July 10, 2023
Nettleton – Today, the Brandon Presley for Governor campaign is announcing over $500,000 raised during the month of June, nearly $200,000 more than Jim Hood raised in 2019. The campaign closed out the fundraising period with over $1.85 million cash on hand, $400,000 more than Jim Hood had in 2019.
Presley for Governor’s fundraising haul was fueled by small-dollar donations, with 91 percent of contributions $200 or less and over 2,300 total donors, with over 1,100 new donors.
“Our campaign continues to reach people from all over Mississippi who know that Brandon Presley is the right choice to clean up Tate Reeves’ corruption, cut taxes for working families, and strengthen our healthcare system,” said Ron Owens, Brandon Presley for Mississippi Campaign Manager. “Tate Reeves continues to prioritize his highest donors over working Mississippians - even during devastating tornadoes - but these record-breaking numbers show that people know Brandon will be the type of leader who will put Mississippians first.”
For historical comparison, Brandon Presley for Governor raised significantly more than the previous Democratic nominee Jim Hood, who reported $330,000 in contributions for the same period in election year 2019.
Brandon Presley is a fighter who keeps his promises, stands up for the little guy, and isn't afraid to ruffle more than a few feathers to deliver results for hardworking Mississippi families. Brandon served as Mayor of Nettleton from 2001 to 2007, where he got the town moving again, then balanced the budget every year and cut taxes twice. As Public Service Commissioner, Brandon opened up meetings that had been closed to the public for decades, brought high-speed internet to some of the most remote and forgotten parts of Mississippi, put people back to work with the Hire Mississippi program, and saved taxpayers over 6 billion dollars.
