Unimpressive Fundraising Numbers Come as Chen’s Support for Doubling Taxes on CA Families Comes to Light, Deleted Website
Garden Grove, CA – It’s been a disappointing start to 2022 for the Chen for Congress campaign. This week, it was announced that his campaign only raised $325,000 in the fourth quarter of 2021, his worst quarter to date and continues his downward trajectory of fundraising for his campaign. This trend is not unlike Chen’s previous failed campaigns where he seemingly had an early start in fundraising, only to disappoint as voters learned more about him.
Chen’s lackluster fundraising report comes as his campaign refuses to answer questions about a deleted webpage that highlighted Chen’s support for doubling taxes on California families. Chen’s out-of-touch, Bernie Sanders-inspired, socialist agenda is front and center as he seeks to gain the attention of California Democrats, who have held their endorsement of him so far.
Meanwhile, Congresswoman Michelle Steel brought in $808,000, making her one of the top incumbent fundraisers in a competitive reelection across the country. Steel enters the new year with over $1.6 million cash-on-hand.
“Michelle Steel already defeated one Democrat that wanted to raise taxes on California families, and she is on her way to defeating another. Chen’s unimpressive fundraising is not a surprise given he is pushing a radical agenda to appease Sacramento liberals and Bernie Sanders’ supporters. Jay Chen can delete all the websites he wants, but voters, and apparently donors, know the truth,” stated Lance Trover, spokesperson for Michelle Steel for Congress.
