FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SANDY SPRINGS, GA—Lucy McBath, Democratic candidate for the 6th Congressional District of Georgia, has raised twice the amount of her Republican incumbent opponent, Karen Handel, in Q3.
After running the most expensive house race in history last year, Handel’s fundraising has resulted in under $550k, while Lucy McBath raised almost twice that amount ($960k) through an impressive 26,500 individual contributions.
“One month out of the election – we are in position to defeat Karen Handel. Lucy is raising more money, and has a clear advantage in earned and paid media. Lucy is using her resources to tell her story – while Karen Handel is repeating her same talking points from 2017,” said Communications Director Jake Orvis. He continued, “It is not surprising Handel is posting weak fundraising numbers. This district wants an independent thinker in Washington – and not a career politician like Handel who votes with Trump 98% of the time.”
