Cooke campaign: Raises over $600,000 during second quarter of 2024

EAU CLAIRE, Wisc. – Today, the campaign to elect Rebecca Cooke to Congress in Wisconsin’s Third District announced raising over $600,000 in the second quarter of 2024. This impressive quarter brings the campaign’s total raised to over $1,800,000 so far this cycle, as she continues to handily outpace others in the field to take on Derrick Van Orden.

This surge of support for her campaign is driven by over 12,000 contributions with an average donation of only $48. Cooke continues to build on the strong foundation she holds after coming in second during the 2022 primary despite being hugely outspent.

“I’m so grateful to the thousands of people who stepped up this quarter to be a part of our campaign to restore real leadership to Wisconsin’s Third District. Our Wisconsin communities deserve a real working class advocate fighting for our way of life in Congress, not more of serial harasser Derrick Van Orden’s bullying and partisan bickering,” said Cooke, a small business owner and non-profit leader, who is also waiting tables at night while running for Congress.

Under fire for embarrassing Wisconsin time and again, Van Orden is among the most vulnerable incumbents in the country. Just last week, Cooke’s campaign released a poll showing that the race between Cooke and Van Orden begins in a dead heat. To read the poll memo, please click here.

Cooke continued, “We are building a movement, powered by Wisconsinites all across the state, to ensure that we see real change in Washington this November. It’s past time that we restore reproductive freedoms, reinstate a farmer’s right to repair their own tractors, and deliver affordable, accessible healthcare no matter where in Wisconsin you live.”
