State Senator Steve Hobbs, D-Lake Stevens, who entered the race to fill the Congressional seat vacated by Congressman Jay Inslee just over two months ago, reported raising over $55,000 on his first quarterly Federal Elections Commission statement, even while breaking from campaigning to conduct his annual two-week service in the Washington State National Guard.
“I have spent weeks talking with the people of Snohomish County about what is going on in their lives and in Washington, D.C., and I have seen an incredible response to my candidacy for Congress. The support I have received from my colleagues in the legislature and in the cities I aspire to represent in Congress, and my strong early fundraising is a good indicator that we are going to raise the funds needed to win this election.
“Money is an important factor in my ability to deliver my message of creating family-wage jobs, investing in American infrastructure and business, and providing opportunity for young people. I am pleased and humbled to say we are well on our way to getting that message to voters.
“We are building a strong, active, and robust campaign that I very much look forward to continuing over the next year.
“Because of my service, in and out of uniform, and my proven leadership in our state, I believe I am uniquely qualified to help our country through the difficult times we continue to face. I am thrilled to see that so many people in our community agree.”
Hobbs also has the most extensive endorsement list of any on his potential competitors.
