Democrat Carolyn Bourdeaux raised more than $350,000 in the seven weeks since she announced her second bid to represent Georgia’s 7th District, her campaign told The Hill on Thursday.

The six-figure haul is a large amount for a House candidate in a nonelection year. By comparison, Bordeaux raised $219,545 in the first quarter of 2018, a midterm election year.

Bourdeaux’s campaign said that the first-quarter total came from more than 1,000 individual contributions and brings her total cash on hand to nearly $400,000. Bourdeaux started the quarter with just under $142,000 in her campaign account.

“I'm incredibly grateful to our supporters who have put us in a strong position as we kick off this campaign,” Bourdeaux said in a statement.
