NANCY MACE ANNOUNCES FUNDRAISING TOTALS FOR S.C. STATE HOUSE DISTRICT 99
More than $75,000 raised with 247 contributions in first two weeks since announcing bid
October 4, 2017 – Daniel Island, S.C. – Just days after announcing her bid for the vacant South Carolina State House (District 99) seat, Daniel Island businesswoman and mother, Nancy Mace, announced this week that she has raised more than $75,000 in the first two weeks of her campaign.
Mace supporter Ed Howard of Daniel Island attributed this overwhelming outpouring of support to Nancy’s energy, ideas, accessibility and her roots in the district.
“Nancy Mace is not just another politician who says one thing and does another,” Howard said. “She is a successful businesswoman who is passionate about bettering our communities in Hanahan, Daniel Island, Mt. Pleasant and her home town of Goose Creek. I can’t think of anyone who will work harder for the people of our district or the people of this state. The financial support Nancy is receiving – and will continue to receive as this race unfolds – reflects an overwhelming sense of confidence in her candidacy.”
Mace backer Michael Ramsey, a real estate appraiser in Hanahan, concurred.
“I like her ideas,” Ramsey said. “I like the fact she’s committed to bringing common sense, outcome-oriented perspectives to what government is doing – and I especially like the fact she is a fiscal conservative who is going to insist on accountability and challenge all the status quo spending at the State House. And even better, she’s from here and understands our community.”
George “Pat” Waters, military vet and grandson of General George S. Patton, of Mount Pleasant said Mace’s personal narrative along with her positions are resonating with voters.
“I think if you look at what she’s done in her life – the toughness she’s shown from her time at The Citadel to her campaign work to her success in business – that’s the sort of driven person we need representing us in Columbia,” Waters said. “She is fighter – and people like the ideas she is fighting for.”
“My roots are here, I grew up here, I’m raising my family here and I started my business here,” said Mace. “I’m running for the betterment of our communities – to improve outcomes across-the-board for our neighborhoods, our businesses and our families. The early and overwhelming support I’ve received is humbling, energizing and inspiring – and I look forward to keeping it going as we press on to the special election on Tuesday, November 14th.”
Here is the breakdown of her fundraising totals in the first two weeks:
At the end of quarter Saturday, September 30th, Mace raised approximately $72,937.
As of Monday close of business, Mace was at approximately $77,715.
The average donation amount was approximately $295.
