Ashburn - The Shawn Mitchell for State Senate campaign today announced their June 30th end of quarter fundraising total. Mitchell, a Democrat and first time candidate, is running for the open 13th Senate District seat.
“The support we have received is exciting,” said Mitchell Campaign Manager, Dominic Gabello. “Voters of the 13th District are looking for a mainstream candidate - one who will listen to their views and vote for the interests of the district, not those of a political party while in Richmond.”
The campaign officially launched on June 21st and raised $20,854.75 from nearly 100 contributors and has almost $15,000 cash on hand through June 30th. Donations came from a mix of Democrats, Republicans and Independents, with more than half of the contributions coming from first-time political donors.
“Shawn brings the right mix of experience and background to this race,” Gabello added. “As a combat veteran and a small business owner, Shawn understands the challenges that families and businesses in the 13th are facing from sitting in traffic to balancing their budgets, or trying to spend more time with their loved ones. Residents of the 13th want someone who understands those challenges and will work to improve their quality of life.”
Shawn Mitchell lives in Broadlands with his wife Ashley and daughter Isabella. He is a combat veteran and owns a small business in the 13th District.
