Ohio record for a campaign in the first quarter of an election year, and is almost $900,000 more than Senator Rob Portman’s reelection campaign raised in the first three months of 2016.

30,575 individuals contributed to Sherrod’s campaign in the first three months of 2018 and 129,161 have given this cycle. The average contribution to Friends of Sherrod Brown this cycle is just $44, demonstrating that Sherrod’s record of fighting for working families resonates with his grassroots supporters.

“No one fights harder for Ohioans than Sherrod Brown and it’s clear Ohioans are rallying around Sherrod in his reelection campaign,” said Friends of Sherrod Brown Campaign Manager Justin Barasky. “We are grateful for the support of grassroots donors across our state. With their help, we can take on the special interests and dark money groups who will spend millions to try to buy Ohio’s U.S. Senate seat.”
