Sen. Sherrod Brown Raises More Than $3 Million in Second Quarter

Average Contribution Size Of Under $70 Dollars Contrasts With $10.6 Million In Outside Spending Against Sherrod.

Today, Friends of Sherrod Brown released its second quarter fundraising totals showing that Sen. Brown raised more than $3 million in the second quarter of 2012 with a majority of contributions coming from Ohio, an average contribution size of under $70,  and now has $6.5 million on hand.

Reflecting Sherrod’s strong grassroots support from families across Ohio, the campaign now has nearly 70,000 contributors, which contrasts with the $10.6 million that’s been spent against Sherrod by secretly funded special interest groups.

“The outpouring of support Sherrod received from Ohioans this quarter will help us continue building grassroots momentum for Sherrod as we discuss his work to save the Ohio auto industry and its 850,000 industry related jobs, fight Chinese currency manipulation, and protect Social Security and Medicare for seniors,” said Sadie Weiner, spokesperson for Friends of Sherrod Brown. “Despite $10.6 million dollars in special interest cash levying more false attacks on Sherrod than any other Senate candidate in the country, Ohio’s middle class knows they have a champion in Sherrod Brown who is fighting every day to create jobs and move Ohio’s economy forward.”
