Preliminary cost estimate to run an effective campaign in district 8:
Direct mail: $5000
Radio and Print Ads: $8000
Print Materials and yard signs: $7500
The maximum donation amount for the primary is $2,000 dollars. Bernie Sanders was able to compete with individual donations as little as $27 dollars. I would need 925 donations of $27 dollars in order to have enough money to properly compete. Thank you for your support!
I will not be accepting donations from Philip Morris, Monsanto and the National Rifle Association.
