Becky Edwards hits early fundraising goal with over $500,000 in contributions

 Former Utah House representative Becky Edwards reported raising $504,881 after her first quarter as a Republican candidate for U.S. Senate in Utah. This major milestone indicates that Edwards achieved her first fundraising goal after only 35 days on the campaign trail.

These contributions were the result of a true grassroots effort that brought together more than 269 individual donors, many chipping in $22 for the campaign’s #22for2022 initiative. Contributions were made before June 30, the end of the campaign finance reporting period set by the Federal Election Commission. 

The filings show that Edwards has strong local support with 83% of donations coming from Utahns. Additionally, nearly 67% of the contributions were under $200

“I’m grateful for the trust these donors have put in our campaign thus far,” Edwards said. “The support we’ve seen during the first weeks of this campaign shows us that voters are eager to have a better option in 2022. We’re ready to show Utahns how we’ll bring better leadership to the state.”

“Hitting our goals is an important part of our campaign,” Edwards said. “And it requires building lasting coalitions, acting on promises, and supporting a vision of collaboration, productivity, and balance for our future.”
