To date, the Cockburn campaign has raised a total of $2,435,636.19, nearly triple her opponent, from supporters motivated by Leslie's inclusive message of affordable healthcare, better public education, and leveling the economic playing field.
"Democrats, Independents, and fed-up Republicans are turning out in record numbers because they know Leslie Cockburn will bring to bear a chorus of voices in Congress, rather than represent, as Riggleman would, the specials interests of a small number of corporations with undue influence," said campaign manager Louise Bruce. "Once again, we're seeing the results of Leslie's tireless efforts in the 5th. Fifteen months of listening and speaking to voters across the district has energized a groundswell. We are humbled by the outpouring of support on the eve of the election."
