Businesswoman has raised more than $750K and secured Endorsements from nearly 70 Organizations and Current and Former Elected Officials

Roseville: Businesswoman Brynne Kennedy announced today that she raised more than $200,000 in the last quarter for her bid to unseat incumbent 4th Congressional District Rep. Tom McClintock, and unveiled a list of more than 70 organizations and current and former elected officials who have endorsed her candidacy. Click here to see list.

“While Tom McClintock raises money from PG&E, big drug companies and other well-connected interests, our campaign is earning support from the hard working communities that he has abandoned and left in the dark,” Kennedy said. “From Truckee to Coarsegold, it is clear that the people of the fourth district are ready for a change.”

Of more than 1,000 donations received in Q4, Kennedy noted that more than 60% came from within the 4th district, and nearly 95% came from California. With her total donations from 2019 totaling more than $750,000, Kennedy has raised more money at this point in the election cycle than any prior McClintock challenger.

Kennedy’s list of endorsements includes the Sacramento-Sierra Building Trades Council, Sierra Business Council President Steven Frisch, and more than 30 current and former local elected officials from within the 4th district—including former Roseville Mayor Gina Garbolino, El Dorado County Supervisors John Hidahl and Sue Novasel, South Lake Tahoe Mayor Brooke Laine, Amador County School Board President Susan Ross, Alpine County Supervisor Ron Hames, Calaveras County Supervisors Jack Garamendi and Merita Calloway, Former Tuolumne County Supervisors Paulo Maffei and Laurie Sylvester, and Mariposa County Supervisor Rosemarie Smallcombe.

“I built a successful business from scratch—not by focusing on Republican or Democratic solutions, but by working to find the right solution,” Kennedy added. “The hard working people of the 4th district have had enough of politicians trying to pit us against each other. We all deserve a leader who will set partisanship aside and put our community first. That’s why I’m so proud to have so many local leaders and non-partisan office holders joining our campaign.”
