FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Lakewood, Washington – 2,635 donors have contributed to support Denny Heck’s campaign to represent Washington’s new 10th Congressional District. Heck raised $310,000 in the second quarter of 2012. Nearly 90% of individual donors to the campaign live in Washington State.
“We’re in a great position heading into the August 7th primary election. We’ve hired five field organizers, opened two offices, and personally reached out to more than 35,000 voters in the district over the phone or at their doors. Denny’s focus on strengthening the American middle class and those working to get into it is really resonating with voters,” Campaign Manager Hart Edmonson said.
Heck is running in the newly created 10th Congressional District. The 10th is a Democratic district that gave President Obama 58% of the major party vote in 2008.
Denny Heck, 59, is an entrepreneur, former State Representative and co-founder of TVW, a statewide public affairs TV channel in Washington State.
