Good news from the Cameron Webb for Congress (VA05) campaign:
Democrat Dr. Cameron Webb Posts Dominant Q2 Fundraising Haul, Trouncing Opponent Bob Good
Dr. Webb’s campaign pulled in more than $850k with more than $435k cash on hand compared to Bob Good’s $68k COH
Charlottesville, VA— Dr. Cameron Webb, a Democrat and physician running for Congress in Virginia’s 5th Congressional District, announced today that he raised $850,623.67 in the second quarter of 2020.
Webb finished the quarter with $453k cash on hand, compared to his opponent Bob Good’s $68k.
A sign of Dr. Webb’s momentum, $635,205.95 of his quarterly total, came after the pre-primary filing deadline on June 3rd. Further, Webb received more than 15,996 individual contributions in the second quarter of 2020.
“I’m thankful for the support our campaign has received from voters in our district and supporters across America who know that Congress desperately needs new voices that will be able to meet the unique challenges facing our country right now,” said Webb. “I’m running for Congress because families all across the 5th district deserve a Representative who has the experience to fight for universal health coverage, a strong economic recovery, and a more equitable criminal justice system on day one.”
Webb was recently named one of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee’s Red to Blue Program candidates. He has been endorsed by Senator Kamala Harris, Democratic Whip Jim Clyburn, Democratic Caucus Chairman Hakeem Jeffries, Rep. John Lewis, 314 Action, End Citizens United, the Virginia Carpenters, Planned Parenthood, and NARAL among others.
Dr. Webb’s unique background, his campaign’s fundraising showing, and the energy within the district stemming from his dominant primary victory give him strong headwinds heading into November. The Washington Post noted VA-05 as a “seat within reach for Democrats in the general election for the first time in more than a decade,” and polling indicates this seat is squarely in play for Democrats heading into November. Finally, the Cook Political Report recently shifted its rating for the district from “Likely” to “Lean” Republican, indicative of Dr. Webb’s momentum.
