Steel Raised Over $2.3 Million Through 9k Unique Donors in First Half of 2023
Garden Grove, CA – This morning, Congresswoman Michelle Steel announced raising over $1.1 million in the second quarter of 2023. The impressive 3-month number brings Steel’s 2023 total to over $2.3 million, coming from 9,112 unique donors. Steel currently has $1.7 million cash-on-hand for her 2024 reelection campaign.
Steel remains one of the top fundraisers in Congress and her grassroots strength has led local leaders to question if Democrats can remain competitive in this Biden +6 congressional district. Both the Orange and Los Angeles County Republican Parties and the California Republican Party have consolidated around Steel in her resection for CA-45.
“Congresswoman Steel won reelection on a promise to deliver results for this community, and her overwhelming support is a reflection of her work day in and day out to fight for Southern California,” stated Steel’s general consultant, Sam Oh. “She has been a true leader on some of the most pressing issues of our time – from standing up to China, to lowering inflation, to ensuring education remains accessible and equal for all Americans.”
Rep. Michelle Steel won reelection in 2022 by 4.8% in one of 18 Republican-held seats that Biden won in 2020. Cook Political Report currently projects the race as Lean Republican.
