Attorney Joseph Kennedy III (D), the son of former Rep. Joseph Kennedy (D-Mass.), raised more than $1.3 million in the first quarter in his bid for the Bay State’s 4th district seat.
In an email to supporters, campaign manager Nick Clemons wrote about the jaw-dropping fundraising figure.
“The donations came from more than 1,500 individuals; nearly half of whom gave $100 or less,” he wrote. “Not only will this money go a long way in ensuring we have the resources we need in the fall, but it is a fantastic show of the kind of on-the-ground support this campaign is built on.”
