Carolyn Bourdeaux raises over $350,000 in Q1; continues to reject all corporate PAC contributions

The Democrat running for GA-07’s open seat reported cash on hand of nearly $400,000 after collecting over 1,000 individual contributions in the first quarter.

Suwanee, Georgia -- Today, Carolyn Bourdeaux, Democratic candidate for Georgia’s 7th Congressional District, announced her campaign has raised over $350,000 in the seven weeks since she announced her bid for Congress.

Her campaign received over 1,000 individual contributions in the first quarter, including donors from every zip code within the 7th congressional district. Bourdeaux has once again taken the pledge to reject all corporate PAC money as part of her efforts to reform and restore our democracy by rooting out special interest influence.

Since announcing her second-bid for the seat following what was the closest Congressional race of 2018, Bourdeaux has earned the support of Congressmen John Lewis and Hank Johnson, Ambassador Andrew Young, Governor Roy Barnes, Senator Max Cleland, former GA-06 Democratic nominee Jon Ossoff and multiple members of the local Gwinnett County delegation, including Reps. Jasmine Clark, Shelly Hutchinson, Gregg Kennard, Dewey McClain and Donna McLeod.

“I'm incredibly grateful to our supporters who have put us in a strong position as we kick off this campaign,” Bourdeaux said. “Together, we’re sending a strong message that we are tired of partisan divisions and gridlock holding us back, and we’re ready to forge a new path forward to get things done for our communities. We have a long way to go, but this is the start of a movement to finish the job.”
