Bustos Campaign Surpasses Total Raised in Previous Election Cycles, Retains $987,000 Cash-On-Hand for Final Stretch
Today, Cheri Bustos for Congress announced it raised $683,000 in the third fundraising quarter of 2014, a new record for Illinois' 17th Congressional District. The campaign has raised just under $2.7 million during this election cycle, another record for Illinois' 17th Congressional District, and enters the final month of the campaign with $987,000 cash-on-hand.
“Our campaign is humbled to have the strong support of so many across our region who know that Cheri Bustos is the candidate with the right priorities for Illinois,” said Bustos' Campaign Manager Jeremy Jansen. “Cheri is running to continue her fight to bring middle class values and common sense back to Washington. That means putting job-creation and our economy first, reducing the deficit in a balanced way, while protecting Medicare and Social Security, and standing up for America’s veterans.”
Cheri represents Illinois’ 17th Congressional District in Congress and lives in East Moline with her husband, Gerry. They have three grown children.
