Judy Feder Raises More than $310,000 in First Quarter

More than 450 Virginians Contribute to Change Congress since January

Campaign has $700,000 Cash on Hand

McLean, VA – Judy Feder’s campaign to bring change to Congress continues to gain momentum. The Feder campaign will report raising more than $310,000 in the first three months of 2008 with almost $200,000 contributed in March alone and approximately 95% of donations coming from individuals in the first quarter.

“People want change.” said Feder. “They voted for it last November. They turned out in record numbers for it in February. They are contributing to my campaign because they know that’s what I stand for.”

Since announcing her challenge to Frank Wolf, Judy has raised nearly $900,000 and now has $700,000 cash on hand.

“Frank Wolf has been sitting in Congress for 28 years. Virginians are saying: “That’s enough.”

Over 450 Virginians contributed to Feder’s campaign in the first quarter of 2008 and 538 individual donors gave online, demonstrating the growing grassroots appeal of Judy’s message. Seven months out from the November election, the Feder campaign has already raised more than it had by Labor Day of 2006 when Judy Feder gave Frank Wolf his closest race in 24 years.

“Our momentum is building. Our fundraising success has built a foundation that will give us the financial resources and the grassroots capacity to win in November,” said Feder. Virginians are tired of empty promises and blue ribbon commissions, they want real leadership.”

In 2006, Judy Feder mounted the strongest challenge to Frank Wolf in nearly a quarter century. Though Feder entered the 2006 race a mere 10 months before Election Day, she cut dramatically into Wolf's margin, revealing a growing call for change in the district. That call has grown, as voters in the 10th and across the Commonwealth are demanding that Congress begin to address rising health care costs, a weakened economy and a war in Iraq that has sapped the ability of our nation to focus on the priorities of the American people.
