Speaker Eileen Filler-Corn released her first-quarter fundraising numbers showing the most cash on hand of any Virginia Speaker of the House entering the second quarter of an election year.
Filler-Corn has over $1.75 million cash on hand in her combined accounts after raising over $580,000 in the first three months of 2021, which included a prohibition during the General Assembly Session. The Speaker has committed to using every resource at her disposal to ensure the House of Delegates’ remarkable progress is protected for future generations.
“Virginians have seen Democrats govern effectively these last two years, delivering on promises they made to voters during the 2019 campaign,” said Tyler Javonillo, a campaign spokesman for Speaker Filler-Corn. “This incredible show of support is a clear sign that House Democrats have the energy and momentum needed to effectively communicate their record to voters, as well as defend and expand their majority.”
After investing over $1 million in 2019 to support Democrats’ momentous electoral victories, Speaker Filler-Corn guided the House of Delegates through three landmark legislative sessions, which helped establish Virginia as a national leader on issues of importance. Since Filler-Corn’s election as Speaker, the House of Delegates has expanded healthcare coverage; increased the minimum wage and provided additional protections for working Virginians; provided new pathways to good-paying jobs; passed commonsense gun safety legislation; abolished the death penalty; and legalized marijuana in the Commonwealth.
