First fundraising quarter sees Caroline Gleich, U.S. Senate hopeful, raise nearly $390,000

PARK CITY, Utah – U.S. Senate Candidate Caroline Gleich, running as a Democrat for Sen. Mitt Romney’s seat, raised nearly $390,000 in her first quarter fundraising report.

Gleich, who resides in Park City, secured substantial funding from almost 8,000 individuals, achieving the most significant first-quarter fundraising endeavor by a Democratic U.S. Senate candidate in over four decades.

“I’m extremely excited and humbled by the groundswell of support we’ve seen since launching our campaign in January. As a ski mountaineer, I’ve learned that we never climb a mountain alone, which is why I’m proud to have a strong grassroots team supporting our climb to the US Senate,” Gleich said.

Among all contenders vying for Sen. Romney’s vacant seat, Gleich ranks second in fundraising, trailing only behind Republican candidate Brad Wilson, who has garnered over $1.25 million.

Gleich, who announced her candidacy in January of this year, is running on a platform centered around protecting the environment, social justice, and gender equity.

“I don’t look like a typical Senator. I’m not an entrenched politician, I don’t come from a political dynasty, and I don’t have millions of dollars to loan my campaign,” Gleich said.

“However, I’m thrilled to have the support of thousands of Utahns who are ready for a different kind of leadership in Washington, and I’m ready to advocate for our families, our freedom, and our future.”

Gleich recently highlighted her experiences as a professional ski mountaineer and longtime climate activist in a unique campaign launch video, which has recently garnered national attention.

The first quarter fundraising report states 99% of donations came from individuals, with $42.66 as the average contribution to Gleich’s campaign.
