16th Worcester District Election: Who Leads the Fundraising Race?

Wednesday, August 07, 2013


The Democratic primary for the Worcester 16th District House seat is less than a week away, and Democrat Daniel Donahue leads all candidates in fundraising to date.

Candidates had to file Pre-Special Primary Reports with the Massachusetts Office of Campaign and Political Finance by August 5, the first of three required by the state.

Donahue ended the reporting period of July 1 through July 26 with $17,549.84, after reporting taking in $12,506 during that time. See the report here.

"From the beginning, I've had one strategy: To build this campaign on a strong grassroots foundation, and to talk consistently about the issues that matter to working families. We've raised the most money to date because our message has resonated with residents across the 16th District," said Donahue.

"My plans for the next week of this campaign are the same as they've been since we started - to spend every day talking to as many voters as possible about those issues."

What the Candidates Raised -- and Spent

Republican candidate Carol Claros was second among candidates in fundraising efforts during the same time period, garnering $6,660 in receipts and ending with $7,996.83 on hand.

Claros' campaign manager Jim Knowlton told GoLocal, "Carol filed with nearly $8,000 cash on hand. Carol is a single mom and nurse, spending her days visiting with Worcester neighbors to talk about reducing the tax burden -- and stopping paying legislators driving to work."

Rounding out the rest of the Democratic field included Joshua Perro close on the heels of Claros, raising $6,225 during the recent reporting period. Perro was also the biggest spender during the timeframe, reporting expenditures of $6,400.16, to end with $4,754.10.

Daniele Nanni reported having $5,113.11 on hand, and Khrystian King finished with $3,728.33.

King's campaign co-manager Tyler Wolanin told GoLocal, "We are happy with our fundraising. Those who know Khrystian best, the families he's helped, the children he's mentored and coached, and the community leaders he's worked with, have been very supportive of our campaign and for that we are proud."

He continued, "We are focused on having a one to one conversation with everyone in the district. When people hear about Khrystian's lifelong commitment to helping children and families and making our neighborhoods safe, they are quick to support him. Our goal is to have conversations with thousands of voters this week."

James O'Brien raised $850 during the month, and currently has $1,713.19.
