LAS VEGAS — The Nevada State Democratic Party is proud to announce that 2021 was a record-breaking year for fundraising, with total contributions of $849,072.75, out of which $609,596.75 came directly from small-dollar donors. This record-breaking individual donor total surpasses even that of 2019, the year leading up to Nevada’s First-In-The-West Caucus, when individual donors gave $523,732.85 to the state party, and the overall total surpasses the mean total over the past 10 years.
“We are extremely proud of these numbers,” said Nevada State Democratic Party Chair Judith Whitmer. “I ran my campaign for chair on a platform of prioritizing the voices of regular people, not big corporate donors or dark-money super PACs, and I’m so proud of our team for following through on that. The Democratic Party should be the party of the people and that is represented in our strategy from top to bottom.
“Most of this money ($763,687.55 total and $585,385.76 from individual donors) was raised between March and December, after our party leadership changed hands and a new staff was hired. We’re entering the 2022 cycle with $521,024.02 cash on hand, which we’re going to use to mount a huge field campaign. We plan on connecting with voters on the ground about supporting Democrats in races big and small in all 17 of Nevada’s counties through our Democrats for Nevada coordinated campaign. I believe that well-run down-ballot elections are key to victory at the top of the ticket, and I look forward to keeping this momentum going and delivering a blue Nevada in 2022!”
