Mary Draves for Congress Announces Impressive Q2 Fundraising Total Over $520,000

July 2, 2024

Midland, MI - Today, the Mary Draves for Congress campaign proudly announced an impressive second-quarter fundraising total of over $520,000. This robust figure underscores a surging momentum for Draves as she vies for a seat in Michigan’s 8th Congressional District.

"Achieving this milestone without reliance on a family trust fund shows the power of grassroots backing and a shared vision for practical and effective leadership," said Eric Harpootian, Campaign Manager for Mary Draves.

The campaign’s success comes at a critical time as constituents in MI-08 seek a representative who is actually from their district, and willing to support President Trump and US Senate candidate Mike Rogers to flip the state of Michigan by ensuring the swing county of Genesee turns out for electable Republicans.

Mary Draves:

Paul Junge:

  • It took Paul Junge FIVE years to publicly endorse President Trump
  • Is a perennial carpetbagger candidate rejected by voters twice
  • He underperformed President Trump by 5% in previous elections
  • Has spent over $5 million funding his own personal vanity runs for Congress instead of helping Trump and Gubernatorial Candidate Tudor Dixon to turn Michigan red

"We are running this campaign on the hard work and donations of everyday Michiganders and business owners," said Mary Draves. "Our strong fundraising performance this quarter is a clear message from the people in our district — they are ready for a change and believe in our mission to bring pragmatic solutions to Washington. We don’t need a trust fund to win this race; we need the united voice of real people who care about our future."

Mary has had more donations from Michigan voters in her first quarter than Paul Junge has had in all three of his primary campaigns. In Mary’s first fundraising quarter, she has garnered support from over 200 individual Michigan donors. Since 2019, Paul received donations from fewer than 140 individual Michigan donors.
