This morning Dr. Ghazala Hashmi reported outraising all of her primary contenders in the most recent filing for April and May fundraising, which marks the third straight fundraising period in which Dr. Hashmi was at the top of the pack. The Hashmi campaign raised more than $60,000 between April and May and now has more than $70,000 in the bank as they approach next week’s primary election.
“I am incredibly humbled by the tremendous support hundreds of people have shown my campaign,” Hashmi said. “It’s clear that the people of the 10th District are hungry for change. They want a senator who is going to work to prevent the kind of tragic gun violence we saw in Virginia Beach last week instead of one that votes in lockstep with the NRA; They want a senator who is going to stand up for women’s reproductive freedom, instead of one that votes to deny it; They want a senator who will fight to expand access to quality, affordable healthcare, not one that votes to restrict it.”
Hashmi’s strong fundraising numbers along with coveted endorsements from NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia, New Virginia Majority, Keystone Mountain Lakes Regional Council of Carpenters, IBEW Local 666, CASA in Action, Blue Virginia, and Together We Will RVA make her the clear favorite to win the primary on Tuesday.
