Thursday, April 12th, 2018
Eric Graben, Democratic candidate for Congress in South Carolina’s 4th district, announced that he successfully raised more than $55,000 in the two week period between the announcement of his candidacy on March 15 and the end of the quarter.
“I am beyond thankful to everyone who stepped up and has joined our team since I launched the campaign,” Graben said in announcing the total. “Our early strength shows that our community is ready for leadership that will bring us together to solve our biggest issues, and go beyond those looking to divide us and hold us back. With over 20 years’ experience in forming businesses and helping them raise capital, I understand that success involves doing deals with someone on the other side and that your negotiating partner is not your enemy. I am truly honored by the by all of the people who have stood with me so early in the campaign to bring cooperation back to Congress.”
Graben’s announcement builds on his campaign’s momentum. Just last week, he announced that six current and former elected officials from the district had endorsed his campaign, the first such announcement from any Democrat in the race.
