ELAN CARR RAISES MORE THAN $400,000 DURING FIRST FINANCIAL REPORTING PERIOD IN LA COUNTY SUPERVISOR RACE
Carr Demonstrates Broad Support From All Across LA County
Los Angeles – July 1, 2015 — Criminal gang prosecutor and Iraq war veteran Elan Carr, candidate for Los Angeles County Supervisor, released this morning his campaign’s fundraising results for the first financial reporting period of the race. In less than 4 months since launching his campaign, Carr raised $415,000. Carr also scored several high-profile endorsements, including from California’s largest law enforcement organization, PORAC, which represents over 67,000 peace officers, and renowned radio host Dennis Prager.
Carr’s Chief Strategist, John Thomas, stated, “$415,000 raised in less than four months, and a year in advance of the election, puts Elan on track to reach the fundraising cap of $1.4 million and max-out his campaign war chest well before Election Day in June, 2016. Elan’s strong fundraising results, coupled with his substantial early lead in the polls, demonstrates broad support from the community and compelling electoral strength.
“With robust resources to tell his story as a crime fighter for LA County, Elan is likely to win the Primary in June. Given that this fundraising report comes on the heels of his endorsement by an organization representing 67,000 cops, Elan continues to hit it out of the park at every turn.”
Elan Carr said, “I am so honored and proud of the early support our campaign has received. Such strong support from so many citizens confirms that LA County residents want a Supervisor with first-hand public safety experience and a proven track record of putting dangerous criminals behind bars. As Supervisor, I will work for safer streets, better schools, and the kind of economic opportunities that our children deserve.”
