Noah Arbit Announces Record-Breaking $71,000 Raised in Under Two Months, Posts Largest First Quarter for a State House Candidate in Michigan History
Record-breaking first quarter powered by individual supporters demonstrates Arbit’s deep communal support, places campaign in commanding position for Democrats’ top 2022 pick-up opportunity
WEST BLOOMFIELD, Mich. — Ahead of the October 25th campaign finance reporting deadline, Noah Arbit (D-West Bloomfield) announced his campaign’s top-line fundraising numbers.
Since launching his campaign for the Michigan House of Representatives on August 26th, Arbit has raised a total of $71,277 through 425 contributions from 358 individual supporters. 91% of contributors to Arbit’s campaign reside in the State of Michigan, with the greatest proportion of contributions coming from residents of West Bloomfield. Arbit did not solicit or accept any PAC contributions.
Arbit’s robust fundraising breaks the statewide record for the largest first quarter for any candidate for the state house in the history of the State of Michigan, including all previous Democratic candidates running in a West Bloomfield-based house seat.
“To see the incredible amount of support for this campaign from so many members of our community – in just under two months – is beyond humbling and meaningful,” Arbit said. “I am profoundly grateful to everyone who has contributed to help build this campaign at the outset, and to everyone who has put their faith in me to flip this seat. Our record-breaking first quarter makes clear that this district is energized and ready to send fresh, new leadership to Lansing. Greater West Bloomfield and Commerce deserve a state representative who leads with conviction, faith, and fidelity, and who exhausts every path to deliver innovative, common-sense solutions for Michigan. That’s the kind of person I am, and the kind of leader I strive to be. I am so excited to continue meeting people across our district, to learn how the state can best help meet the needs of families, workers, students, and small businesses in our community – now and in the future.”
