Brings in average of $100k a week since opening Senate account, $650k total for quarter

Boston, MA --- Citing strong momentum from Congressman Joe Kennedy III’s announcement of his U.S. Senate run, Kennedy for Massachusetts announced that it had raised over $650,000 this third fundraising quarter. On average the campaign brought in $100,000 a week since Kennedy opened his Senate account at the end of August, raising over $400,000 in the past month.

Kennedy ended September with $4.2 million cash on hand. A previous recipient of corporate PAC money, Kennedy took the No Corporate PAC pledge in early September before getting in the Senate race. Additionally, he has called for a People’s Pledge to keep dark money out of the primary election.

“I’m humbled by all of the support we have received in the early days of this campaign, giving us the resources we need to travel across the Commonwealth and highlight the voices and places that our current system takes for granted and leaves behind,” said Congressman Kennedy. “From Boston to Springfield, Gloucester to Fall River, I look forward to earning the trust of voters across Massachusetts over the next several months.”

Since announcing his bid for Senate, Congressman Kennedy has prioritized showing up for the people and places that our government, policies and institutions have long let down. Over the past several weeks, he has visited food pantries, homeless shelters, community health centers, affordable housing complexes, and sat down with young men involved in the criminal justice system, immigrants, veterans, and local fishermen to champion the people he believes should be at the heart of the Commonwealth’s fight.
