HARTFORD, Conn. – The Connecticut Democratic Party maintained its fundraising pace in May and was able to raise about $195,000, including six $10,000 donations from individuals and $20,000 in donations from Political Action Committees.
The party also brought in money from Democratic Gov. Dan Malloy’s re-election campaign, which purchased a voter file from the party for $10,000.
The Connecticut Republican Party was able to raise about $35,900 during that same time period. However, while May wasn’t a large fundraising month for the GOP, they still have about $157,000 cash on hand after a better than usual April.
