HERSHEY, PA --- Today, the congressional campaign of Democratic challenger Thomas F. Brier, Jr., announced a record fundraising haul of $100,026 in his bid to represent Pennsylvania’s 10th District.
Brier’s first quarter total, gathered entirely from individual donors, marks the most money ever raised in the opening quarter of a challenger campaign in the history of the new 10th and former 15th Districts.
“Our campaign, at its core, is dedicated to restoring a sense of civic unity in the Tenth District,” Brier said. “And although it’s still early, the support for our message has been overwhelmingly positive. There is a genuine feeling of excitement that comes with something new, and our fundraising efforts reflect the fact that people in the Tenth District are incredibly excited about supporting fresh ideas and a new generation of leadership. We can’t wait to see what the future holds.”
“We can’t imagine a better start to our campaign,” said Brier’s Finance Director, Olivia Termini. “Not only did we set a fundraising record, but we did it with the support of Democrats and Republicans alike. Voters on both sides of the aisle can sense that something special is happening.”
Brier is a graduate of Hershey High School, Dickinson College, and Penn State Law. After law school, Brier clerked on the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit before working at an international law firm in Philadelphia. Brier also published a book, While Reason Slept, and serves as a fellow with the Pennsylvania Bar Association, where he provides free legal services to families and individuals across the Commonwealth.
