Steel Ends 2021 With Close to $1.7 Million Cash-On-Hand, Far Exceeding Potential Opponent Who Wants to Double Taxes on CA Families
Garden Grove, CA – In the fourth quarter of 2021, Congresswoman Michelle Steel closed the year by raising nearly $810,000, and currently has close to $1.7 million cash-on-hand. This cycle, Steel has raised $3.2 million, placing her in the top tier of all House incumbents and targeted members up for election in November.
Rep. Steel has been a leader and advocate for responsible governance. She’s worked to combat the inflation crisis by opposing Washington’s irresponsible spending habits and has led the charge to protect small businesses in an uncertain economy by opposing tax hikes.
Steel’s impressive fundraising figures are more than double what her new opponent, Jay Chen, was able to raise in Q4. Chen’s campaign has been floundering in recent weeks after it was disclosed he supports a single-payer health care plan that will double taxes on every household in California. Chen is avoiding answering questions as to why he supports doubling taxes on California’s working class families and even went so far as to secretly deleting a page on his website that stated: “I became a delegate for Bernie Sanders in 2016 because I believed in his vision of a single-payer national health care program.”
“Rep. Steel has spent her time in Washington fighting for working class people.” said Sam Oh, general consultant to the Steel campaign. “Every time Democrats have tried to raise taxes, implement new regulations, and spend wastefully – Michelle Steel has stood squarely against them. On the other hand, you have her opponent deleting his website to avoid admitting he wants to raise our taxes. Steel’s fundraising is a reflection of her as the clear choice for voters in California’s 45th District.”
