D.J. Jordan Raises The Most Of All First-Time GOP Delegate Challenger Candidates in Virginia
In The First Quarter of 2019, Jordan Campaign Raises $100,000
WOODBRIDGE, VA – During the first quarter of the year, the D.J. Jordan For Delegate campaign has set itself apart by raising the most money of all first-time Republican challenger candidates for the Virginia House of Delegates. The campaign raised $100,166 during the first quarter, which also ranks as the fifth highest for any candidate overall – Republican or Democrat – in the state.
“We launched this campaign in January to fight for our freedoms and equal opportunity for families, and I’m glad that this message has resonated with so many people,” said D.J. Jordan. “This first quarter finance report is a testament that our campaign is strong and will be very competitive this year.”
There are 15 Republican challenger candidates against a Democratic incumbent in the Virginia House of Delegates.
Candidates are required to file reports detailing how much they raised in the first quarter of the year to the Virginia Department of Elections by April 15. The amount raised by D.J. came from 258 contributions, with the majority coming from donations of $100 or less. D.J.’s haul also represents the most raised for any candidate for the 31st District at this stage of the race.
Jordan is the former Chairman of the Virginia State Board of Social Services, and is focusing his campaign on economic and educational opportunity for the families in the 31st District. On January 8, 2019, he announced the campaign for this election, and on March 30, Jordan was officially declared the GOP nominee, as he was the only Republican to file for the seat before the March 25 filing deadline. He will face Delegate Elizabeth Guzman this November.
