California — Businessman and California Republican gubernatorial candidate John Cox has raised over $204,000 from over 1,500 individual donors in the last 45 days in addition to a $3 million contribution from himself.
“I’m irrevocably committed to this race,” Cox said. “19 states have recently elected Republican business people to governorships, even dark blue states like Maryland and Massachusetts – I believe we can do that here. I’m in it to win, and that has been resonating with people throughout California.”
Republican U.S. Senate candidates in 2016 struggled to raise around $200,000 throughout their campaigns, whereas Cox has done so within the last 45 days.
In contrast to Cox’s strong fundraising numbers, Republican Assemblyman Travis Allen has in total only raised money from 1,108 donors (primarily special interests) since first running for office in 2012. Furthermore, former Republican Assemblyman David Hadley announced that his campaign’s best-case-scenario fundraising goal was to raise $1,000 from 2017 people, which would equate to $2.17 million, which is a million less than Cox has raised to date and a quantity of donors Cox will surpass in the upcoming weeks.

“Californians are tired of the status-quo in Sacramento and want honest change,” Cox said. “I’m the only candidate in the race for governor that isn’t a politician and that actually has a real plan to break the special interest money hold on our state capitol and return it to the people.”
The final quarterly report will be made public within one to two weeks.
