Candidate raises $50,000 in first six months
(Ramona, Calif.) – Conservative Republican Mike Harrison, a candidate for the 71st Assembly District, announced that he’s raised $50,000 for the period ending June 30, 2015. This amount of fundraising represents as much as all candidates combined for the entire year the last time the seat was open.
“I’m incredibly humbled and greatly encouraged by the show of support I have received,” said Harrison. “I’m more committed than ever to prove myself to those who have been willing to invest in my campaign and will continue working hard to be part of the proud tradition of strong, conservative leadership in East County.”
Harrison has spent more than 20 years working for the East County region as an aide to Congressman Duncan D. Hunter and his father, Congressman Duncan Hunter, before him. He’s worked in the Washington, DC office as well the district office, covering the region as a liaison between the community and Congress on a broad range of policy issues.
“Mike has been one of the most effective members of my staff since I took office,” said Congressman Duncan D. Hunter, currently serving his fourth term in Congress. “I was elected soon after finishing my military career and I have relied on Mike to help lead my office. He’s been critical to our success and I know he’s going to make a positive impact in Sacramento.”
Assemblyman Brian Jones won the district in a competitive Primary in 2010. In all of 2009, Jones raised $22,264 and his main opponent, El Cajon Mayor Bill Wells, raised $24,294. Harrison’s $50,000 through June 30 provides him with a strong and impressive start in the race.
Mike Harrison joined the staff of Congressman Duncan Hunter in 1994 and for more than 20 years has been a community leader working to help businesses and constituents navigate the federal government. Harrison’s knowledge of the district, his understanding of the issues, and his relationships with residents and civic leaders district-wide will help make him an impact player in Sacramento.
