Vermont Business Magazine Today, in advance of the quarterly filing deadline, Becca Balint’s campaign for Congress shared its impressive Q4 2021 fundraising totals with the public. In less than three weeks—over the holiday season—Balint raised $200,695.18. Balint’s extraordinary number of individual contributors indicate widespread, grassroots support all across Vermont, putting her in a strong position to build a robust campaign apparatus in advance of the August primary.

“Over my first three weeks in this race, I was overwhelmed by the outpouring of support from all corners of our state,” said Becca Balint, Democratic candidate for Congress. “I’m so proud of the building blocks we are laying for a truly progressive, grassroots campaign centered around the issues that impact our families the most. I couldn’t be more grateful to the thousands of Vermonters who have come on board in support of our positive vision of a more just future. Together, we will build the government and country we deserve.”

“Becca’s monumental fundraising totals are a major testament to her strength as a candidate, her grassroots support, and her momentum following an exceptional launch,” said Josh Rosenbaum, Campaign Manager for Becca for Vermont. “As we crisscross the state, voters tell us they want a champion for Medicare for All, a Green New Deal, and racial, economic, and housing justice. They want a genuine candidate who believes wholeheartedly in the possibilities of a more prosperous future for all of us. They want a leader who knows the needs of working families—because she’s lived them. That’s what we have with Becca, and that’s why the enthusiasm for her campaign is so widespread.”
