Austin, Texas—Today, Democratic candidate for Texas’ 10th congressional district, Mike Siegel, announced his campaign totaled over $150,000 in its first quarter from over 1,000 contributions, showing that the campaign has greatly increased their fundraising potential. Last election, Siegel raised around $500,000 in his bid to unseat Rep. Michael McCaul, closing a wide margin and turning TX10 into a nationally competitive congressional district.
The Siegel campaign has also garnered a number of key national and local endorsements such as: Ted Lieu, U.S. Congressman CA-33; Progressive Democrats of America (PDA); International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW); National Union of Healthcare Workers; Leslie Pool, Austin City Councilwoman; Brigid Shea, Travis County Commissioner; Former Rep. Elliott Naishtat; Mike Floyd, Pearland ISD School Board; Kendric Jones, Prairie View City Councilman; Eric Green, Alderman, City of Brookshire; and others.
“Last election, our campaign did the unthinkable and turned a 19-point-gap district, people had forgotten, into a national battleground. I am excited for the renewed interest in this race. But, I am also excited to be the nominee once again to finish the job we started and unseat Rep. McCaul. Along with our record-breaking election last year, our numbers and support show that we are the campaign to take back this district and restore representation to the people of the Texas 10th.”
