Political outsider Michelle Mortensen announced today that she raised over $80,000 in the first two months of her bid for Congress. The mark is more than any other Republican candidate for NV-03 was able to do in the entire third quarter.
Michelle announced on November 8th and had 54 days before the year-end deadline to raise funds for her first campaign for political office. In her first quarter, Michelle was able to raise more funds than the two politicians in the race did in theirs’, including more contributions under $200 than both politicians combined.
Mortensen, an Emmy award winning journalist and conservative, stepped down from her career in television news to enter the race for Congress.
“I left a career I loved to take a stand for the people of Southern Nevada,” said Mortensen. “The media has lost its way and I couldn’t take it anymore. I have been truly humbled by the outpouring of support since we got in this race. We are in to win.”
