GENEVIEVE COLLINS ANNOUNCES FIRST QUARTER FUNDRAISING TOTAL OF $719,795
DALLAS, TX – Dallas businesswoman and 32nd district Republican nominee for Congress Genevieve Collins announced today she will report a total of $719,795 raised in the first fundraising quarter of 2020.
Genevieve has brought in nearly $1.7 million in just eight months. Her outright victory in the primary combined with her strong and consistent fundraising totals makes her very-well positioned to beat Colin Allred and flip the 32nd district in November. The first quarter total includes a $250,000 loan to the campaign.
“In the last 3 months, our grassroots community has rallied around our campaign both with their votes as well as financial support. Even during these trying times, North Texans are coming together to support each other as well as our campaign to send a clear message that we will stand strong against everything that Nancy Pelosi and Colin Allred have to throw at us,” said Collins.
On Monday, POLITICO reported that Pelosi’s House Majority PAC has booked over $1.1 million dollars of TV spending in the Dallas market for the fall.
“In the midst of the COVID-19 crisis, our team has been hard at work pushing out resources to businesses about relief available to them through SBA programs such as Paycheck Protection. It is absolutely crucial that we have leadership in Congress who understands the landscape our North Texas businesses and their owners now face - I know what they face because I’ve spent my career in the trenches of business, creating jobs and balancing a budget. And while Colin Allred talks a lot about meeting our local needs, the fact of the matter is that he hasn’t spent a day of his life involved with a business or the business community. Now more than ever, our district needs a representative who understands, from day one, the type of representation the job creators that fuel the economic engine of North Texas need. When I’m elected in November that is exactly what they will get.”
A 7th Generation Texan and 4th Generation Dallasite, Genevieve Collins is a lifelong Republican and graduate of the Cox School of Business at SMU. As Head of Corporate Strategy at Istation, a leading education technology firm Collins was named one of 2018 20 Under 40 in the Dallas area for her work turning around struggling school districts.
