Mathis campaign starts 2022 strong raising over $550,000 in fourth quarter
CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa – This week, Liz Mathis, Iowa State Senator and candidate for Congress in Iowa’s 2nd Congressional District, announced that her campaign will report raising over $550,000 on her fourth quarter 2021 report. The Mathis campaign continues to raise funds at a record-breaking pace for an Iowa congressional challenger.
Mathis’ campaign momentum and fundraising success is driven by a broad base of supporters from across the district. Iowans represent 85% of campaign contributions, clearly indicating a wide spectrum of voters that want an independent voice in Washington who will put the needs of Iowans ahead of party politics.
Mathis ends the quarter with over $930,000 cash on hand and $1.19 million raised for the cycle, giving her a solid footing going into the election year.
“I want to thank the thousands of supporters who pitched in what they could during what I know continues to be a challenging time for many — you have helped propel us into an even stronger grassroots organizing machine, poised to win in November,” said Liz Mathis. “It is time to take Iowa values of truth and fairness back to Washington and create an Iowa where farmers and small businesses — and all Iowa workers — can thrive.”
