Joe Miklosi For Congress - Kickoff Speech

Almost $350,000 cash on hand

Greenwood Village, CO, April 11, 2012 - In a sign of increasing momentum, the Joe Miklosi for Congress campaign announced today that it has posted its strongest fundraising quarter yet for the 2012 election cycle.

Contributions over the last three months of $235,174 have brought the campaign’s total raised to more than $474,000. Miklosi has seen a dramatic surge in donor activity since clearing the primary field in the new 6th congressional district six weeks ago. The campaign reports over 2000 donors in the first quarter including 1,965 from individual contributors.

“As we head into this election, I am grateful to have the active involvement of so many individuals in our campaign,” said Miklosi. “I believe it’s because they fully understand that we are fighting for the future of our country.”

Miklosi has been focused on incumbent Mike Coffman’s voting record. Coffman supports the Ryan budget which ends Medicare as we know it; the Blunt amendment which allows employers to determine whether your health insurance provides coverage for contraception and other items; and the Colorado Personhood amendment which outlaws abortion even in the case of rape, incest or the health of the mother.

As a result, grassroots and online donors continue to be a strong source of support. In the first quarter 2012, more than 2,000 supporters contributed to the Miklosi campaign, with an average contribution of $80.

“We’ve only had the field to ourselves for six weeks this quarter so this represents tremendous growth. This is a broad base of support that grows stronger every day, I’m confident we will have the resources we need to win in November,” said campaign finance director Joe Livoti. “And we’re just getting started.”
