Johnson Campaign Raises Over $100,000 In First Six Weeks

Plymouth, MN -- Today, the Johnson For Governor Campaign announced that it has raised more than $100,000 in just the first six weeks since launching the campaign on May 10th.

"Running a full statewide operation, not just in the nomination phase but in a general election, is critical. I'm very pleased with our progress so far and I know it will continue," said Johnson For Governor Campaign Manager Justin Arnold. "Jeff's dedication and work ethic have been obvious in the first six weeks, and our team will keep doing the hard work of building a winning operation, assembling a strong statewide team, and raising the financial resources to win."

"The response I've received these first few weeks has been tremendous and very encouraging," said Johnson. "Minnesotans are clearly ready for a change, and I'm ready to deliver it."

  • The over $100,000 does not include any personal loan or pledges, it is all cash in hand raised since May 10th
