EAU CLAIRE — Small business owner and nonprofit leader Rebecca Cooke announced today that her campaign has raised over $100,000 within days of launching her candidacy for Congress in Wisconsin’s Third District. Cooke’s early fundraising strength is a clear sign that Badger State voters are eager to send a solutions-oriented leader to Washington, and signals right out of the gate that her campaign will have the resources needed to win in what will be one of the most competitive races in the country.
“This campaign is about tackling the big challenges we face, and I’m incredibly grateful for this early support that only underscores our region’s eagerness for representation with the real world experience and fresh perspective needed to get results,” said Rebecca Cooke. “From the dairy farm where I grew up to my own small business, I know firsthand the unique challenges our communities face and the tough kitchen table conversations families across western Wisconsin have everyday while Washington turns its back on us. I’m ready to get to work and be a relentless fighter for our values because all of our communities deserve opportunities for success.”
The strong fundraising haul comes on the heels of a campaign kickoff event this weekend on Cooke’s family dairy farm where she was raised.
