BRIDGEPORT, Conn. — The Dave Walker for Governor Campaign has raised the requisite $250,000 to qualify for the Citizen’s Election Program grant.
The campaign has raised more than $277,000 in contributions of no more than $100 to abide by state guidelines.
"Passing this key fundraising milestone so soon is a recognition of the momentum our campaign has and that voters around the state recognize that I have the right experience to lead the Connecticut Turnaround,” said Walker, a Bridgeport resident and former comptroller general of the United States. ”With my experience re-organizing and turning around large, complicated government and private sector entities, I won’t be learning on the job. I will put together a turnaround team that will revitalize our state.”
The CEP was put into place to limit the role of private financing and to encourage voters to participate in the states political process.
The Walker campaign has received contributions from across Connecticut and 47 states, districts and territories.
