Abdul El-Sayed raises over $2 million in bid for Governor; accepts no corporate PAC contributions

Abdul El-Sayed, Democratic Candidate for Governor, has raised over $2 million in individual contributions as of January 30th, 2018, since launching his gubernatorial campaign last February. Seventy eight percent (78%) of all contributions are under $100.

“I became a doctor to solve problems for people. I am running for governor because I care about bold, progressive ideas to help Michiganders. In a political system that favors mega-rich individuals and massive corporations, raising enough money to compete means earning the trust of the people who you hope will support you. We’re absolutely thrilled with what we’ve been able to do: build a true grassroots movement funded by real people, not corporations. This is the kind of movement that will create the kind of change we need in Michigan.” — Abdul El-Sayed, Democratic Candidate for Michigan Governor
