Democrat Roy Cho, running for Congress in CD 5, stated today that July through September he raised $295,000. The aggregate total for the campaign cycle through September 30 will be reported at $941,000, with $303,000 in cash on hand. In comparison, the Democratic candidate for this district in 2012 raised a total of $51,444.
He said, “Our amazing supporters and donors have put us on the map and we’re poised for a major upset on November 4th. Their support is proof that northern New Jersey is ready to reject Scott Garrett’s failed and deceptive Tea Party politics and elect a Congressman who will put them first.”
Among the notable individuals who contributed to his campaign are both NJ U. S. Senators, Reps. Frank Pallone, Bill Pascrell and Albio Sires, former US Ambassador to Germany Phil Murphy, CEO of LegalZoom John Suh, and activist and actor George Takei.
On Tuesday former US Senator Bill Bradley will headline a major fundraiser for Cho at 6:30pm in The Women’s Club of Ridgewood, 215 West Ridgewood Avenue, Ridgewood. Bradley recently said, “…I have watched as Members of Congress have become ever more blindly partisan and ideologically driven…Roy Cho is part of the solution.”
