MOLINE – Today, Congresswoman Cheri Bustos (IL-17) announced raising nearly $475,000 in the second quarter (Q2) of 2019 – ending with more than $2.3 million cash-on-hand. Showing strong grassroots support, nearly 90 percent of contributions to Congresswoman Bustos were under $100 and the average online contribution was under $13.
“With nearly 90 percent of contributions coming from small-dollar donors, Cheri is demonstrating strong enthusiasm and true grassroots support across Illinois’ 17th District – setting her up for success in 2020,” said Denise Mousouris, Friends of Cheri Bustos National Finance Director. “In Congress, she’s kept a relentless focus on results, working to pass 10 bills to bring down the cost of health care and prescription drugs. Let’s be clear – extreme politicians are working overtime to repeal the Affordable Care Act without a replacement, but Cheri will continue pushing for commonsense solutions that protect coverage for pre-existing conditions and bring down costs for Illinois families.”
