Shumlin and others announce campaign finance details

Gov. Peter Shumlin is one of three statewide candidates to have announced his latest campaign finance details, along with Lt. Gov. Phil Scott and candidate for state attorney general TJ Donovan.

Shumlin has raised over $676,000 to date, with $492,000 coming from this reporting period alone, meaning he raised $492,000 in the past year. Meanwhile, Scott reported raising $31,409, while Donovan raised $129,710 from 678 different donors.

Erika Wolffing, finance director for Shumlin’s campaign, said the campaign is “honored and humbled by the outpouring of financial support.” She added that this year Shumlin has not self-financed any of his campaign – in 2010 Shumlin lent himself $50,000 for the elections.

Ryan Emerson, a spokesman for Donovan’s campaign, spoke of Donovan’s “extraordinary fundraising success” for a campaign which began less than 4 months ago.
